    Minion DHF Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR Tire

    An ancient shredder once said “Going fast isn’t the main thing, it’s the only thing.” Wise words, and Maxxis took them to heart when it designed the (slightly) new Minion DHF Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR 27.5in Tire. The Minion DHF Wide tire is made to rally with an updated tread pattern that serves up more grip when mounted on wider rims without making you lay your rig on its side.

    It goes without saying that the Minion DHF can be run tubeless, which means lower PSI and more grip, and that it’s EXO casing can hammer down the fastest, sharpest trails without taking a killer hit. Finally, note that the Maxx Grip compound is softer and mores responsive to braking than the harder, fast-rolling Maxx Terra.

    • Maxxis' iconic front tire for aggressive terrain
    • Large side blocks for cornering stability
    • Ramped tread design minimizes rolling resistance
    • Wide trail casing optimized for 30 - 35mm rims
    • MaxxGrip offers softer rebound and maximum grip
    • MaxxTerra balances grip with rolling speed & wear life
    • Lighter EXO casing offers sidewall protection
    • EXO+ offers bead to bead protection for better puncture resistance

    Knobby, grippy, goodness

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The DHF\DHR combination of tires is a go-to for many people for good reason.

    The amount of grip and traction is pretty ridiculous. I swapped out my XC IKON tires due to losing traction on the trails. These new tires were used on everything from beginner level smooth trails to more advanced, leaf covered chunky descents with rocks, roots and sweeping berms. The tires have great grip and I found my speed on the downhills has improved from the increased confidence from the traction. Obviously the extra knobby set up will affect rolling resistance. I wouldn't want these on my bike if I had a long XC trail planned but, my overall time at the local trails has improved. If you ride more XC \ smooth trails then, you might consider a less knobby setup. If you are riding a good amount of gnarly\technical trails with good downhill sections then, this is a great option and the cost is good too. If you are doing a lot of downhill, this is a no-brainer.

    Knobby, grippy, goodness

    DHF are the best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Run these front and rear. Love the 3C compound. You can go DD but then you are carrying a ton of weight. These get the job done, best compound IMO.

    DHF All Day!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best front tire hands down! Most of my riding is done in Utah where the trails are typically loose and dry. I've run the 2.3in and 2.5in (both 3C Maxx Terra) versions of this tire and the 2.5in comes out on top in terms of stability, grip, and the ability to run slightly lower tire pressures. The tread pattern combined with the 3C MAXX Terra provides exceptional grip, yet doesn't wear as quick as some of the softer rubber compounds. In my opinion this is the best front tire on the market and I can't recommend it enough!

    BEST front tire period

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have put over 2k miles on this tire and can say with confidence they are the best hands down. The good rolling resistance and cornering is amazing. I would not race with this tyre but for everything else it works the best

    Great, but not invincible

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I only rode this a few times before center punching on a sharp rock and ruining the front. It was surprising, but if you want to do stuff like that, then get the double down casing I guess?

    Also, the description is wrong... the Maxx Grip is the softer, more DH version... and it’s heavier. For all around trail, I like the Maxx terra.

    Rockin it on the rear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I blew up one of these as my rear tire (pinched in some rocks on the downhill, probably my fault air-pressure wise) but loved it so much I replaced it with a new one!

    great on narrow rims too

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm only writing this because I was leery of putting this on a narrow rim (mine are 21mm internal), but after trying I urge anyone else in the same boat to buy this tire. tried contis (pita to seal, ok traction), liked my 2.3 dhr2 and dhf better, and then I found the 2.5 dhf......easy to seal, sheds mud, grips in the loose, and the 2.3-2.5 improvement in ride quality from lower pressure is huge. this tire is the best <$100 upgrade you can find....

    Simply the Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Minion DHF (wide trail) is simply the best all around mountain tire you can have. I don't care what size wheels or terrain. If you have any sort of mountain bike that isn't racing XC this is the tire for your ride!

    Loads of Grip, excellent sidewall protection and great longevity. (3C/EXO/TR)

    If you need more you can get DD for more pinch flat durability and/or more cur resistance to the really rockiest of trails.

    Double down

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I put DHF on front and rear of my Mach 5.5 custom build for this summer. So far they've felt grippy, burly and loads of fun! Cant wait to get more miles on em

    Grippy & Light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best tires for racing, I run the 2.5 on the front and 2.4 on rear for a enduro combo.

    Grippy & Light

    Thank you for 2.5!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been thoroughly impressed by this tire. I run it as the front tire on my Santa Cruz Nomad. I ride in and around Salt Lake where our trails are mostly dry hardpack, with some loose over top.
    I upgraded from the 2.3 after getting a new wheelset and was a little wary of decreased rolling speed with little gain in traction. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I love them! They have so much traction, especially in corners. On the first ride I felt that I could just push my front wheel into corners and it gripped all the way through. The wider footprint provides noticeably more grip from the side nobs while cornering. It also provides great traction while braking.
    Durability has been great, they've lasted as long as any tire I've owned. This is a killer tire for modern trail bikes!

    Great Tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These tires are the best I’ve run on my bike. I use them for XC and Enduro rides and races. I have a tubeless setup on my Cannondale Habit. I ride a lot of technical tracks and get a lot of sidewall impact and the tires keeping going. Great cornering grip and climbing capability. This is my second set. Will never buy anything different.

    Best Tires!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I run these tires tubeless on my Santa Cruz 5010 and absolutely love them. I'm not a fan of the 2.8 plus sized tires, but the 2.5 allows you to run lower pressure to smooth out the ride and increase grip all around (without losing too much speed). I have been nothing but satisfied in a variety of conditions!

    fantastic tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    fills out my IBIS 741 rims quite well, added grip, smooth rolling, better profile than the DHF 2.3.

    Love It

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent tire.. wider is better. Great traction on hard turns and super stable. Confidence builder!! Also helps on the rocky uphill climb. Thickness of tires help from punctures from those nasty cacti in the desert.

    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.

    Fritz... the Maxxis Minion DHF has become a legendary MTB trail tire -especially on the front. Those with newly popular 30-35mm wide MTB rims (internal) seem to love the new 2.5-2.6 WideTrail sizes from Maxxis. I have 30mm wide (internal) rims on my Ibis Mojo 3. My question: Plenty of folks seem to run the same DHF tire on the rear also. But what do you recommend for the rear?? The same DHF tire in the same size on the rear? Or the DHR II in the same size, or... ?

    New Go To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently switched to this tire from a High-Roller II and I couldn't be happier! This tire is a lot more burly and has tons of grip in the corners. It is a pretty big tire for climbing however, it still gets the job done! I plan on using this tire for most conditions.

    BURLY times!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Threw this tire on my ride and instantly noticed a major difference in the ride itself. This tire looks burly and it crushes on climbs and descents. Couldn't be happier!

    Sweet Tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my go to tire for most conditions. Tons of grip and unmatched side knobs that rail corners. Highly recommended.
