The Minion DHR 2 is a complete redesign, with acceleration, cornering and braking all improved.

The shoulder knobs were borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF and then beefed up to handle duty as a rear tyre. They are also packed a bit closer together than on the Minion DHF. This helps to disperse the load whilst braking over more knobs, and improve longevity. The centre tread has been heavily ramped and siped to roll fast and track straight under braking. The big, paddle-shaped centre knobs also last remarkably well under hard braking.

Whilst the Minion DHR2 was designed as a rear specific tyre, it works very well on the front too, particularly on harder terrain.

For a great trail tyre combo, run a Minion DHR 2 on the front, with an Ardent or a 2.35" version of the Ikon on the back.

For a more heavy duty enduro set up, your can run Minion DHR 2's front and rear. If you want to just run the DHR 2 on the front then you can team it up with either an AggressorDissector or Minion Semi Slick on the back. If you want to run the DHR 2 on the back, then look to pair it up with either a Maxxis Highroller 2 or a Minion DHF up front.

Please note:

  • Skinwall/Dark Tan Wall tyres: Maxxis has made a running change to replace all Skinwall tyres with the Dark Tan sidewalls. During the transition phase, there is a chance that stock from our suppliers may contain a mixture of both sidewall types so you may receive a shade that is different from what you expect. If this does happen please get in touch and we'll do our best to get you sorted with the option you'd prefer ASAP!
  • 'WT' stands for Wide Trail. These tyres were designed around use with 35mm internal rims. However, riders utilising narrower rims (ourselves included) have still found them to perform exceptionally. If your rims are narrower than 24mm internal, you may find them to roll and squirm under hard cornering. Minion DHR 2.8" and 3.0" tyres don't have the WT designation as they are designed to run on 35mm internal rims at a minimum.
  • Wire bead tyres are sent rolled up to minimise shipping costs. The wires in the beads shouldn't get bent during this process, however, if they arrive with a bend, just bend them back til they are straight. It won't affect the performance of the tyre at all.

Awesome tyre upgrade

by -

Awesome tyres for the upgrade to my son’s bike. He loves MTB Direct, keeps checking the site to see what he can get next! Looks like a new helmet, gloves and jersey to hit the trails over Christmas :)

Top Tyre

by

Brilliant tyre. Great grip especially on those steep loose rock inclines.

Great braking and grip which is important when you're a big unit !!

by

My Go-To rear tyre since .. forever. Great braking and grip which is important when you're a big unit !!

Generally speaking, I ride the MAXXTERRA, they take a lot of punishment and give pretty good tyre life, unlike Schwalbe where the side knobs will start tearing after a few rides.

DHR 2

by

Was running an Aggressor on the rear which I was pretty happy with except there was a noticeable reduction in braking grip from the Hans Dampf I had been running. The DHR 2 certainly improved the braking traction, I'd say climbing and cornering seem pretty similar where I ride on loose over hard/dusty around Brisbane. The DHR is certainly noisy and slow if you have to travel a bit of sealed road etc. to get to the trails but doesn't seem too bad in soft/loose stuff compared to the Aggressor. I like both tyres but if you ride on marbles fairly often and want more predictable braking especially descents/tight corners the DHR 2 is your tyre.

The only rear tyre you need!

by

I’ve been riding bikes since I can remember and I always knew a good tyre can make a really big difference in your ride feel. As soon as I rode this minion dhr I could feel soo much grip and much more confidence riding with this on the rear end of my hardtail. Would totally recommend!!!

Minion DHR2 just keeps on rolling

by -

Predictable. Great grip in all conditions. Confidence inspiring.
