Get Rowdy With The Best Rear-Specific Trail Tire In The Biz

The well-loved Minion DHF needed a rear-specific counterpart, offering up the Minion DHR II 3C/EXO/TR 29er. It's constructed to improve acceleration and provide additional support. But, that's not all that improves the speed and nimble handling we've come to expect from Maxxis tires. Ramped and siped tread rolls fast and digs in under braking, along with strategically placed knobs that decorate the center tread.

Cornering, thankfully, becomes a breeze and that added traction inspires confidence on our rides. Further grip comes from running tubeless tires at a lower pressure so we can ride loose surfaces and rainy days without issue. Maxxis' EXO casing guards against punctures and potholes and Dual Compound rubber keeps faster roller in straight lines with less resistance, increasing control while we're riding trails or downhill laps..

The Maxxis Minion DHR II 3C/EXO/TR 29 is available in 29 x 2.3 Inch (61-622 ISO). For 29" rims with inner diameters 30mm - 35mm, the Wide Trail 29 x 2.4 inch (58-662 ISO) size is for you Also available in 27.5 x 2.3 inch (60-584 ISO).


  • 29 x 2.3" folding bead rear-specific MTB tire
  • The right tire for loose to medium, wet and dry trails
  • Burly alternating L-shaped and siped corner tread maximizes rear support when leaned over
  • Ramped and siped tread track straight under braking
  • Paddle-like knobs are optimally placed on the center tread for control
  • EXO casing protects from punctures and debris
  • 60 TPI
  • Weight: 858g (3C MaxxTerra)

The treads do dig in, but the sidewalls are a bit thin

I do like the grip, but the rear tire tore right at the sidewall bead after only a few rides :-( I tried adding a tube patch on the inside, but no luck. The 1/4-3/8" rip was too big for sealant to plug. Granted the hard rock trails here are pretty tough on sidewalls and rims, could have been just bad luck.

Great tires!

Really great, grippy tires. DHF and DHR both. Not the greatest rolling, but what downhill tire is? On about my 10th set of these. I just wish they would be less expensive ($75tire is what you can pay for some car tires, with 10x the amount of rubber, steel and nylon!). But it's still my only tire of choice for my Yeti SB5.5 29er running tubeless. Cheers!

great front tire, lots of grip
by Anonymous

At first i tried this on the back, it had lots of grip, but had way too much rolling resistence. I swapped it to the front and put an agressor on the back, and it may not be a super fast combination, but it rolls nice and hooks in all conditions. when i need to replace the dhr2 i may go to the dhf for the front just to try. but the dhr works great in front.

Great front tire

I use this DHR II 2.3 29 as a front tire on my aggressive trail bike. I have the Rekon 2.25 and Ikon 2.35 for the rear. Excellent setup, the fast rear tire lets you get up to speed, but more importantly the front DHR II helps with braking at high speed.
