Haven't tried them yet as these are spares because of the difficulty in finding affordable tire in this size. Bought a used fat tire bike and didn't realize that the tire size is not common at all, so I thought I'd better get a spare set for when the current tires gets shredded up.
These are the summer meats for my otherwise-winter bike. Changing to these is faster than pulling all the studs out. ;)
Noticeably stiffer than my Cake Eaters, and quite a bit smaller. Occasionally pedal strike, but nothing that can't be dealt with, certainly not a deal-breaker. Heaps of traction on loose stuff. Feels more like my 27.5 "plus" bike, but with endless grip and slower. If you like the "tank-traction" feel of a fatbike without the bouncy bloat from really fat tires, these seem like a great compromise.
I had been looking over a year for a replacement tire and was relieved to finally find one with this Maxxis Minion. But this tire is so much more. It rolls well on flat trails and grips great on single track. Let the fun roll!
