Minion DHF 3C MaxxTerra EXO WT TR 27.5" Folding Tyre - black/27.5x2.5

Maxxis Minion DHF 3C MaxxTerra EXO WT TR 27.5" Folding Tyre

Item number: 60478

Proven, successful and popular: the Minion DHF 27.5" 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.

3C MaxxTerra
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.
The Freeride version of Maxxis 3C compounds. More grip and traction than the 3C MaxxSpeed compound, with less rolling resistance and longer durability than 3C MaxxGrip. The ideal Enduro and Freeride mixture, because it combines good rolling resistance uphill with great grip on the descent.

EXO Protection
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewalls of various Maxxis MTB tyres. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tyres remains convincingly good.

Tubeless Ready
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.

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.

Der Grip und Kontrolle am Vorderrad unter trockenen Bedingungen ist super, die Haltbarkeit ebenso.

Allerdings stammt sämtlicher Grip offenbar nur vom "Verkanten" der Profilblöcke in unebenem Untergrund, während die MaxTerra Gummimischung selbst kaum Haftreibung zu besitzen scheint. Auf nassen Steinen, Wurzeln oder im Schlamm ein trügerischer Reifen - solange Profilkanten an Unebenheiten des Untergrundes anliegen ist Grip vorhanden. Liegt der Reifen zwischen den Profilblöcken nur mit der Lauffläche an nassen Flächen auf (bspw. an hölzernen Treppenstufen), schmiert er sofort unvermittelt weg. Auch setzt er sich in zäherem Schlamm bei niedrigen Temperaturen nach nur wenigen Radumdrehungen komplett zu.

Muss aufgrund des großen Abstandes der Seitenstollen zu den mittleren Profilblöcken in Kurven mit entsprechendem Körpereinsatz seitlich "auf die Seitestollen gelegt" werden um ausreichend Grip zu generieren.

Mit ausreichend hohem Luftdruck gefahren ist auch die Pannensicherheit mit Schläuchen sehr gut, scharfkantige Steinfelder oder Einschläge in Bordsteinkanten oder Treppenstufen hat er bisher problemlos überstanden.
