Tailored to aggressive trails and technical descents, the Maxxis Minion DHF 3C/Double Down/TR 27.5in Tire sets the standard in traction and control when you're pushing things to the absolute limit. This particular version of the Minion DHF features 3C Maxx Terra compound, which is a triple-compound rubber that's harder along the base layer, getting progressively softer along the top layers for heightened traction and control. Since it's a bit softer than traditional dual-compound tires, you'll notice an increase in overall grip, albeit with a minor compromise in rolling resistance and tread longevity. Overall, it's a great choice if you're seeking the best in traction and control, especially as a burly front tire for tracking across the rough stuff.
The Maxxis Minion DHF 3C/Double Down/TR 27.5in Tire excels over a wide variety of conditions, from loose-over-hard to medium-packed dirt and loose, drifty surfaces. Its directional ramped knobs facilitate straight-line control at high speeds, with channel-cut knobs for aggressive cornering traction along the shoulders. This version is beefed-up with the Double Down Casing for peace of mind when you're dropping into the roughest of descents with sharp rocks, rock rolls, and bigger drops. This casing is reinforced with a butyl layer, which gives it robust toughness without the hefty weight of a dedicated downhill tire.
