Proven, successful and popular: the Minion DHF folding tyre by Maxxis
Probably the most driven and in recent years most successful downhill tyre in the world. Proven elements such as bevelled lugs for low rolling resistance and smooth running were combined with longitudinally slotted lugs for better grip on the edges. This gives it excellent directional stability and precise cornering behaviour.
Note from the manufacturer:
Maxxis strongly advises against the use of ammonia-based sealant. Ammonia has been proven to attack the carcass and can weaken it by up to 30% after only a few months, depending on the amount used.
Guidelines for replacing E-bike components:Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked e-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

At Maxxis, the 3C tread is moulded from 3 different rubber compounds in one piece and is not subsequently assembled from two strips. Therefore, the treads can be shaped exactly according to the requirements of the respective tyre model, thus optimising the riding characteristics.
A new name for the well-known 3C Downhill compound that many of the best downhillers have trusted for years. 3C MaxxGrip offers the ultimate grip and cushioning for unparalleled Downhill traction.
Dual Ply Casing
In Maxxis Downhill tyres, two plies of fabric are combined and wrapped around the bead cores. The finished carcass then has four layers on the sidewalls and six layers under the tread.
Wide Trail (WT):
This design optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed for narrower rims and become square on wider rims, resulting in a less than optimal performance. WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work excellently on all rims with an inner dimension of 30 - 40 mm. Concerns tyres with a width of 2.4" and above.
Tubeless tyres have many advantages: you can ride with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube, the risk of punctures is reduced. Maxxis TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other " tubeless ready" tyres. The bead of the Maxxis TR tyres is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tyre. As a result, tubeless mounting is successful for all rims with standard dimensions even during the first inflation and with little liquid.
