Strengths:    Great tractions and compliancy. Tire also rolls well for being so aggresive.

Weaknesses:    Price is a bit high, but for a front tire it should last a while.

Bottom Line:   
I just repalced the front tire on my HDR with this tire from a Hans Dampf 2.35 and wow what a difference. This tire really sticks and felt more compliant. This front tire really made my bike feel awesome. Even though it is not as wide as the Hans Dampf, it is great in sand and loose/rocky terrain.
Fantastic product.

Strengths:    Great traction, rolls well for a tire with aggressive knobs, relatively light weight, easy tubeless set-up
Very similar to 26" DHF, still a go to tire for dry, loose dirt

Weaknesses:    $65 is tough to swallow for a tire

Bottom Line:   
Reliable tire for aggressive riding

Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 ?

Is the 2.5 Minion much larger in volume & width than the Hans Dampf? I've read a couple things that the tire is not much wider than the 2.25 Ardent. If that's the case, I'll order. I don't need a true 2.5 sized tire so thought I'd ask before ordering. The HD is about as large as I want. Thanks!Read More »
