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 2.6 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.

120 TPI is horrible on anything rocky

These tires came stock on my Surly KM but in the 60 TPI variety. When the rear tire wore I replaced it with this 120 TPI version. It was prone to flats just from rolling over rocks. I live in Tucson where the biggest concern was cactus needles but rocks??? And these were large flats where I was lucky to patch using two bacon strips.

So I stocked up on the 60 TPI version but still had another 120 TPI in the closet. Yesterday I put it on the front and another damn large puncture from a rock within 20 miles of riding. 20 miles on a new tire and it's toast. I've ridden this particular trail over 200 times and not had a problem with the other tires but these absolutely suck. FWIW I did get 4000 miles on the original front tire and probably had 20 something cactus needles in the tire. Get the 60, the 120 forget it, worse tire ever.

Rolls fast for being a big daddy tire and grips great for being fairly low tread, even in a lot different conditions. Although, used it primary as summer, dry weather tire, was abke to continue to run it late in the season as the trails changed. I usualluly flat and tear most all my tires within a mobth or two, but these survived on my hardtail (rarely sees rocks) and are pretty light for how big they are in a 29. Only cons is that they wear fairly fast due to 3C compound (within a season), especially out back and are pretty pricey to replace. Great tire if you can find that for good deal.
