Maxxis Rekon Tyre

Inspired by the Maxxis Ikon, The Rekon is an aggressive XC tyre for technical terrain

Recommended Use: Cross Country All Mountain/Trail


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Rekon is available in Maxxis' popular EXO casing or EXO+ casing for additional puncture and tear protection on rougher terrain. The compounds on offer for this model are the 3C Maxx Speed, prioritising longevity and low rolling resistance, or the intermediate 3C Maxx Terra, balancing fast rolling characteristics with supportive grip.

What is the intended use?

Inheriting most of the design aspects from Maxxis' cross country race tyre the 'Ikon'. The Rekon is aimed at the aggresive XC rider on intermediate and technical terrain, better suited in dry conditions. The widely spaced tread pattern provides control under braking, whilst the ramped centre tread keeps the tyre rolling fast. Paired with the aggressive side knobs for confidence in ripping loose turns, the Rekon is a great XC and All Mountain all rounder.

Our verdict

If you race XC or want a fast rear tyre the Rekon is the perfect Trail and XC weapon for aggressive Cross Country courses. Better suited to hardpack and drier conditions, this tyre provides optimal speed, support and traction in corners.
