Featuring a cluster of short, ramped knobs, with the favoured Minion shoulder knobs at the sides, the Maxxis Minion SS is a fast-rolling tyre with a square profile provides confidence inspiring traction over loose terrain and fast corners.
Perfectly suited to riders seeking high trail speed front and rear. if your trails demand more traction up front and you prefer something beefier, the Minion SS will complement whatever you choose perfectly when used on the rear. There are not many other models that can provide as much balance between rolling speed and cornering traction as the Minion SS Tyre.
The following Maxxis technologies feature on the Minion SS tyre and the appropriate version of this tyre should be selected depending on which compound and puncture protection suits your riding requirements:
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
Silkworm Technology is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear resistance. Silkworm is featured under the tread as a breaker (denoted as Silkworm).
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty. Maxxis TR tires use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight. Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires are the only Maxxis tires approved for use with liquid sealants.
