The Minion DHF is the standard by which all other downhill tires are measured. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Tire has great grip. Easy to install. Not too heavy for a 2.5". The rolling resistance is ok.
Love this tire. Excellent traction, my front hasn't slipped out once
This is one beefy tire. Great traction, EXO sidewalls are great here in the desert, we have a lot of pointy vegetation. 2.5 inch provides a great foot print and is stable in turns.
These tires hookup so good. I'm never gona ride any other tire. well worth the money.
Great grip for cornering. Much better traction on the turns than nevegal, nobby nic, and ignitor. These can also easily be setup tubeless with Stan's and have longer tread life than other schwalbe tires I've tried.
Got a 2.5 60a front and a 2.35 Supertacky in the back and they are great down here in texas. Works in all terrain, sand rocks, mud, wet/dry doesnt matter. also the performs well in the extreme heat.
Got DHF on the front and the back. Great traction. I recently went tubeless in the back(no tubeless rim) using stans; running 40lbs psi. Works great! I'm still using tubed in the front at 35lb psi.
My favorite tire for ~ 12 years running!
I asked my LBS to order me some tubeless capable, but NON-beaded DH tires a couple months ago, and instead they ordered me the steel-beaded DHF. While the thing weighs a freaking T-O-N, it's almost comical how well the thing fricken grips the ground. First time heading down a run that was the type with like sand thrown on top of blue-groove, I was getting smacked in the face with what I thought was thousands of gnats or other no-see-ums. Turns out these thing grip SO MUCH better than EVERY other tire I've ever run, the front was grabbing buckets-full 'O sand and tossing 'em up in the air, which my face was subsequently plowing through. The side knobs bite just as well. I miss(riding a 'new' bike with OE Specialized Butcher/Purg combo) throwing my bike into a turn(ANY turn), and worse-case the thing would slide -uber predictably- a little bit before hooking up and movin' out. You obviously pay for that level of traction in the form of them not being the fastest rollers. I'm giving them ALL the cookies however, 'cuz these things are in a different solar system than their competition with regards to what they're made to do, and therefore shouldn't be penalized because they wouldn't be the optimum choice for a weenie, errrr, uhhhhh, I mean Cross Country bike.
This is an excellent, durable tire. You can ride this as hard as you want and throw the worst rock gardens you can imagine at it and they don't cut or tear.
