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.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewall of various MTB tyres. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. Therefore the performance of the tires remains convincingly good.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into one tread strip. Maxxis plans the arrangement of the compounds according to the desired properties of the tyres.
