With all new tread pattern, Minion DHR II is the ideal tyre for aggressive gravity driving. With the side studs of the legendary DHF which are slightly widened for better cornering grip, this Minion DHR II has extreme cornering grip. The centre studs have tapered lugs for better acceleration. Notches on the studs improve the transition when turning into corners. Some of the centre studs have a paddle shape, they dig in when braking hard and help to keep the bike under control.
WIDE TRAIL CASING
The Wide Trail (WT) construction optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and get a too square shape on wide rims, resulting in less than optimal performance. WT tires are optimized for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work excellently on all rims with an inner dimension between 30 and 39 mm.
Doubledown tyres are constructed like their downhill tyres: two carcass plies reinforced with a butyl insert in the sidewall. However, thanks to two 120 TPI (instead of 60TPI) carcass plies and aramid beads, they are much lighter than our downhill tyres, much more stable and robust than our TR + EXO tyres and therefore ideal for hard Enduro courses.
3C MAXX GRIP
The well-known 3C downhill compound, which many of the best downhillers have trusted for years, is now called 3C MaxxGrip. 3C MaxxGrip provides the ultimate grip and cushioning for unparalleled downhill traction.
