 Best downhill tyre on the market by far. Long wearing and superb grip! Adapt very well between different terrains as well! Also the front and rear specific tyres mean each is precisely tuned for its purpose! A must have for any All Mountain, Freeride or Downhill Rider!

 when its dry and hard pack these are the best tyres in the world. I've raced fort william on these on a rare sunny weekend and also did two weeks in whistler and they worked perfect and lasted well. If its muddy dont even bother as they soon become clogged up and it takes a jet washer to clear them again.

 this is a very very good tyre, i have never slipped out on it and i would trust it with my life, ive never had a puncture with it as mine is dual ply, the only annoying thing is i bought a 2.35 and it is more like a 2.0 or 2.1, i would recommend the 2.5/2.7 as 2.35 will look stupid.

 Maxxis 2011 Minion DHF - Downhill (MSRP $0) - 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.

 This tire is the best!! It grips amazingly and i run them front and rear and they work great! The only problems are that they ware out prity fast and are super expensive. Luckily i got 'em at calgary cycle for 65 bucks for both!

 The Minion DHF is one of the best tires for loose conditions. It rolls fast when you need it to and is very predictable when cornering. There is a reason why this tire is the most used tire on the world cup circuit. The main down side is the sticky rubber compound does not last a long time so cost is a definite con.

 Really a great tire! your just stuck to the ground and a great back tire if u want a ridged rear. cornering is amazing no slipping at all. you cant ask any more out of your tires

 One of the best all around DH/FR tires ever made; great cornering knobs as well as being very resistant to flats and as far as I've experienced easy to install.

 Just plain brilliant. Swapped from Big Betty's to these bad boys front and rear on my Voltage FR and the difference was staggering.

 Amazing tire, it can corner better than any other tire that i have ever tried. It even works well for climbing on slick rock.

 Wyjebana w kosmos. Bardzo dobra przyczepność dobrze trzyma w zakrętach. Chujowe opory toczenia na asfalcie, ale chuj z tym, to nie szosówka. Amen

 Great Tire. Good for any terrain. Cant go wrong with putting this on any bike and then demanding it to grab when nothing else would.
