Our verdict

This fast, grippy off-road racing tyre is perfect for Cross Country marathons and competition. But not limited to an XC application, many trail riders opt for this as a rear tyre with the EXO casing offering puncture protection, teamed with the 3C Triple Compound for uncomprimised grip. If you ride dirt jumps, 4x and slalom style courses too, the Ikon will offer more bite when you really need it, making this tyre extremely diverse and suitabe for a range of disciplines.
