Get Rowdy With The Best Rear-Specific Trail Tire In The Biz
Maxxis' Minion DHR II 27.5 Inch MTB Tire is ready for duty on the back of your trail shredder.
Benefiting from a total redesign, the Minion DHR II sees improvements on many fronts. The shoulder knobs are beefed up versions of those found on the Minion DHF to be more at home on a rear tire, and the center tread's paddle design assists in braking and rolls smoothly. The 3C rubber compound is long wearing, while still providing ample grip and traction, and the DHR II is tubeless ready for a bit of weight savings and low tire pressures.
The Maxxis Minion DHR II 27.5 Inch is available in 27.5 x 2.3 Inch (60-584 ISO), or 29 x 2.3 inch (58-662 ISO). Optimized for use as a rear tire. Tubeless ready.

I had these on the front and rear of one of my bikes until the front was changed to a Highroller II. It rolls fast and great for climbing and all around use. I highly recommend it for any trail riding. Its like a security blanket. The Minion II's have not let me down at resorts like Mammoth Mountain CA or Big Bear CA.
I'll admit, this tire is heavy. I actually think it is the heaviest tire on the market... That said, in the variable terrain I ride in, this tire sticks tight, corners awesome, and my climbing has improved with it on the back - It is NOT a front tire. I had the High Roller II on back, and this is better - still have the HRII on the front now, and thinking of getting the Butcher Control next. And, even though it is heavy by over a pound more than most tires, I am sticking with the Minion on back... I ride high technical, from loose rock to rock gardens, and even climb up rock faxes... love this tire.
