    Minion DHF EXO/TR Tire

    Something of a fixture on the trails in the past few years, the Maxxis Minion, in all it's various iterations, has been living up to its name famously since its creation. Nimbler than its Highroller II Sibling and scrappy enough to stay standing through loose, white-knuckle sections of trail, we'd reach for the 29in Minion DHF EXO/TR Tire gladly on days that challenge us to stay engaged through every mile.

    As we mentioned, the Minion comes in different combinations of compounds and casings; this version is equipped with a dual compound rubber construction to give it speed on smooth singletrack or the occasional fire road, with dependable grip and traction when the going gets rougher and switchbacks appear. To give you the confidence to take on bumps and bruises and a few bigger-than-intended hits, this Minion also comes with the reassurance of Maxxis EXO protection beefing it up.

    Finally, a collection of squared off, ramped knobs are responsible for grabbing onto the trail and digging in, arranged strategically to give you traction while cornering without slowing you down too much on the straightaways and descents. The Minion's far from the speediest tire in existence, but it's not trying to be the fastest. Staying efficient on the smooth stuff and being ready to dive in when things get messy is the Minion DHF's mission, and it does so with aplomb.

    • Prepared to push the limits of your trail frame
    • Dual compound construction adapts tire to terrain
    • Ramped, square knobs dig in and hold on
    • EXO protection prepares the tire for bumps and bruises

    Get it.

      Easy ordering. Fast delivery. Back out riding with outstanding grip/traction.

      I will forever go with thees!!!!

      Great tire

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Does the job well and very durable.

      Great Front Tire

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used this tire for over a year as a front tire. Still has good tread and still has great traction. I recently added a DHR for the rear after my High Roller wore out. These are the gold standard of MTB tires in my opinion!

      The best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I absolutely love this tire. Super grippy on the downhill and still no to bulky to crush a big climb. I love the squared off profile of Maxxis tires as well. Seems confidence inspiring on the downhill.

      Best front tire I've tried yet.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Tremendous combo of outstanding grip and relatively low rolling resistance. I had a Schwallbe Hans Dampf on the front and Nobby Nic on the back, and as soon as I put these on my bike took off on the uphills and tracked better on the downhill. I ride mostly dry conditions, but I prefer these (DHF front and Ardent back) in any condition versus other tires I've tried. Great stuff.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the go to for about everyone. I back up what everyone is saying. Favorite front and sometimes rear too.

      Best Front Tire

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This tire gives me more and more confidence in every turn, thick tread with great rolling efficiency. I would recommend this tire to any everyday trail rider, it will make your riding that much better.

      Get a Grip

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Hands down the best front tire. The 2.5 inch width allows you to run lower pressure for additional grip and better control.

      I would recommend this tire for anyone looking for a reliable and confidence inspiring ride.

      Great Front Tire

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used this for 8 months as a front tire on my bike. I went from a 2.3 to a 2.5 width with this tire and I love it. Makes technical obstacles much easier to climb. I have had no issues with this tire and it works very well.

      Best front tire

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      IMO this is the best front tire on the market. Good grip in the corners, but still pedals well.

      Attitude adjustment 4 XC rig

        I bought this front tire to beef up the traction and durability factors on my Trek Superfly 100 full-suspension mtb before a big cross country MTB vacation from Virginia to Utah with stops in Wyoming, Park City, Moab and Fruita. I set them up tubeless with Stan's and ran low pressure (~16-18psi). No flats the entire trip and even raced a stage race around Harrisonburg in early July with no problems. These tires change the attitude of my XC racer giving it some 'endurobility' and handle everything I can throw at them. Utah rocks, Moab sand, PC's alpine loam, H'burg's rocks and roots, even light snow over frozen terrain.

        Do you use them front and rear?

        DHF is life

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The Minion is the only tire I run right now, and will probably stick to it until they figure out something better. Love it in all conditions.

        front and rear?


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The title honestly says it all. This is the only front tire i have confidence in on my 29" trail bike. The 2.5 width offers amazing traction, and rolling capabilities. I've put this and many other tires through the wringer, but time after time I find myself ordering this tire.

        Excellent Rock-Throwing Front Tire!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        When I hear rocks hitting my frame I know this tire is grabbing the gnar! I have had 0 punctures on this tire in over 500 miles and love it. The cornering traction is very confidence inspiring. I would recommend this tire as a go to front for trail mt biking.

        Perfect Front For Any Bike

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I always prefer a beefier front tire with a slightly faster rolling rear. Durable and grippy.

        Ol' Faithful

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        After trying and being disappointed by other tires, I keep coming back to the minion DHF for front wheel traction and dependability. It's confidence inspiring, weight is within reason, and doesn't feel horribly slow for how knobby it is. I also personally think the 2.5 width is just about as perfect as it gets for all around aggressive trail riding. Definitely will be overkill for some I suppose so luckily they offer a 2.3 option for folks with other priorities.

        I pair it with either a DHR, High Roller II, or Ardent rear depending on mood/conditions. All of those work great for their intended uses. DHR being super aggressive riding where maximum brake traction is needed, HR II for all around riding with solid compromise of traction and rolling resistance, and the ardent for maximum speed as long as you can sacrifice some traction and durability.

        All of my opinions are formed entirely around my experience riding in Utah and the surrounding rockies, so dry and rocky terrain. Mud, loam, and roots are not common here. The few times I've had these tires on such terrain though.. I found them to be incredible in loam/soft dirt, ok in mud not perfect, and mediocre on wet/slippy roots. Then again, are any tires great in mud and slippy roots? Maybe... I have no idea.

        so far so awesome

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        running this tire (2.5) in the front combo-ed with a aggressor 2.3 in the rear. awesome combination for an enduro- trail bike set up. rolls plenty fast and hooks up so well cornering.

        How do you think this setup would work on a rigid single speed on loose over hard pack with rolling hills?


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        inwas playing with tire combos so i got the minion 2.5 to go on the front of my rip nine carbon. it fits with plenty of room on a non boosted fox float 34, with a mud guard. its heavy but its a tank and grips like a sumbitch. the stiff sidewall alows for less psi, i tried 20 and it ran over everything in its path with no problem. I also bought the ardent in both sizes, i opted for them to save a little weight, they perform great.

        Thinking of getting one for my front on my Ripley 29. Good to know I can run it at 20 Lbs or less with these 938 rims. I think I'll move the Noby Nic to the rear
