Maxxis Minion DHR II 2 downhill DH mountain bike tires

As a followup to the DHF, the new Maxxis DHR II takes over as their top downhill mountain bike tread.

It’ll come in three rubber compound options: Single, 3C MaxxGrip and Super Tacky. The first two are at distributors now, the latter will be available later this summer. For now, it’ll only be offered in a wire bead 26×2.4 with their 2-ply DH casing.

More like they fixed the DHR to better live up to its intended use as a DH Rear specific tire. People will still be running DHF in the front.

People were using DHF (DH Front specific intended use) or High Roller (Downhill version) for the rear, instead of the DHR. This has DHF style side knobs, spaced out a bit more, and features for improving braking and acceleration. This should make it a better option that the DHF for the rear, technically.
