    “Maxxis has expanded the Minion DHF’s Wide Trail offerings to include 26×2.5WT”

    YES 26″ = YES SALE.

  • Highway Star says:

    The 26×2.5WT DHF should be pretty huge and as big as any practical rider needs. I’ve got a 26×2.5WT Shorty that is massive and a 26×2.4WT DHR2 that is nearly as big. I’ve been waiting for the 26×2.8 DHF/R2 to become available at retailers, but I doubt I’ll pick one up.

    The 2.5WT DHF 3C and 2.4WT DHR2 DC should be a great combo for all around rough riding.

  • Jason Smith says:

    I have 27.5 x 2.6 DHF and 27.5 x 2.6 Rekon on my Santa Cruz 5010. That combo works really well for my riding style on Pisgah and Dupont state forest trails in NC. Great traction, lower pressures, more confidence on rocky and rooty descents. When I put them on last month, it felt like it added a little bit of travel to my suspension.

  • jc says:

    Forekaster = IRC Mythos on roids

  • Willis says:

    Rekon in a 29 x 2.6? Did not see it on the site, but will anxiously wait!

  • LW says:

    Maxxis Minion 26 x 4.8s just shredded 36 miles of Bend singletrack and lava rocks over the 2 rides this past weekend. I was impressed they held up on the sharp rocks and the float/traction on the loose dusty sections was unreal. Fat Bikes all year long. Keep up the great tires.

    4.0 nobby nic or 4.0 magic mary. Full suspension Fat bikes are NOT just for the snow…we want to rip in the mtns. enough with this low profile fat tire crap.

  • James says:

    Now, the big question… WHEN will they hit the market?

  • Rob says:

    so glad a Fat Albert is back. not a huge fan of the original tire, but that name is too good to retire forever.

  • PinkFloydLandis says:

    “Now, the big question… WHEN will they hit the market?”
    Exactly my thoughts as well. Schwalbe announced the Almotion tubeless model nearly two years ago and still haven’t shipped it. The Procore system is now 10 months past their reported availability data at announcement, and still none in shops.

  • HankHill says:

    They seriously brought the old Nobby Nic back as Tough Tom? Is this a joke? That was one of the worst tires I’ve ever ridden. I hope they’ve strengthened the sidewalls and increased the durability of the rubber, otherwise it’s just a total dud.

  • Dominick says:

    Schwalbe discounted Super Moto 29×2.35 which is ultimate urban tire for my rigid 29er. Tubeless setup, smooth ride with low rolling resistance. Grab a set while still on a market. At lest I did.

    The information on the Revolution is misleading. There are 6 sizes, 3 700c sizes and 3 2″ MTB sizes. The narrow, 700c tires start at the weight listed, the 2″ tires are much heavier.

  • jjj says:

    26x 2.35/2.4 please please and pretty please.
    Really wanted one for up front but 2.3 is just that bit too small to take impacts tubeless.

    After looking through the website at all the options…sad face :[

  • jjj says:

    Also does softer in turns make sense? Wont that allow more folding of the knobs and less digging in?

    And the same with the straight line ..shouldnt more compliance give a smoother more efficient ride?

    That all seems backwards somehow.
