With huge air volume and UST compatibility, the Minion DH from Maxxis sucks up bumps like nobodys business. It was engineered to meet the demands of UCI world cup downhill racers. 42A super tacky compound offers enhanced surface traction (thanks to a softer rubber compound) and is recommended for race use only. It excels on hardpack, loose-over-hardpack, and medium soil conditions.

Foldable Aramid bead lightens the load without sacrificing strength. Choose front or rear specific tread.

Type: Front or Rear
Weight: 1125 grams

            • Who knows Didn't use it

            Comments about Maxxis Minion DH UST Tire:

            Tried to mount the UST minion on some tubeless rims and the bead did not want to seat and ended up blowing apart. Now the tire is useless and I didn't even get to ride it!
            Manufacturer defect or poor quality?

            Pros

            • Great traction
            • Solid Side Walls

              Best Uses

                Comments about Maxxis Minion DH UST Tire:

                This is my favorite tire. A totaly worn out super tacky Minion on the front will rail better than most tires that are brand new. The side walls are good enough to take all kinds of rock garden abuse. I quit shopping and only buy this tire now.

                    If you downhill you will bank. On a bank the more tire you have on the ground the better your handling. Downhill you need less gears but more brakes and rubber.

                        I've had this tire on the front of my 575 for the few years. While it's a legit DH tire, I think it's a perfect all-mountain / XC tire for longer travel bikes. Never had it wash out, so far, and it seems to excel in dry or wet conditions.

                        These tires are the only tires I run because of two reasons. 1) They are the only UST tire I can find in the size I run that doesn't weigh a metric ton. 2) The dry weather traction is exceptional.
