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.
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.
