Why We Like The Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR
For steep trails littered with jagged rocks and loose soil, few tires can match the traction and braking power of the Minion DHR II. The cornering knobs resemble those found on the DHF tire, only with a wider profile to dig in more quickly while cornering. The center treads are where this tire really shines to us, featuring paddle-like knobs that dig into even the steepest trails, perfect for bike park skidders and gnarly backcountry trails. This particular DHR II comes with EXO sidewall protection that's on the lightweight side of the options from Maxxis, yet still offers reinforced strength.

It always should be said to choose the proper tool for the job. With respect to traction in turns and on the damp, these tires are legit. I doubled up and ran DHR II both in the front and rear. Still getting a feel for it but so far I think it is just as good as a DHF/DHR combo. I push about 25psi/26psi front to rear (195lbs). I am notorious for being rough on tires and tend to slice side walls in the chunky stuff here in CO. I switched to Bontrager SE4 and they stood up well. So why come back to Maxxis and if you are rough on tires why go with a tan sidewall which is less durable... Because it will lighten things up weight wise,, but really because it looks dope as hell. I'm working on line choice this summer and sparing my bikes trauma. I'll look good while doing it.
