Minion FBR Tyre Test Results
Look to professional opinions on fat bike cycle tyres.
Fat-Bike.com tested the Minion FBF/FBR:
“Both of our sets of test tires were run tubeless with remarkably easy set-up. We’ve been using Stan’s Sealant exclusively for the last few months with great results. We incurred no flats and no weeping has happened during our ninety-day test. I think it’s going to be interesting to see how 27.5 x 3.8 performs over the 2018 winter race scene. Last year’s Arrowhead was won on low-fat wheels and I predict that won’t be the last big race that’s won aboard a bike with a set of low-fat wheels. Most of our testing took place before the snow flew, so if you’re riding a set of these tires, please let us know how they handle deeper snow. We’ve gotten snow, but we keep melting back to where this is one of those winters where we’re not piling it up very deep. I think that this set of tires would totally rip on the groomed track at the fat-bike birkie and I’m curious to see how much flotation they can provide in different snow depths and conditions.
Maxxis has done a really nice job with these bad mamma-jammas. I’m giving them 4.75 gnomes out of 5” – Gomez, Fat-Bike.com, January 2015
