A semi-slick center with reliable, knobby cornering
The Minion SS fills the space between a fast rolling XC tire and a tacky DH tire by utilizing a cluster of short, ramped knobs, accented by the much-loved Minion side knobs. This combination creates a fast-rolling tire with a square profile that locks you in on loose terrain. Perfect for the modern enduro circuit's long descents and longer climbs.

I've got about 50 trail miles on this tire and am really loving it. I had tried the specialized slaughter and wasn't too Impressed with the braking power, but this tire has convinced me that semi slicks can work. This tire feels slower rolling than the Slaughter but I am willing to give that up for the improved braking. I don't think I would use it in the wet or for an aggressive enduro race. But for dry, dusty conditions and more pedally Enduro's, this tire is great.
was riding Minions out in WA. Moved to Ft. Collins where I don't necessarily need all the big knobs. This tire works great for the front range. Quite a bit faster, good turning with the knobs on the sides and tough as hell.
I just installed this tire and it is much better than I expected. I primarily ride hard pack old train trail, and did a 20 miler yesterday. This tires rolling resistance is excellent and will give it a go on a single track trail next week. Running it tubeless. Replaced a Minion DHR on the rear.
Great rear tire, very fast rolling, very predictable grip and release. I was skeptical that it would hold up to enduro race riding, but so far so good. It's light enough and sealed up tubeless with a floor pump. Can't ask for much more than that!
Pretty solid option for someone who likes to run front and back minions but needs a faster rolling option as a back tire for smooth dry trails. You can expect similar cornering to the original minion when you lean into this tire, but if conditions are wet or greasy this thing will slide all over before trying to bite and it's pretty unpredictable. Then again wet and nasty conditions are not what this tire is made for so just ride something else for those days. As far as semi-slick tires go though, I wouldn't choose any other.
