Probably the most driven and in recent years most successful downhill tyre in the world. The Minion DHF combines proven elements such as bevelled studs for low rolling resistance and smooth running with longitudinally slotted studs for more grippy edges. This gives it excellent directional stability and precise cornering behaviour. It is the reference for fast tracks, from light freeride to hard downhill.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. The arrangement of the compounds is planned according to the properties of the tyres.
The new EXO+ construction combines two of the best puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO.
The SilkShield layer surrounds the entire tyre from bead to bead, the EXO layer is mounted on the sidewalls. Tyres with EXO+ protection are designed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing, and especially for the higher torque and weight of E-MTBs.
Tubeless tyres have many advantages: You can drive with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no inner tube, the risk of a puncture also decreases. MAXXIS TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealing milk than other tubeless ready tyres. The bead of our TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tire. This means that the tubeless mounting of all standard rims is already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid.
The Wide Trail construction optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and are too angular on wide rims for optimal performance. All Maxxis WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but function perfectly on all rims with an inner diameter between 30 and 39 mm.
