New to the lineup for 2016, the Maxxis 27. 5in Minion SS Tire bridges the gap between fast, low profile XC tires and beefy downhill tires with a mixed knob profile that brings you the best of both worlds for maximum enduro fun. Featuring clumps of short, ramped knobs down the middle for rolling speed and the fat side knobs found on the original downhill Minion, the Minion SS rolls fast and grips hard in corners and loose trail conditions. This tire's foldable bead is tubeless ready and features 60 TPI casing and a dual compound for pliable durability and grip. As an added bonus, EXO sidewall protection fends off pesky rocks and trail obstacles to prevent ride ending tire tears as you bomb towards the finish line.
