The Minion FBR is a rear-specific fat bike tire designed for trail riding. It shares the look of the Minion DHR II, but is optimized for fat biking. The Minion FBR features proven side knobs for cornering traction and ramped, paddle knobs down the middle, minimizing rolling resistance and maximizing traction in all conditions.
Foldable beads also keep the tyre secured to the rim but are lighter weight and easily transported. The bead is made of spun aramid or Kevlar Fibers.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
Tubeless Tyres 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 Tyre; And Less Chance Of Flatting Since There Is No Tube. Liquid Sealants Should Only Be Used In The Following Types Of Tyres: Tubeless Road, Tubular, And Tubeless Ready. The Use Of Liquid.
Threads Per Inch (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tyre’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 tyre.
Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
