    This front tire excels in Co Springs where the terrain is loose granite gravel over hardpack dirt trail. It is a heavy tire and can feel like pushing a plow uphill, but downhill the confidence lets you rip!ProsIdeal for loose over hard,

    This is a great tire, I replaced a XKing which was faster but didn't hold up.

    Pros
    Great grip, running it on the front, durable

    Price and weight

    I have the 29 / 2.35 on the front and rear
    Great tire for the descents over wet sketchy rock gardens.
    I have them on my hardtail and they really allow you to get into the more technical terrain

    Pros
    Excellent grip
    tubeless
    goes well in any conditions
    Never had a puncture
    All mountain do it all tire

    Cons
    They aren't the fastest rolling tire but its probably made up for by the extra grip you get out of them.

    i run 2.5" on rear and front and they are noticeably slower but would trade the benefits of braapability any day

    Pros
    Great grip. Soft but durable compound. Burly AM tire.

    Cons
    weight and resistance. It's an AM tire tho so pick your poison

    Yes, without hesitation. It's a great tire to throw up front on your favorite trail ripper.

    Pros
    - shreds all-mountain trails
    - builds confidence regardless of conditions
    - durable

    Cons
    - price and weight
    - not your fastest roller

    I recommend this tire in the front.

    Pros
    Awesome tire! Shreds hard and precise. Fair amount of rolling resistance. Sets up tubeless very easy no flats or burps.

    Cons
    Not light or fast.

    I switched from Kenda Nevegals to Maxxis Minions on my 29er and have never been happier. Riding the CO Frontrange can put a hammering on tires if you ride hard and I'm not looking back. Defintiely worth the added weight on the climbs.

    Pros
    By far the best grip I have experienced yet. This tire chews and naws while begging for more. Don't be afraid to lean it over hard.

    Cons
    Heavier than most tires...but worth it.

    I only have these tires below to compare to.
    This tire replaced my High Roller 2.35, the 2.5 is a bit wider than the High Roller and the same size as my 2.25 Maxxis Crossmark
    Corner grip destroys the high roller, I've gone much faster and still have yet to reach the limit.

    Pros
    Grip

    This is the most used tire in the DH community for one simple reason. It's the best. Has won many World cups and many hearts of riders alike.

    Pros
    Grip
    Predictability
    Rolling resistance

    Cons
    price

    When it comes down to it, the DHF is THE best tire on the market. When paired with a DHR or another DHF the tire combo the predictability, stability, and grip cannot be beaten.

    I have tired a number of other tires over the years and each time I find myself coming back to Minions.

    These tires are a tad expensive but well worth the money.

    Pros
    - Best DH tire on the market
    - Fast and predictable
    - Can be paired both front and back
    - Offers plenty of grip
    - Great in all conditions (except for massive amounts of mud)
    - Grabs corners like no bodies business
    - Durable

    Cons
    - Don't roll well on the flat
    - Weight
    - Price

    Great trail tire even though it's designed for DH. I would recommend this tire to anyone who takes their corners fast and rides through lot of mud.

    Pros
    Attacks mud like it's not even there, Corners well, Grips the ground when inflated properly.

    Cons
    The lip of my tires seem to be unraveling a little, it hasn't caused me any problems though. I bought these tires slightly used on geartrade.com , so that may have something do do with it. They may hurt your speed in a race too.

    Great do it all tire, I use it for trail riding in VT for the Spring and wet Fall terrain, grips well never had any issues at all with these tires.

    Pros
    Good do it all tire, It was designed for DH, but works well for trails where it is wet and sloppy. Rolling resistance isn't bad, but grips very well.

    Cons
    weight if I have to list something.
