Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best tyre...end of
Run these as tubeless cause LUST not up to job.Maybe be not as wide as some but that is their strength because they still grip like mad without being too draggy.Got a shed full of tried and tested tyres, these are now the only tyres I use ... 2.35 on 6'' bike 2.5 on DH rig.Industructable ...love em!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Minion DHR 60A 2.35"
Got this to run on the back of my Transition Blindside when it is too wet for the High Roller. Good grip, but as these come up a little thinner than the HR's, you notice that there is less grip as you lean over if you are running the same tyre size. I will be putting this on the rear of my trail bike for the summer (if we get one). Would buy again, but would get the 2.5".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awsome Tyre
I have been using High rollers on the rear of my Kona hardtail for about 5 years and when my last one wore out a few weeks ago the Minion was recommended by a friend. I also read mostly good reviews so decided to give it a go.
Just come back from my first XC outing today and all I can say is AWSOME! I chose the Dual Ply 2.35 60a (inflated mine to 42psi) for the rear on Mavic XC 717 rim as I do mostly cross country and not too much technical stuff but some DH and still ride hard enough. My local trail has it all, loose gravel and stone over hard pack, muddy clay, loose rock and some roots too. The Minion handled every surface superbly so much so that it gave me much more confidence to stay off the brakes and lean right into every turn which considering I am still riding with a fractured shoulder speaks volumes!
The High Roller used to slide out a bit before grabbing on the outer knobs but not so with the Minion. This baby hangs in from the moment you commit to the corner and stays in the turn. I was blown away at how much better and quicker the ride felt today. Admittedly the High Rollers were wearing down but the Minions just felt better all round for me. They seemed to roll faster than my old High Rollers too on almost all the surfaces, braking was good and uphill grip was great (ironic considering they are labelled as downhill tyres!)
Bottom line is these tyres really made an immediate positive impact to the way my ride felt and the control was brilliant - a great tyre for the rear and would recommend to anyone doing cross country and DH on varied terrain. Will review again in Summer conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
Swapped out my softer Minion DH tire for the 60A version as I will save them for the bike park. The 60A version does a great job on my local trails. Hooks up great on loose dirt and very stable. More you lean into them and apply more pressure, the more they bite. Have not tested it on mud yet. But definitely will be picking up another when it comes time for a replacement. I am also running this up type of tire up front (DH F).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Ce pneu est bien pour les débutants mais une fois arrivé à un niveau (même moyen) ce Maxxis ne veux plus rien savoir ! Aucunes adhérence dans le virage ni dans les devers externes ..
Avis partagé par plus de la moitié des pilotes de la team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous A classic
A great tyre, often overlooked in favour of the high roller (or Minion fronts), these are better when you need more braking, eg for more technical DH trails. The flip side is that they roll slower, but the confidence they give on steep, evil trails or north shore is worth it. I run these all over the UK and Canada at 28psi and have never pinch flatted and have run them down to 20psi, but dented too many rims. In the wet the super tackys (40a?) rock, but hella slow if you want to pedal anywhere. 60a more versatile.
