Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR

Wide is in and unless you are a gram-counting, leg-shaving XC devotee, a larger tire makes the ride so much better. Maxxis is bringing their ever popular Minion DHR II to the wide party, but instead of simply making it girthier, t features a tweaked tread pattern that's designed to offer better grip when mounted on wider (30-35mm internal) rims. The Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR 29-inch will transform your bike into an all-mountain trail shredder.

Since a wider rim will splay the tread further apart, Maxxis learned that by slightly changing the location and orientation of the knobs, it could better align cornering forces directly into the edge knobs, even at smaller lean angles. So you'll get the renowned traction that you have come to expect from the Minion DHR II and you can heel it way over in turns without losing cornering confidence or have a vague, breakaway feeling on with your wide rims.

The tread isn't the only part of the Minion DHR II WT designed to improve traction. It's tubeless ready, a given, so you can run lower pressure to improve grip, and comes with Dual Compound rubber so it is faster rolling in straight lines with less resistance and will hook up with aplomb when leaned over.

Maxxis' EXO casing, which is supple and prevents the dreaded walk out by warding off slices from pointy rocks sharp-edged ax heads common on trails found in Moab and Sedona. The DHR II is also competent on loose and loose over hard surfaces that are tricky for many tires to find traction.

  • A version of the DHR II optimized for wide rims
  • Unified center lugs provide excellent braking traction
  • Excels across loose-over-hard, medium, and loose trails
  • EXO sidewall protection for less flats
  • Item #MXX006M

Great tire

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Came stock on my Pivot Trail 429 . I'm used to riding an XC bike and rode Vittoria Mezcal/AKA/Saguaro for a long time...I'm getting used to a bigger, burlier bike/tire and slowly testing the limits of cornering...seems like these will do the trick. Super stable and tough tire, rolls well at about 18 psi.

Maxxis Minion DHF EXO

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

Came stock on my Yeti SB 100 from CS. Much heavier than hoped. Feels like running in a pair of mud boots instead of trail shoes. Great on corners and in mud with a lot of grip. Still, just too heavy. Feels like plodding, not riding. Switching out for Nobby Nic.

Works up front

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this tire for the front in the 2.4 WT size paired with a Rekon out back. I chose this over the DHF WT to save around 100 grams and it's been a great front tire; I only wish it was a little larger. In overall volume I don't think it is any wider than the DHR 2.3 (the casing) it just has a wider tread pattern. I've mostly used it on hard pack and loose over hard conditions and it rails- The tire weighs 960g on my digital scale, so a lot closer to the claimed weight than CC is stating...

This is the tire which all others are measured to for a reason. You can't go wrong. Rolls fast and corners well.

The Most Traction

I use this rear tire on every one of my builds. Plenty of traction and never disappoints.

Ideal rear tire

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The 2.4 width is the ideal width for a rear tire, offering tons of traction while climbing and braking. The durable side wall has held up great all season set up tubeless! I would recommend this when looking to upgrade your rear tire, combine it with a 2.5 DHF for the ultimate enduro setup.

My two cents

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a great tire, no doubt about it. I originally bought this tire for a trip to Whistler but also found it handy when riding in Moab. I bought a new bike this year and this tire came on the front and back and I have to admit it handles pretty well up front too. When the front tire wears out I will probably replace it with a DHF as the side knobs hold better in loose corners. When riding buff trails I sometimes wish for a better rolling tire, like the Aggressor, but overall its a great tire that will always have a place in my garage.

The side knobs are exactly the same between the DHF and DHR2 and the DHR2 is lighter.

Great Rear Tire!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have used many rear tires, I tend to go through them quickly. The last tire I used before this was the Aggressor. I'd say this is equally grippy and confidence inspiring. This is the first DHR II I've used, and I love it. The wide trail version is great for rims with an inner width around 30mm or larger. I'd highly recommend this tire for a rear.

Hey Ryan...trying to decide between the DHR II (2.4) and the Aggressor (2.3 or 2.5) for a rear tire for riding here in Vermont. Trails are a mixed bag for conditions, but typically rocky/rooty/buffed/loose with lots of climbing. It sounds like the Aggressor's going to be a bit faster and the DHR II a bit better cornering and braking...any other thoughts here to help me decide? Thanks!

I loveee this tire. Paired with stans you can run it nice and low and have fast reliable traction! Roost berms, conquer tech sections, rip though mud, and climb hard.
