Maxxis Minion Downhill UST Supertacky 26x2.5 Tire
Make the most out of gravity with Maxxis' Minion DHF Downhill UST. This burly tubeless tire incorporates ramped knobs for low-rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase straight-line control and provide rail-like cornering. And, the ultra-tough 2-ply casing and tubeless technology let you run super-low air pressure for outstanding traction without flatting.
These tires are great! I'm running both the DHF and DHR on the front and rears. These tires are super sticky and a uber soft compound. ONLY trade off is the softer compound. i think i'll burn through these within several rides on the DH park or rip the knobs off faster than hard compounds ive ridden on before. I used these with Stan's No Tubes and its the best and ONLY fix-a-flat type compound ive used that ACTUALLY works. Have to make sure the bead seats completely otherwise you'll spend hours trying to figure out why its leaking and trying to get the sealant to work.
Great performer! Poor life. Buy'em if they are cheap or if your rich and can afford to swap them out a lot. I blew through a rear tire in one day racing. I have had others last as long as 3 weeks.
This tire definitely lives up to its name of being supertacky. It does amazing in about every terrain I've ridden in. From loose and dusty to pouring rain.
