Refined and redesigned; ready to shred any line...This trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The centre tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and help to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the centre tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.
Technologies used in this tyre:
The 3C Triple Compound technology utilizes three distinct silica compounds in different locations within the tread of the tyre. The centre compound is optimized for exceptional treadwear and low rolling resistance. The progressively softer shoulder compounds provide increased grip while cornering. Choose a Triple Compound Maxxis tyre for the ultimate in tyre handling in all conditions.
MAXX TERRA technology is an intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C Maxx Terra is softer and offers more traction than 3C Maxx Speed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than Maxx Grip.
DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tyre casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tyre but in a lighter package.
