Minion FBR Tyre Test Results

If you’re looking for fat bike cycling tyres and you’re not sure which tyres to choose, you can always look to tyre tests for the answer.

Fat Bike tested the Minion FBF/FBR:

“Both of our sets of test tires were run tubeless with remarkably easy set-up. We’ve been using Stan’s Sealant exclusively for the last few months with great results. We incurred no flats and no weeping has happened during our ninety-day test. I think it’s going to be interesting to see how 27.5 x 3.8 performs over the 2018 winter race scene. Last year’s Arrowhead was won on low-fat wheels and I predict that won’t be the last big race that’s won aboard a bike with a set of low-fat wheels. Most of our testing took place before the snow flew, so If you’re riding a set of these tires, please let us know how they handle deeper snow. We’ve gotten snow, but we keep melting back to where this is one of those winters where we’re not piling it up very deep. I think that this set of tires would totally rip on the groomed track at the fat-bike birkie and I’m curious to see how much flotation they can provide in different snow depths and conditions.

Maxxis has done a really nice job with these bad mamma-jammas. I’m giving them 4.75 gnomes out of 5”

Minion FBR Tyre Reviews

Sometimes the best reviews come from riders just like you. Take a look at our user reviews below.

Rider,, June 2019:

Great traction. Does not clear mud that well but it does the job. Makes my fat bike a true 4 season bike without having to change wheels. Save my 4.5 tires for winters.


Rider,, August 2019:

“Previously ran Surly Bud and Lou on my fat bike, never totally happy with the grip on the back wheel over wet rocks and tree roots.

The Maxxis Minion had loads of reliable grip in wet Welsh conditions, I haven’t noticed much difference on sand dunes and never tried the Minion on snow.

It’s a little heavy but I’m very impressed so far and a good price at Chainreaction.”


Rider,, November 2019:

“Ridding woodland trail and muddy bridle ways. The tyre didn't lose grip in six inches of sloppy, peaty mud even when I was standing on the peddles. My previous tyre used to spin and slid but the Maxxis tyre is 'solid'. Note: Maxxis front also fitted”


Rider,, December 2019:

“This is a great performing Fat Bike Tire. Performs exceptionally well in all conditions. AT this price point it cannot be beat!”
