With its Downhill pedigree, the Minion DHF Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR 29" MTB Tire will give traction in almost any environment. Originally designed for DH, the Minion DHF's tread pattern has been around for years because it works. This Wide Trail version is designed for wheels with a 30 - 35mm inner rim diameter, allowing those with wider rims to 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 3C 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 Wide Trail 29" 3C/EXO/TR MTB Tire measures 29 x 2.5 inches (61-622 ISO).
Also available in a 27.5" version. Black. 60 TPI. 1015 grams.

After riding Maxxis tires now for a couple of years, I have to say I've become a convert. Road the Aggressors last year, which were good, but wanted something a bit chunkier.
The DHF's are an awesome tire for our mixed conditions here in the Northeast, handling everything from wet rocks and roots, to loose to loose-over-hard terrain with ease. They climb and descend well, even at speed and rarely slip. Super robust, handling a beating in rock and root gardens without so much as a wimper. In the three months of riding I've done on these, - 1,000 miles, they still look like new - no cracks, tread wear, or anything. Mount very easily. And at Bike Tires prices, these are well worth the investment.
