    I have both tires on different bikes and I find the Minion II DHR rolls faster despite the tread on the Highrollers look more faster rolling.

    What do you prefer?

    I had the HR 2 and the DHR 2 and I concur - the DHR 2 is noticeably faster, although it looks like it would be slower. The DHRII has fewer uninterrupted channels than the HRII if you spin and look. I'm rolling the DHF in front (2.5 exo in a 26er size - which equals 2.3) and the DHRII 2.3 TR Exo in back (tubeless). I LOVE this set up.

    My buddy bought an HR II 2.3 for the back of his Rocky Mt. Altitude (27.5) and said it felt like a boat anchor compared to his 2.4 Conti Mt. King that came stock. He ditched it for an Ikon and has regained his climbing speed, just like that (and $70 poorer for the mistake).
