Designed with direct input from downhill OG and all-round shredder Sam Hill, the Minion DHF was designed to tackle anything that the world cup downhill circuit could throw its way. From muddy, technical rocky descents to fast, loose, dry and dusty hardpack, this tyre does it all, with confidence Designed for aggressive riding, the Minion is enduro ready to bomb through a range of terrain and trail conditions, and in keeping with its namesake, loyally stick with you while you're navigating challenging lines.
The Minion's triple compound construction suits it to rugged, enduro rides. It relies on a firm, durable base layer topped by two progressively softer layers to keep the tires glued to the trail when conditions get slippery and loose. We like the way the softer layers pair with the mix of directionally ramped centre knobs and tall, channel-cut knobs along the sides to keep rolling resistance low on fast straightaways but grab quickly in tight corners. Between the dependable casing and the tubeless-ready construction, you can also count on the Minion to not bail if you hit an occasional rock or frequent rock gardens. With this mix of features, we'd count on this tire to barrel through it all without hesitation.
