Description

Business down the centre - party on the sides! The Maxxis Minion Semi Slick is designed for dry conditions and maximum rolling efficiency, tip into a corner though, and the proven minion side lugs claw into the dust and hook up like a boss.

The Minion SS is perfect for those who have to earn their turns and pedal up to the top of their favourite descent. Heavy braking traction is somewhat sacrificed for exceptionally quick rolling speed. However, they do actually brake better than you'd expect.

Team it up with either a Maxxis Minion DHF, Minion DHR 2, or the Highroller 2 on the front.

 

Features:

- Semi Slick tread, very low profile centre knobs and Minion DHF side knobs.

- Perfect for dry conditions in hard to medium soils.

- Exceptional rolling speed

- Rear specific tread

Please note - 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.

Perfection looks like this….

Competitively priced and shipping as quick as a flash means leads time waiting for the postie and more time in the trails! - perfect transaction A+++

Perfect rear rubber for the loose stuff, great rolling and climbing too -

Cracking rear tyre

by

Cracking rear tyre!
I ride mostly trail/tech trail on mostly rock and sandy substrate (Sydney - RNP, Helensburgh, Kentlyn. Bike 2018 Norco Sight carbon 29.
Recently switched from heavier Maxxis Tyres.
I’ve really noticed how the tyre spins up nicely, is supper grippy in the corners, and just generally feels nimble.

Does exactly what it's meant to do.

I was running this on the the rear matched with Highroller 2 on the front. Great tyre, if I had to criticise it, it would that the middle of the tyre doesn't like going up hills on loose dirt and by loose I mean - very. The side walls will grip but apart from that, 5 star all round. I would suggest rear only, but if you're on the road and going slight off road then this tyre is for you.

Very Impressive Tyre

by -

Been using this tyre for quite a while now. It has great rolling resistance and hooks up well in corners. My riding style is similar to my motocross style where I do a lot of brake sliding into corners and this tyre hooks up well on the exit of a corner. The side walls are super tough, there have been countless times I reckon I should have ripped out a side wall on razor sharp rocks but it just keeps on hanging in there. I ride in some pretty harsh rocky trails and this tyre can take a beating. Very strangely though the trye I have pumps a lot of sealant out through the side wall but conversely this one of the best tyres I've ever had for going months without needing any air top ups. It just looks a bit messy on the side wall when the dust sticks to the sealant, all up a ****** good tyre that doesn't look like it needs replacing any time soon.

Swapped a Schwalbe Rock Razor

Swapped a Schwalbe Rock Razor stock tyre for this and am very happy with the increase in performance. Uphill straight line grip is great and it goes downhill round corners like its on rails. Surprisingly sticky compound, not that dissimilar to the Maxxis 3c maxx terra.

Best rear tire I have

by -

Best rear tire I have fitted to date. Fast rolling, good grip & excellent puncture protection. Sidewall is stiff, which helps direct feels on 29 wheels when charging hard into corners. There was not squishy feeling when turning under pressure in turns when compared to the light weight tires that came fitted on my bike.
