Minion DHF 3C/EXO/TR Tire

It's no secret that the industry is rapidly evolving, with wheel standards becoming increasingly wider for greater support and stability, especially across the rough stuff. Ideal for an internal rim width of 30 to 35 millimeters, Maxxis developed a line of Wide Trail Tires with a subtle redesign in knob profile for superb cornering grip at smaller lean angles and predictable traction when you're running a wider rim. It retains the notable characteristics of the original Minion DHF, namely the ramped center knobs for lower rolling resistance and straight-line control, combined with channel-cut gripping edges for cornering precision.

Another benefit of its voluminous 2.6 width is that you can run a drastically lower pressure for unrelenting grip and supple bump compliance when you're smashing across trail rubble and rock gardens. Since it's not a plus-size tire, the 2.6-inch volume doesn't come with a drastic weight penalty, so you won't feel like you're pedaling along with a lumbering behemoth of a tire. EXO protection reinforces the sidewalls from slashes and abrasion when you're ripping across formidable stretches of roots and rocks.

This particular DHF comes with Maxxis' 3C Max Terra compound, which is comprised of a harder base layer with progressively softer rubber on top for tacky grip and control, especially in slippery trail conditions. Seeing it's softer than dual-compound tires, you'll reap benefits in the grip department, albeit with a trade off in tread longevity and rolling resistance. We recommend setting it up in the front for heightened control without sacrificing much in durability or rolling resistance, which are both of greater concern on your rear tire.

Warped tire

I've put it through the wringer

Hope this never happens again, or I will never buy Maxxis again, or any tires from Backcountry anymore. It is literally painful to seat and unseat these tires, so when one is defective it is painful. Very painful. This experience has been painful. I bent and broke tire levers, including a brand new Silica lever (also from Backcountry), just during this painful process of installing, uninstalling and reinstalling the tire to confirm its defect. If the next tire fails, this review is going to 1 star.
