Minion DHR II

    Minion DHR II

    • Trail
    • Enduro
    • Downhill
    With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.
    Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo! The Minion DHF is available in trail, enduro, and downhill specs.
    • Single, dual compound, 3C MaxxTerra, 3C MaxxGrip, or Super Tacky options
    • EXO, EXO+, DoubleDown (2×120 TPI), or Downhill (2×60 TPI) casing options
    • Wide Trail (WT) sizes optimized for 35mm inner width rims
    • Select specs are Tubeless Ready (TR), confirm in table below

    3C MaxxTerra

    An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.

    Diagram of Maxxis 3C MaxxTerra technology

    3C MaxxGrip

    3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.

    Diagram of Maxxis' 3C MaxxGrip technology

    EXO

    An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

    Diagram of Maxxis' EXO Protection

    EXO+

    Our EXO+ construction combines two of our best puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.

    Double Down (DD)

    DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.

    Tubeless Ready

    Tubeless Ready Maxxis Shorty bicycle tire.

    Wide Trail

    Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes the tire’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tires are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference.

    Maxxis Wide Trail XC tires are optimized for use with 30mm internal width rims, but they will perform well on rims as narrow as 25mm. Maxxis does not recommend rims wider than 30mm or narrower than 25mm

    Diagram of Maxxis' Wide Trail construction for trail, enduro, and downhill

    Downhill (DH)

    Two layers of casing material are used from bead to bead, providing additional protection and sidewall stiffness for downhill applications.

    Super Tacky (ST)

    Super Tacky (ST) is a special low-rebound, high-traction compound used in select mountain tires.
