    This sequel is better

    The Maxxis Minion DHR II 27.5-inch Tire improves upon the solid design of its predecessor to give you reliable performance on the toughest, most technical trails. The DHR II’s redesigned shoulder knobs offer a wider stance and better cornering than the original DHR, and the paddle-like knobs on the center tread improve breaking and provide better traction on loose ground. The center tread features ramped knobs for improved acceleration and sipes for smooth transitions. The Minion DHR II has 60tpi casing and is equipped with EXO sidewall protection technology, a semi-rigid fabric that is incorporated into the sidewall to prevent flats and abrasion.

    Very Grippy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Perfect tire for hard charging riders looking to get the most grip in loose terrain. Not the fastest rolling tire out there but if you value stopping speed and grip this might be the perfect tire for you!

    Fast

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Have been using this as a rear tire and am very impressed. Straight line braking power is the most impressive thing about this tire, it stops on a dime even in dry conditions. The tire also corners very well. The rolling speed is a bit slow compared to the high roller but I have found that once it wears in a little after 5+ rides the rolling speed improves slightly. I have no experience with this tire as a front but as a rear, its my favorite so far.

    All killer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My all time favorite tire. I've run this tire as both a front and a rear. It works fantastic in both applications. The rolling resistance is decent, and it is really hard to beat the weight of this tire for the amount of grip on hand.

    Grippy and Rippy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Absolutely love these tires! They grip it and rip it. They work great with a tubeless set up. A great tire is one of the best upgrades! Feels like new bike day all over again. Will continue to buy Minion's!

    Wobble

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Purchased this tire due to Maxxis reputation and tread. After installed and seated, the tire had a manufactured defect which resulted in a crazy wobble. Although this is not backcountrys fault, it still resulted in the loss of the tire before riding and time wasted finding a replacement last minute. Backcountry did however hop on with great customer service as usual and I am now waiting a week or so to see how the replace or refund will process goes.

    Hold tight and Ripp

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This tire is so grippy! I can absolutely tell an immediate difference when I hit the trail on this tire. Climbing felt easy with how well it gripped to the dirt, I felt no slip what so ever. Very durable and would highly recommend.

    Durable and Grippy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hands down the best tire for the riding I do. I have been running these for two summers now and outside of a blow out on the rear for a sharp rock that will remain nameless I have had nothing but high results from these tires. Great durability, about to replace, but after one full summer and the start of this year I am pretty amped on how long they have lasted.

    Grippiest rubber

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Maxxis Minions have the grippiest rubber and best traction. I feel confident carrying speed into turns. The tire is also quite durable. The tire comes tubeless ready and it was easy to set up on my own with a compressor. Would highly recommend.

    Best downhill tires

      I ride mostly downhill/gravity trails and these tires are the best for that. They are grippy, can handle anything, and will last you a while. I had mine for almost 1000 miles this season.

      My Favorite Tire!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I got these tires for my boyfriend and he loves them! "This tire have tons of traction both for climbing and DH. It brakes well too, when I tap on the breaks, its like dropping a boat anchor down. The slight draw back is it does have some rolling resistant, but not too bad at all. I gave up the rolling for the extra grip and assurance".

      Upgraded From Ardent

        My Bronson came with one of these in the front but an Ardent in the back. The Ardent was beginning to show wear after a couple years so I decided to spring for the upgrade and am psyched to roll into summer with lots of tread. I failed the tubeless setup without a compressor of my own but my local shop was able to quickly and cheaply do it for me. The picture seems to be missing some of the features that are listed in the style/size dropdown and that are on the actual tire I received.

        Grip it and rip it

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This tire (on a Santa Cruz Bronson) has performed superbly. Tubeless is definitely the way to go , and this tire has provided excellent traction in all sorts of conditions. Get out and ride!

        Love this tire

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This has been my favorite tire for the better part of a year now. The grip is great and the ability to set them up tubeless is another added advantage. Great Product!

        The Best.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is hands down the best tire I have ever used. I was pretty happy with my WTB Vigilante (front) and Continental Mountain King (rear) set up, until I put this guy on. It rolls better than those tires and I have more grip than I know what to do with. Tubeless set up was a breeze. I have no complaints.

        Love this tire

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Ive got this on the rear of both my bikes and love it. Very predictable and last pretty long too. Not tried it up front yet but heard its great for that too.

        Killer Tubeless Tire

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Great tire that can handle all trail conditions with no problem. We use these on most of our Santa Cruz demo's and they've held up most of the season with minimal wear!

        Keep the rubber on the dirt

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are what came on my Bronson complete build a few months back and have been performing great. I've had solid traction with them on the climbs and then loved them on the downhill at Deer Valley.

        I can corner pretty hard on them and not have them wash out. Only time I have issues is when the dirt is really soft/loose. So that is more a trail condition vs the tire.

        After I got a sheet rock screw in my tire I was able to pick from all the tires on the market to replace that rear tire but ultimately decided to stick with this one since it does so well in all conditions.

        I run these tubeless.

        Is this a 2.4 or 2.3?
        Dropdown says 2.3. Description says 2.4.

        Unanswered Question

        How does this compare to the HR II 3C? Seems the HR II has wider nob spacing.

        Is this the 800g ish trail tire or not?
        Thanks.

        Best Answer

        Andrew, sorry for the mix up! I work here at BC and had the same question since I wanted this tire for my Nomad. I wanted the lighter one (800ish grams as you say, not sure exactly) so I asked our bike components buyer what was up. He said this is indeed the lighter weight tire with the folding bead and our tech specs are wrong.



        We should be fixing those tech specs as soon as possible, but I ordered one last week and the tire I received was indeed the lighter weight folding bead option. Put it on my nomad and have been loving it.

        2.3 or 2.4? Tech spec says 2.4? Also TPI says 65 instead of 60 in the specs? Clarify please

        So this is the single-ply, 2.3" Trail version of the DHR II that Maxxis claims weighs in at 805g?

        If so, can Backco please update this page? There is a *big* difference in a 1300g soft-DH-compound tire & a general use trail tire that weighs in over a full pound less.
