Maxxis Minion DHF EXO Tubeless Ready 26" Tire
The erratic ways of all-mountain, and shall we say, "Enduro," riding calls for an aggressive tire that delivers both speed and precision. The Maxxis Minion DHF EXO Tire does just that. The directional, ramped knob design reduces rolling resistance, saving energy on the climb for the more important plunge. Once you've grinded out the ascent and earned the descent, the Minion DHF unleashes its channel-cut knobs to enhance grip, providing straighter lines and more confidence in the corners. The EXO protection is a densely woven, lightweight, and highly flexible fabric that offers excellent sidewall protection, preventing cuts or abrasions in rock gardens or rooted trail areas. Of course, what would the credibility of a progressive mountain tire be without a tubeless ready setup? The tubeless ready Minion DHF uses a standard casing that requires the use of a liquid sealant for an airtight interface, delivering benefits of a UST tubeless tire without sacrificing weight. Everything sought out in a trustworthy all-mountain fun-machine or Enduro crushing tire can be found in the Maxxis Minion DHF EXO.

Turns that I used to brake ahead of so that my back tire didn't fishtail are now easily cornered with the Minions. Are they heavy? Yes. Do they slow me down? Not really. In fact, that extra traction helps to propel my bike uphill on climbs. The extra weight (about 200g more per tire) is worth the confidence of knowing that my tires are going to grip when I lean into a turn.
I rode these tires on incredibly dry, dusty trails, and they performed incredibly well. I cannot wait until the trails are a little more tacky, because these tires will grip like Velcro.
Disclaimer: I do not race mountain bikes. I ride mountain bikes for fun, though I do like to push myself to climb hard and descend quickly. If you want a race tire, this one is not it. If you want a tire that will handle anything that comes up on the trail, your tire has arrived.
