Maxxis is filling in the mid “Plus” size range for 29ers with their new Minion DHF, DHR II and Rekon tires in 29×2.6 sizes. They’re also filling in the gap between full DH-worthy casings and their trail-worthy EXO casing with a new EXO+. That casing sits halfway between EXO and DD (DoubleDown) casings, adding their Silk Shield puncture protection bead to bead while keeping the EXO sidewall cut protection in place. It’ll come on 2.5 to 2.8 widths for the Minions and Rekon for now, likely on other models in the future.

Initially it will only be available on the High Road, which is not tubeless ready. It’s clincher only for now, but they told us we can expect more changes to come to the road side soon.
