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 29 x 2.25 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.

So far so good Running DHF in front and Rekon in rear. Ive run the ardent, ardent race, ikon and cross mark in rear and like this the best. Good traction & braking and fast rolling. 4 stars due to low profile tread which is going to wear out quickly! Wish the knob height was higher like the 27.5 version!
