 these tires are mad they are heaps better than kenda nevegals and the ride is a lot smoother. they are alot stronger too and are better value for money. when i had my nevegals i popped two tubes in one day. one by going up a gutter and the other by going off a piss easy drop

 These tyres, although some consider to be over-used by the masses, not necessarily knowing or caring what tyres are on their bike...are very, very good all round dh tyres. They over great grip, in the most extreme weather conditions.. and give the rider a great amount of confidence in the speeds possible to go, whilst maintaining grip. They are not so gripy that they are inefficient in allowing the rider to carry speed..and not so smooth that washing out is inevitable..they are just perfect. I use these most if not all year round, give or take atleast once a week in the winter and upto four times in the summer and they are great and have lasted a good 9 months so far, with not alot of tread wear, through some awfulo conditions and the generally crap engish weather of autumn/ winter. Rant over, basically i would recommend these good value, effective tyres.

 Works great as a front or rear tire, but pairing with the DHF in the front is a dream combo. Lasted almost as long as my front tire, speaking volumes about it's durability. The performance of this tire is equally as awesome, serving as an awesome climbing tire as well as a hooking up when you need it to. Not really a good XC tire, but it wasn't meant to be one.

 best tire I had, get the Triple Compound, it's stick on anything in any conditions and it last longer or the Super Tacky for even more grip but melt like butter. or you can get the 60a version but, for my riding conditions(wet rocks and roots), it slip too much. It can take hard hit without flating out.
I bought a 3C DHF/DHR set at the beginning of last year and I just change the DHR today...1 1/2 year for a rear tire is the best I could get out of a sticky tire. The DHF will go trought the all 2nd year with no doubt.

 Great tire especially the sticky ones, if you ride a lot more street here and there they have a 60a like a holy rollers which are a lot more hard so they don't wear down as fast. I ride these and the holy rollers. I'll never ride anything else but Maxxis on my bikes.

 never popped since I've had it and i was at Panorama, Whistler, Mt.Washington. So, its the best tire ever. But i did get unlucky at Mt.Washington and had the side wall hit but it has a very good sidewall and have still used the tire since and its held its air the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Where to start? I got the 60a and they work an absolute treat in pretty mucha ll conditions, I rarely slide out in wet and I rarely loose grip in dry, and the rolling resistance is excellent compared Kenda and WTB knoblys!!

 This tire lasted me a long time without the tread wearing and took corners great. I almost never slid out at high speed. The only con about this tire is that its so damn expensive!

 Brilliant tyre, have the 2.7 tyre on the front of My Orange 222, great product - get it! Maxxis are definitely the leaders in tyre manufacturing, and this is no exception... Classic tyre, will stick by it and Highrollers

 I use these tires (Minion F and Minion R) for local freeride in 2.5 and single ply. Way better grip than my Continental Diesel in dry as well as wet conditions. They weigh about 850g and i never had a flat one till now.

 love this tire, it'll take anything, it lasts forever too! It handles great in wet, dry, mud and snow, kind of tricky to take off rim if you
don't have the right tools.

 the 3C's are my tire of choice. They are tacky, and can withstand some incredible impacts without going flat. Worth the extra money.

 grip is amazing, i never feel the rear slipping through a berm with this tyre on, it's usually the front that washes out 1st!

 Gold standard in tires as far as I'm concerned. Durable (unless its the 40a version) and grippy regardless of conditions.
