The Maxxis Minion SS DD/TR 27.5" Tire is the ideal tire for competing on the modern enduro circuit's long, winding descents. Designed to bridge the gap between a fast rolling cross-country tire and a grippy downhill tire, the Minion SS blends short ramped knobs with the iconic Minion side knobs. This combination rolls fast for prolonged climbs, while still digging in for optimal grip on white-knuckle descents.
The Minion SS uses Maxxis' Dual rubber compound, developed to provide lower rolling resistance with increased cornering grip. Double Down dual ply 120 TPI casing features a butyl insert for an extremely cut- and abrasion-resistant tire, making passing through craggy climbs and unexpected rock gardens worry-free. Designed for versatility and durability, the Minion SS features a Tubeless Ready casing that's lightweight, flexible, and capable of running without a tube when using liquid sealant.
