Maxxis Minion DHF Tyre

Popular and reliable tyre for grip and control in loose, muddy downhill conditions

Recommended Use: All Mountain/Trail Enduro Downhill


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Minion DHF comes in a broad range of casings and compounds mainly tailored towards the gravity side of mountain biking. Choose from the popular intermediate EXO casing, EXO + for that little bit extra protection, or Double Down and Downhill for the really rough stuff. The choice of compounds include Single Compound, the long-lasting Dual Compound, the ‘grippy yet durable’ 3C Maxx Terra or the all out downhill grip 3C Maxx Grip and Super Tacky offerings.

What is the intended use?

The DHF has been in the Maxxis range as a dependable performance downhill tyre for years. However, in recent times we are seeing this more on trail and enduro bikes with its lightweight construction, tubeless ready technology and aggressive tread pattern.

Our verdict

Depite being originally designed as a front downhill tyre, the Minion DHF has proven its versatility over the years applied to a range of riding disciplines and terrain with almost endless options of sizes, compounds and casings to suit your needs. In our opinion, the DHF is a true workhorse of the Maxxis range that can inspire confidence and provide consistency in most conditions.

Details & Technology

Casing (choose from the following)

  • EXO

    EXO casing is the most popular casing from Maxxis, and features a densely woven fabric which is flexible and lightweight to protect against cuts and punctures. This is recommended for trail riding, all mountain and occasional enduro

  • Double Down

    The Double Down casing has two 120 TPI layers with a reinforced butyl insert to provide support, and protection for enduro and some downhill riding, without the added weight of a full downhill casing

  • Downhill

    The Downhill casing from Maxxis is the ultimate in protection for aggressive enduro and downhill riding. It has a butyl insert in the side of the tyre for support when the going gets rough

  • EXO +

    The EXO+ casing has a layer of EXO protection with an additional layer inside of SilkShield which will help protect the entire tyre from punctures and tears

Compound (choose from the following)

  • 3C Maxx Terra

    Three different compounds (3C), harder at the base, softer at the edges and medium in the middle. Maxx Terra is an intermediate blend to roll fast but still give good supportive grip. Designed to be used across all mountain biking disciplines from XC to downhill

  • Dual Compound

    Designed for durability and long lasting performance. There are two rubber compounds, a harder one for low rolling resistance and a softer one for increased cornering grip

  • 3C Maxx Grip

    Three different compounds (3C), harder at the base, softer at the edges and medium in the middle. Maxx Grip uses the softest rubber for more of the tyre to prioritise grip and traction. Best used in downhill or steep trail riding where maintaining speed is not an issue

  • Super Tacky

    Designed for all out grip and rebound absorption with the softest rubber compound throughout the tyre. Ideal for downhill

  • Single Compound

    One rubber compound used throughout the tyre which is optimised for durability and performance
