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.

With so many tires, it's hard to know whether any tire you choose is the best for your trails. I ride a rigid 29er on single track with loads of tree roots but hardly any rocks and use this as my rear tire. I ride close to 3 miles back and forth from my house to the trails mostly on asphalt. The tire rolls very fast on both, is comfortable and has only flatted once in 9 months of regular use. The tire is set up tubeless on carbon wheels and the one flat I had was slow enough to make it back home (approximately 30 minutes) by adding air periodically with two 25g co2 cartridges. I then added some sealant at home and the tire rides good as new. I really like the grip, speed, weight and comfort as a rear tire. I use the 29x2.6 Maxxis Forekastor up front and think they are the best combination I have used in the 20 years I have been riding the same trails. It might deserve 5 stars but there are more tires I haven't used than tire I have.

Very happy with the performance - used on a 20mm wide rim, width dimension actual 2.4
by Anonymous

I like the tire performance on my Michigan fall trail conditions, grabs well on hard dirt and light snow conditions, or leaf carpet trails.

I was looking for a 2.6" width tire, however when mounted on my 20mm alloy rim, the actual tire width is 2.4"

120 TPI is horrible on anything rocky
by Tuxon todd

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.

Rekon 2.6

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.
