    Minion Semi Slick? !!

    Anyone else see this on pink bike?
    Spotted: Prototype Maxxis Minion Semi-Slick Tire - Pinkbike

    I wish the center knobs were the larsen center knobs, then this would be the perfect back tire for me.

    Well, I guess I now have a tire to buy when my stockpile of Kenda BBGs runs out.

    I've been waiting for Maxxis to produce a tire like this one. Hopefully they will show some 26" love.

    Yes it needs to be in 26er flavor. The specialized slaughter not being offered in 26 is lame, hopefully maxxis does not follow suit.

    Like this one they stopped production on? This isn't a new idea just something being recycled again. Likely the only reason they made this is the Rock razor is the only option right now.

    I personally run a 29er but they are becoming to segraggted in the bike world to the 650's and 29ers. They need to keep all the options alive!

    excuse my ignorance...but what pros/cons does running semi-slicks like these have? I'm trying to figure out what their ideal use is?

    It's a dry condition tire that rolls nice & fast but still corners as well as regular DH tires. The key word is dry.
    As soon as the ground gets wet you're in deep trouble unless you can channel your inner Danny Hart.

    Dry and ... firm. Not so good in rocky, loose, chunky, gravelly etc. terrain. Where they aren't spinning or sliding out they're getting ripped to shreds. But on hardpan they rock!
