well, basically these tires improve the bike handling and the riders ability. go figure....how could that happen you say.......the volume helped my hardtail 29r over the rocky stuff and the super good tread helped in the loose crap in the turns. so i got better !......because of these dang tires! i have beat the crap out of these and they seem to like it. they may be a bit heavier than others out there, but good luck with that weight weeny! save it elsewhere! not on the main part of you bike that actually touches the ground. ......or you will.

I like these OK. I typically run a Rekon 2.4 up front with Ikon 2.35 rear for training and marathon/ultra races. I picked these up in 2.35 as a faster rear option. I didn't notice much of a speed pick up. Maybe a little but nothing definitive even with a power meter. They do, however, break loose much earlier than the Ikons on the l. At least for my riding, the tradeoff isn't worth it - there isn't enough of a speed increase. I think next year I'll stick with Ikons rear for more consistent traction and try Aspens for when I need a faster rear option now that they offer a wide trail version.

Bad Luck with Rekon Race Tires - Multiple Failures
rating

I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same bad luck with Rekon Race tires as me. I've had four flats/failures of Rekon Race tires within the last 4 months, two while XC riding/training, and an unfortunate double flat in a local XC race where I ended up needing to run across the finish line to finish. I've switched back to Ardent Race tires which I'd been running prior to using Rekon Race tires. My experience with the Ardent Race tires is that while they are a bit heavier and have more rolling resistance, they have a fraction of the failures and have been much more durable/less failure prone which, to me, more than compensates for the their comparative slight disadvantage in weight and rolling resistance.

This tire has been great so far. Running it on my rear wheel on a hardtail. It gets good grip, but rolls fast. The bead was also pretty easy to set for a tubeless setup.

I've been toying with the whole Maxxis line of XC tires this year. OEM Ignitor, then Ardent, Ikon, Rekon, Rekon Race.

SoCal hardpack, loose over hard, minimal sandmud.

I really liked the RekonIkon setup, but killed the rear Ikon sidewall on a sharp rock. Rekon Race replaced it and I love it. Even more grip when climbing and braking. Feels similar in cornering.
