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.

Once again great products, service and prices!
I even took out 1st place in my first race in 15 years! (In old farts class 🤣)
Thanks again to the team at MTB Direct.

Impressed

by

I heard these tyres were good. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away though.
It’s crazy how much better they are than my last set of tyres.

I ran these for a weekend of downhill at Thredbo and I’m suitably impressed by their performance. Oodles of grip through the corners and berms. They even feel alright on the tarmac.

These are my new go to tyre

Best rear tyres

by

Best rear tyre out there, never fails and heaps of grip in most terrain.

Tons of grip, wears fast

by

Maxx grip does what it says on the tin, tons of grip, wears pretty fast. I eat these pretty quick at a bike park, but for slower tech riding it's fantastic.

Benchmark rear tyre

by

Benchmark rear tyre for hard charging when every bit of grip counts

Best real mtb in 24 inch

by

This is the best real mtb rear for 24 inch wheels. High grip, fast rolling, highly recommended.
