Are these Minin DHF's and are they good in the slop?? Kirkalde rode the tires blow in the dry/messy/dry NC national.

Minion 3C

Supposed to work as well as the 40a without lugs tearing off, last longer, and better traction in loose due to firm compound under cap.

Got a set on my new rig -- I guess I'll see soon; I love the 40's performace, just not their lifespan. (You can wreck one in a race run if all goes right/wrong.......)
Blah blah blah. . . . .

3C means 3 compounds in one, check out their website, the base is 60, the top tread is 42, & the side is 40. something like that. There sweet.

i used their 3c compound for a full year and was overall happy with them. they did wear super fast though even with a harder compound on the tire. great for loose terrain but not good for muddy conditions. they are a somewhat lighter tire compared to a Intense World Cup or 909.
i dont hate you. i hate everyone
