Maxxis Minion DHR II Tyre

Excellent braking and cornering traction all year round from this popular Maxxis tyre

Recommended Use: All Mountain/Trail Enduro Downhill


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Minion DHR II is available in range if different casings and compounds, from the popular intermediate EXO for the casing with the durable and long lasting Dual Compound or 3C Triple compound options, right through to all out gravity inspired downhill casings with the soft 3C Maxx Grip and Super Tacky compounds.

What is the intended use?

The DHR II is a multi-discipline tyre, seen on some of the fastest bikes on the World Cup Downhill Circuit. But still suitable for big Enduro days and mid-week local laps with friends, with its ramped centre knobs designed for speed and acceleration, teamed with its aggressive tread pattern for excellent cornering and braking traction, the DHR II is arguably one of the most versatile models for mixed conditions and all year round riding.

Our verdict

This is in our opinion, one of the best tyres in the Maxxis range. You can ride it on your trail bike or your downhill bike, and find the same consistency and grip no matter what conditions you end up in. Designed as a rear but equally as effective up front, this tubeless ready rubber is equipped to deal with anything you throw at it.

Details & Technology

Casing (choose from the following)

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

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

  • Super Tacky

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

  • 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
