Minions, do my bidding
Originally designed for DH, the Minion DHF's tread pattern has been around for years because it works. Now available in this 27.5 x 2.6 inch version, those using the middle of the road tire size can benefit from the incredible grip offered by the DHF. Whether cornering or ripping down a straight, and regardless if you're rolling through mud, loose conditions, or hard pack, these tires will keep the bike under you.
Made using Maxxis's Max Terra rubber compound, the Minion DHF is tacky but not so soft that it sacrifices rolling speed. The EXO casing helps protect from punctures, and the DHF is fully tubeless ready.
The Minion DHF 27.5 Inch MTB Tire measures 27.5 x 2.6 inches (60-6584 ISO). Black. 120 TPI. 925 grams.

After years and years of 1.9 to 2.3 tires, I have been trying the wider tire/ wider rim. These are relatively light for their size and tread pattern. So am I, so I have little trouble with the durability of the Maxxis light weight EXO casings. They perform much like the narrower versions but provide a welcome bit of extra bit cush at lower air pressures on my shortish travel Santa Cruz 5010. At first they feel a bit less precise than the narrower versions, but I have adapted.
Use this tire on Pivot Mach 5.5 in the front. Ride mostly front range in Denver CO and recently in Moab, Slick Rock and Porcupine. Just a great all purpose tire that I don't think about, it holds in every corner....trust this one!
I've run a much more rounded balloon style small knobby tire the past 2 years that worked great on dry and slick rock (Sedona, etc.). These new tires are more suited to the typical NW trail with a variety of damp, wet, rooty and dry. Will especially appreciated the traction on short steep uphills and cornering.
