Maxxis Celebrates 20 Years of Minion with FLUID, ft Braydon Bringhurst 5

Braydon Bringhurst in Eagle, Idaho, celebrating 20 years of the Maxxis Minion.

Maxxis is stoked to announce that we’re celebrating 20 years of the Minion starting on Monday, August 16! The Minion has been basically unchanged from factory rider Colin Bailey’s original design (other than scaling knobs for different sizes) since 2001, an impressive feat in this industry. Over 20 years the Minion DHF—and eventually the DHR II—became the reference tires for gravity and aggressive trail riding.

To celebrate, Maxxis is offering a limited production run of the Minion DHF (27.5/29x2.5 3C Terra EXO TR, $83 USD) with throwback graphics that give a nod to the OG heavy metal font of the original tire. There’s more 20th anniversary themed gear including custom gloves from Handup, socks, and fenders available as well. All items will be available on our US e-store on Monday, August 16 and tires should be arriving at retail locations worldwide in the following days and weeks. Quantities are limited and we fully expect to sell out, but what else is new these days?
