Why We Like The Minion DHR II 3C/TR Tire
The Minion DHR II 3C/TR Tire has long been the gold standard for riders wanting maximum traction and cornering grip on steep and loose terrain. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges for quick accelerations, as well as strategically placed siping for smooth transitions when leaning the bike over. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking so you can have full control when you're scrubbing speed before the next technical section. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for an unstoppable combo for aggressive trail riding.
This version of the DHR II uses Maxxis' Wide Trail construction for an optimal tread profile on modern 30 - 35mm internal width rims. The 3C MaxxTerra compound uses three different durometer rubbers for an ideal balance of outstanding grip, long wear life, and low rolling resistance.

Great Front Tire
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I swapped my 29" DHF 2.5" front for a DHRII 2.6" and couldn't be happier. Coming from CO everyone has a DHF front. Now that I'm riding mostly Northwest Arkansas the rides are more flat but still aggressive and loose. The DHRII, Aggressor combo has made my 150/135 bike feel more efficient where I ride with little sacrifice on grip up front. Recommend.
