Recognizing the exploding popularity of plus-size bikes, Maxxis today showed off some of its newest rubber, including 3.0-inch wide versions of its much loved Minion DHF and DHR II tires in both 27.5 and 29-inch diameter.

This is an especially significant development for 29+ riders who, up until now, have been limited to only a couple tire choices. Just like their narrower brethren, the new plus size Minions feature EXO sidewall protection.

Just imagine the traction from this bad boy.

Another popular tread design, the High Roller II, is available in 27.5×2.8”, making for an ideal rear tire, running one of the Minions up front. These new plus-size offerings from Maxxis will surely take the all-mountain and all-day adventure performance of plus size tires to a new level thanks to the brand’s outstanding reputation for durability and grip.
