    Details

    Ragin’ rubber.

    An ancient shredder once said “Going fast isn’t the main thing, it’s the only thing.” Wise words, and Maxxis took them to heart when it designed the (slightly) new Minion DHF Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR 27.5in Tire. The Minion DHF is made to rally, although despite its name, it’s not actually any wider than the classic Minion; it does, however, have an updated tread pattern that serves up more grip when mounted on wider rims without making you lay your rig on its side.

    It goes without saying that the Minion DHF can be run tubeless, which means lower PSI and more grip, and that it’s EXO casing can hammer down the fastest, sharpest trails without taking a killer hit. Two extra things to note: the Minion DHF is more comfortable on soggy trails while the DHR makes its living on hardpack, and the 3C Maxx Terra compound is softer and more DH-oriented than the fast-rolling Maxx Grip.

    Best Tires!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I run these tires tubeless on my Santa Cruz 5010 and absolutely love them. I'm not a fan of the 2.8 plus sized tires, but the 2.5 allows you to run lower pressure to smooth out the ride and increase grip all around (without losing too much speed). I have been nothing but satisfied in a variety of conditions!

    Love It

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Excellent tire.. wider is better. Great traction on hard turns and super stable. Confidence builder!! Also helps on the rocky uphill climb. Thickness of tires help from punctures from those nasty cacti in the desert.

    Get a Grip

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hands down the best front tire. The 2.5 inch width allows you to run lower pressure for additional grip and better control. I would recommend this tire for anyone looking for a reliable and confidence inspiring ride.

    New Go To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently switched to this tire from a High-Roller II and I couldn't be happier! This tire is a lot more burly and has tons of grip in the corners. It is a pretty big tire for climbing however, it still gets the job done! I plan on using this tire for most conditions.

    BURLY times!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Threw this tire on my ride and instantly noticed a major difference in the ride itself. This tire looks burly and it crushes on climbs and descents. Couldn't be happier!

    Freaking Amazing!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've worn out a couple sets of these now, and I just can't really come up with any negatives (based on how I ride). Sure they are not the fastest rolling tire out there, but I'm much more interested in not falling down, and these tires grip like nothing I've ever experienced. The DHR/DHF Combination is pretty hard to beat!

    STICKY ICKY!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is by far the best front I have tried to date. Running the maxgrip, and loving the rounder profile and tread pattern. The tacky grip is well worth the extra grams to me.

    Size Matters - Hahahahaha 2.5 hardly ; P

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So I was really concerned about this tire - 2.5 Huge!!!! Relax its more like a 2.35. So please do not worry it will fit on your non plus bike just fine. It is a lil smaller than my Magic Mary 2.35. I matched the DHF 2.5 (hahahahahha makes me laugh) with the Minion SS 2.3 on the back and it is a Much Cheaper version then the Magic Mary Rock Razor set up I had by $75. I am pleased so far if they hold up as well my smile will stay .

    sticky!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently built up my second bike with a DHF WT on the front. The grip is amazing and the durability can't be beat. The tread pattern is extremely versatile and will boost your confidence in all conditions. I would recommend this tire to all but the most weight sensitive riders.

    The Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the best tire. My favorite. No one makes a better tire than maxxis. But seriously. This is one of the best options out there for an aggressive rider. traction is unreal.

    Game Changer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Put this tire on the front of my Bronson 2.0 to replace the DHR that came on both wheels. Markedly improved my traction, decreased washing out on loose dirt/sand, holds far better on corners. Confidence booster! Have used in Tetons and in Moab/Fruita all with excellent results.

    Pretty close to perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Can we call this a classic yet? For as long as I can remember, the DHF has provided the best blend of traction, durability, and speed. Whether you ride DH, all mountain, trail, or even some aggressive XC, the DHF is going to give you what you need.

    Sticks like glue

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I haven't been on Maxxis tires in years, but oh my these are amazing. The WTB I came from are great in the CA conditions, but out here, I seemed to get flats every ride due to the thin sidewall. I picked these up and was blown away. Yes, I have used Maxxis in the past, but the wider tread with a wide carbon wheel, helps you feel like you are glued to the soil. Amazing tires, you won't regret picking up a pair

    Is it a bad idea to ride this large a tire on an i9 AM rim? I think it is 31mm outside, 26mm inside. Recommendations? I do like high volume tires, but I don't want it to be too wide for my rim.

    Hey Kendrick-



    You should shouldn't have an issue with the tire being too wide for your I9 wheel. Depending on where you plan on running the tire, you may want to check for clearance spec. (More so for your chain stays and bb)



    Let me know if you have any other questions. I would be happy to help.
