The Minion DHF is the standard by which all other aggressive mountain 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.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
One compound throughout the tread optimized for longevity and performance.
A rigid metal wire is utilized as bead material in applications where ultimate strength is needed and transportability is not a factor.
3C Triple Compound - Mountain
Maxxis 3C Triple Compound Mountain Technology Uses A Harder, Longer Lasting Base Layer And Two Progressively Softer Top Layers In Order To
Optimize Traction And Stability. Maxxis Offers Three Different Configurations Of Our 3C Triple Compound Mountain Technology: Maxxspeed,
Maxxterra And Maxxgrip
A special low-rebound, high-traction compound used in select
An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.
3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
Tubeless Tires Provide The Rider With Many Benefits: The Ability To Run Lower Air Pressures, Which Improves Traction; Lower Rolling Resistance When Compared To A Tube-type Tire; And Less Chance Of Flatting Since There Is No Tube. Liquid Sealants Should Only Be Used In The Following Types Of Tires: Tubeless Road, Tubular, And Tubeless Ready. The Use Of Liquid.
DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
Our EXO+ construction combines two of our best puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%
Threads Per Inch (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’s casing. Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tire. Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
