The tubeless-ready Rekon 3C/EXO/TR MTB Tire from Maxxis has the versatility to tackle a wide range of trail conditions thanks to a variable knob profile that includes a diffusion of hefty knobs for clean cornering and beveled knobs for fast rolling. Featuring a malleable casing and grippy 3C Maxx Terra compound, this tire provides a stable, smooth ride over trail irregularities. Punctures and tears are less of a concern with this tire thanks to EXO protection.

    Great fast rolling trail tire!

    Nice tire choice for riders who are looking for a fast rolling, light weight tire that still stays in control while cornering. Has been a great summer tire for me on my Ibis Ripley.

    You really can't go wrong with anything Maxxis does, but I especially love the Rekons. They aren't super heavy and hook up nicely in a variety of conditions. Here in the Boise, ID area...we have some sand, some hardpack, and some rocks...and these tires perform like champs on it all. I have been using Rekons for a few years now...they don't wear super fast and have yet to leave me stranded due to a slashed tire. My new bike came with a different set of tires...I thought for about 3 seconds that maybe it would be nice to try something different...and then came to my senses and placed an order for these.

    I purchased the Rekon 29 x 2.4. I mounted it up on my 29mm id rims, aired it to 40psi and let it sit 2 days. I am very disappointed that it only measures 2.21" knob to knob. The casing measures 2.19". I have the Rekon 29 x 2.25 mounted on a 25mm id rim and it measures 2.22". I like the 2.25 a lot so I thought I would like the 2.4. Basically it's a heavy, slow 2.20 Rekon. Do not buy the 2.4 if you are expecting it to be 2.35 - 2.4 wide. I waisted $70.00 on a tire that I won't use.

    Maxxis Rekon 29�

    I was looking for a tire that had a little more grip than the Ikon that was previously on my bike. The Rekon was a great next step up and the rolling resistance does not seem to be too different. Definitely has more grip than the Ikon on loose dirt, loose over hardpack, and on gravely surfaces but it is not anywhere close to an Assegai traction wise. Great option for a fast rolling XC tire with more grip than the Ikon. I ride a number of trails in the San Jose, Santa Cruz area. I am still running an Ikon in the rear.

    Maxxis Rekon - Balance of Traction and Speed

    by Anonymous

    1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

    For my style of riding; pretty much a mixture of everything (excluding wet conditions), the Rekon is a great tire and has become my go-to rear tire choice. When comparing to more aggressive rear tires like the Ardent or DHR II, the Rekon lacks some cornering traction, but in my mind, is a sacrifice I can forfeit.

    My only complaint, along with all 3C Maxxis tires, is while the compound provide great traction, the tire wear is significantly faster than the 2-ply versions.

    I am pairing a rekon with an ikon on my hardtail. This is proving to be a great combination for the mixed terrain/mixed surfaces that I ride. The balance of grip and being fast rolling is making me very happy. I had read some warnings about poor performance in wet conditions but so far I haven't had any problems.

    I am a big fan of this tire ran in the rear and paired with a more aggressive tire up front. (Current front tire is a Maxxis Dissector 29X2.4.)

    The center tread on the Rekon rolls fast and has adequate braking and climbing traction in all but the rough terrain. Side knobs provide good bite so long as the bike is lent over.

    As with nearly all modern Maxxis tires with 3C compound, the tires are nice and grippy but quickly wear. As a consumable product, thats just the way it goes.

    Product shipped and received quickly. I will be mounting this tire on the rear, with a Maxxis Forecaster on the front, of my Pivot Mach 429 Trail for the 2021 season here in MI. There's a good variety of hardpack, and loose leaves/sand. Should be a good combination.

    I've used this tire on mixed terrain, with rocks, dirt, roots, and hardpack mud. It offers better traction than Ikons but feels a little smoother rolling than Ardents.

    Good tire for mixed terrain

    This tire is good for mixed terrrain, and hooks up well in moist dirt and firm mud. It's not the fastest or most aggressive tread, but hits a nice do-it-all sweet spot. I mounted these on relatively wide (28mm internal) rims without wrestling the tire bead too much, and my high volume pump inflated them in one go...I can't comment on long term durability yet, but have found the Maxxis EXO compound effective in preventing sidewall cuts with other tires.

    Bike Santa Cruz tallboy 29er

    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!
