Maxxis Minion 29 x 2.5 mountain bike tire review mad grip

The Minion is tried and true, and with the right pressure they rock! Tubeless is even better, and the confidence gained is real.

the problem of low preasure is how the tire deforms when preloading a jump or landing off line. all tires grip more at lower when doing xc but you should set your psi based on the hardest you will be riding that day. beyond that theres not much need for this kind of tire because this is a hardcore all mountain tire.
big air, big psi, no folding over. the secret is the wider rim.

Jonathan San Pedro says:

Hi! I would like to know the size of your rim? from Philippines here. Thank You!

Thanks for posting 🙂

What’s the actual width and height of the tyre -knob to knob width and rim to center knob?

Also what is the internal rim width of your rim?

Sorry to be so inquisitative but -I’m thinking of getting this tyre but am unsure if it’ll fit the frame.

Want to race? Pneumatic tires have reached their performance levels. We will never go flat. We have a prescribed Footprint. Anti kickback. Screw force.

I’m thinking about switching to these once my Hans Dampf wear out. Nice review thanks


Great review. I’m curious to know what the rolling resistance feels like. Also, whats the weight of this tire? Thanks man!
