Maxxis continues to make solid tires (tyres). The Rekon has worked well in dry and wet conditions. Cornering is stable at high and low speeds. The sidewalls have been abused by cacti and sharp volcanics (and small children) without missing a beat or stopping a ride. I've run them at normal tubeless psi and at low psi with no burping issues. Set up did not require anything more than a standard floor pump, e.g. quick and easy. I would buy them again.
I am a big fan of this tire ran in the rear and paired with a more aggressive tire up front. (Current front tire is a Maxxis Dissector 29X2.4.)
The center tread on the Rekon rolls fast and has adequate braking and climbing traction in all but the rough terrain. Side knobs provide good bite so long as the bike is lent over.
As with nearly all modern Maxxis tires with 3C compound, the tires are nice and grippy but quickly wear. As a consumable product, thats just the way it goes.
Extremely reliable tough tubeless road tire. I've taken staples and glass shards out that never broke the protection layer. Despite all the abuse they've had on my commuteradventure bike I've only noticed them need to seal one tiny pinhole, which they did fast with orange seal. I have the 32s, which measure 33 on a 21mm internal rim. I expected the ride to be fairly wooden and it is if you inflate to 55-60 psi. Another reviewer here said pressure in the 40's works better and I agree very much. Mid 40s is really the sweet spot for these as a plush road ride, that takes the sting out of train tracks and all the worst stuff.
The quality is great and setup was easy (for tubeless anyway). For value to be honest I'd do 5 stars if they were a little cheaper. These start getting into GP5000TL range which are also available in a 32 and have better feel, rolling resistance and in my experience heal just fine. Sort of feels like premium price for commuter tires but at the same time these have really treated me great. Previously ran gravelking 32s set up the same but they were abysmally fragile for me. I began referring to them as fragilekings. IMHO if you're considering the Re-Fuse, go for it. I like them enough to buy them again.
I use this tire on my Yeti SB100 which I race and take on rough back country explorer rides. I wanted a tire that was fast enough to race but tough enough to not leave me stranded on remote rides over sharp rocks and tough terrain. I ride fast and hard and these tires have proven to be a very good tire. Yes, there are lighter tires but they are more prone to sidewall gashes. Yes there are heavier tires with even more protection from gashes. I consider these to be a very perfect sweet spot. Traction and cornering is excellent. I have it on the rear and just waiting for my old front tire to wear out a bit more to put one up front as well.
