    Nobody knows. Maxxis doesn't make a DHF 2.

    Need to be more specific, as there's a ton of variations:

    General Tread Pattern: Minion DHR 2, Minion DHR 2 WT, Minion DHR 2 Plus, Minion FBR (sorted from narrowest to widest)

    Tread Compound: Single Compound, Dual Compound, 3C MaxxTerra, 3C MaxxGrip, SuperTacky (sorted from least slowest/tackiest to to most)

    Casing: Standard, DD, Dual Ply (sorted from lighter duty to heavier duty)

    Reinforcement: Standard, EXO (sidewall slash reinforcement)

    Carcass/Bead Lining: Standard, TR (tubeless)

    Width/size: "2.3" (58-559), "2.4" (61-559) (in DHR 2 and DHR 2 WT)

    Generally, the tire has relatively low rolling resistance*, only slightly more than an Ardent, and has consistent dependable all-around handling characteristics. It also works on the front, instead of the Minion DHF, if you prioritize low rolling resistance* over cornering. Weights are average starting at under 800g, very competitive in the trail/AM market. It won a few awards as best all-around tire from a number of publications. You can modify the tire to have cornering traits similar to the DHF with some labor-intensive knob trimming of the wider set blocks, to create a gap between center paddles and shoulder knobs.

    * DHR2 generally tests around ~30W depending on wheel size, compound, carcass, and pressure (combined resistance of 49W, with MaxxTerra front and DC rear in 27.5 EXO, for reference). DHF and High Roller 2 in 3C MaxxTerra are ~45W and up (their testing rig maxes out at 45W, but the HR2 rolls slower than the DHF). High end road tires are ~10W and XC tires range from 20-30W.
