The Minion SS fills the gap between a fast rolling XC tire and a grippy DH tire by including a cluster of short, ramped knobs, flanked by the much-loved Minion side knobs. This combination creates a fast-rolling tire with a square profile that hooks up in loose terrain. Perfect for the modern enduro circuit's long descents and longer climbs.
- Minion cornering knobs and a semi-slick center. Works best a rear tire, not recommended as a front tire.
- EXO casing: A pinch-flat resistant casing, fairly light-duty.
- Dual: The firmest compound, better for dry/hardpack conditions. Longest life, but reduced traction, especially in the wet.
