Strengths:    In the two months that I've been running this tire on the front they have been bombproof. I run em tubeless with Stan's, on Mavic 823's and all I can say is SOLID. The sidewalls are really thick and I've never torn em'nor have I lost any sideknobs. The Minion hooks up noticably better then the Highroller 2.5 UST when used in the front. A great all around tire that is reliable and won't leave you high and dry in the middle of your ride.

Weaknesses:    The price is a bit high, but well worth the coin.

Bottom Line:   
I've been running Maxxis 2.5 UST Highrollers for appx. six months and I love them. I continue to run the HR on the back and I recently switched to the UST Minion 2.5 up front. The Minion seems a bit more sure footed in loose stuff especially when you really lay it over in a corner. These hunks of rubber weigh in at appx. 1250-1300g each, so they're not the lightest tire on the market for their given size. I'd highly recommend them if you're just about sick of the paper thin Kenda sidewalls, weight is not too big of an issue, or just looking for a seriously durable tire with an equally tough sidewall. I run em here in socal and we see a bit of everykind of dirt here and these tires just flat out perform.

Maxxis Minion DHF Dual Ply vs. Minion DHF UST - what exactly are the differences?

I'm finding a lot of conflicting information on this and the Maxxis website can't be trusted either. Does anybody know exactly what the deal is? - Is the Minion DHF UST 2.5 a dual ply tire with butyl insert, like the regular one? Or are the sidewalls on the UST somehow thinner / lacking the butyl ... Read More »

Minion DHF 2ply as tubeless on UST rim ?

Approaching my new AM build, getting to the point of making up my mind for tyres. So far I run Advantage 2.1 LUST at front and Crossmark 2.1 UST rear, this is in my trail bike which does a fair amount of aggressive trails. Now, the new bike will be particularly AM-oriented and I'm willing to try di ... Read More »

Anyone running Minion DHF EXO's on a UST rim?

KRob had them tubeless, but I think on non-UST rims? These look great for tough but lighter tires than the Dual ply..Read More »

Minion UST 2.5 DHF vs 2.7 Minion DHF for DH?

Hi, Sorry for the cross post - I put this in the tires and wheels forum and I actually think it more belongs here. Anyone have an opinion on whether the 2.5 DHF UST is a "big enough" tire for the front vs the 2.7 non UST on a DH bike build, with Fox 40, Intense SOCOM etc running on Stan's not ... Read More »

Minion UST 2.5 DHF vs 2.7 Minion DHF for DH?

Hi, Anyone have an opinion on whether the 2.5 DHF UST is "enough" tire for the front vs the 2.7 non UST on a DH bike build, with Fox 40, Intense SOCOM etc running on Stan's notubes ZTR Flow rims with saint hubs. Specifically I am wondering if I "really" need a 2.7 tire up front. I know the ... Read More »
