Race more, scout less.
The Rekon 3C/EXO/TR MTB Tire from Maxxis is both bigger and badder thanks to beefy dimensions and a variable knob profile that inspires aggressive riding in a variety of terrain. At 27.5 x 2.6 inches, this tire provides a plush ride feel while dense groupings of side knobs support clean cornering and wide-spread sloped knobs facilitate rapid acceleration. 3C Maxx Terra compound provides grip and higher wear resistance while the limber casing gives-way to bumps and other trail irregularities for a smooth ride. EXO technology provides puncture and tear resistance.

This tire came on the rear of my new Pivot 5.5. Im on my third 2.6 Rekon and all three have had the carcass punctured or torn by sharp rocks. Youd think Id learn my lesson. Tire is light for a 2.6 Good traction,mounts easy but not durable
