A loyal trail companion.
Tackle muddy, technical rocky descents with confidence on the burly Maxxis Minion DHF 29in tire. Designed for aggressive riding, the Minion is enduro bred to bomb through a range of terrain and trail conditions, and in keeping with its namesake, loyally stick with you while you're navigating challenging lines.
The Minion's triple compound construction suits it to rugged, enduro rides. It relies on a firm, durable base layer topped by two progressively softer layers to keep the tires glued to the trail when conditions get slippery and loose. We like the way the softer layers pair with the mix of directionally ramped center knobs and tall, channel-cut knobs along the sides to keep rolling resistance low on fast straightaways but grab quickly in tight corners.
Between the dependable 60 TPI casing and the tubeless-ready construction, you can also count on the Minion to not bail if you hit an occasional rock or frequent rock gardens. With this mix of features, whether you're riding through mud, loose dirt, or any messy mix of conditions, we'd count on this tire to barrel through it all without hesitation.

I needed the right tires for a bike trip to hood River Oregon. These tires handled everything from post canyon, mount st Helens, Sandy ridge and trail 44. Never falling short or wanting for more these tires rocked! Highly recommend and would buy again.

These wheels are the best for cornering and harsh terrain in all weather conditions and tracks. Maxxis for life!!!
DHF & DHR - a match made in paradise
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
When I first started biking I only rode Vittoria tires (formerly known as Geax Tires). On my new SC Hightower I decided to check out Maxxis and so stoked that I did!
The tread pattern and the burly knobs on the shoulder of the tire make for a perfect tire that can climb, rail corners, roll over anything and slay that "brown pow." My only complaint (if any) is the rolling resistance on these. Due to being a burlier tire meant for enduro riding they are definitely a heavier tire. If you are looking for something more "XC" the ardents and/or Ikon's are a great choice as well.
Paired with my DHR and a Minion SS (as the next tire) these are a perfect combo. For the riding in Park City that can get a little loose and technical, these tires freaking kill it!
