Bigger Tires For Bigger Adventures
The tubeless-ready REKON+ 29" 3C/EXO/TR MTB Tire from Maxxis has the versatility to tackle a wide range of trail conditions thanks to a variable knob profile that includes a diffusion of hefty knobs for clean cornering and beveled knobs for fast rolling. Plus-sized with a malleable casing and grippy 3C Maxx Terra compound, this tire provides a stable, smooth ride over trail irregularities. Punctures and tears are less of a concern with this tire thanks to EXO protection.

Overweight and Undersized
I've good luck with Maxxis MTB tires in general, and have never had any issues mounting them tubeless on various widths of WTB KOM rims, so I thought the Rekon 29x2.8 would be a good fit for the front of my rigid Jones LWB, since the Maxxis Chronicle 29x3.0 has been discontinued. My sample came in at 995g, well over the claimed weight of 919g. Several weeks after mounting the tire measures 2.56" casing width, and 2.61" outer knob width on an i35 rim, well under the claimed 71mm/2.79" width. That said, the ease of tubeless setup, the durability, and good availability keeps me coming back to Maxxis MTB tires.
