    Maxxis Minion DHF 60A Vs Bontrager XR4. Which one?

    Hi Guys


    Ive been reading into the Bontrager XR4 and ive seen good reviews. I couldnt find a shootout comparing the Minion to the XR4. I have experience only with the Minion. Has anyone tried both models for All Mountain style of riding? Please describe traction and rolling resistance. Thanks!
    Only type of shuttle I ride....the ambulance!

    Ive riden both for about a season each. XR4 has equal grip with less rolling resistance than the Minion DHF. But... the sidewalls, even on the Team Issure TLR version, are pretty thin - I tore one on a rocky off camber landing that Ive hit dozens of times on my Maxxis without issue. I still run the XR4 rear but switched to the High Roller 2 up front for the thicker sidewalls.
