Maxxis Minotaur Full Knob Tire

3/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $27.99

Product Description

Sizes: 26x1.90, both in Kevlar and wire bead. Front or rear.
A more general use version of our popular Minotaur racing tire. The Full-Knob has larger knobs providing more traction. This is a very fast rolling tire, especially in Hardpack to loose conditions.

Strengths:    Umm... if you filled up a tire with air and it stayed on the rim, would you call that a strenght or would that be more of an expectation?

Weaknesses:    These tires roll slow. The tire used on the front of the bike falls very short of confidence inspiring. The rear does simply what I would expect a rear tire to do. They seem to wear quite quickly. I expect to have this rubber toasted in the next three or four races... lasting a total of 6... or 150 miles total.

Bottom Line:   
If I was just a guy riding a bike, than the rear tire would be average. I would still not use it as a front tire. For $27 though, you really can't beat it.
