Thanks to its tread design, the Maxxis Minion DHR II is the ideal tire for aggressive gravity riding. With the side lugs of the legendary DHF, which have been slightly widened for even better cornering grip, it has extreme cornering grip. The center lugs have beveled lugs for better acceleration. Notches on the lugs improve transition when turning into corners. Part of the center lugs have a paddle shape, they dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.
The most popular compound from Maxxis, that many downhill athletes are trust in is called 3C MaxxGrip. 3C MaxxGrip offers the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
Tubeless tires have many advantages: You can ride with less air pressure. This gives you better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube, the risk of punctures is also reduced. MAXXIS TR tires are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other "Tubeless Ready" tires. The bead of the TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer, just like a real UST tubeless tire. This means that tubeless mounting on all rims with standard dimensions is already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid.
Doubledown tires are built like Maxxis downhill tires: two carcass plies reinforced with a butyl insert in the sidewall. Due to two 120 TPI (instead of 60TPI) carcass plies and aramid bead, however, they are significantly lighter than the Maxxis downhill tires, much more stable and robust than the Maxxis TR + EXO tires and thus ideal for hard enduro courses.
These tires are optimized for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work perfectly on all rims with an inner dimension of 30-39 mm.
