Finally, Maxxis have released a mid-weight tubeless-ready version of their most popular tyres! If you wanted to go tubeless with Maxxis previously you’ve had to choose between either a heavier LUST tyre or risk running a non-tubeless tyre (which tended not to seal up as well).

The 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 center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!
