I am loving it as an Ikon replacement. RekonRekon Race, frontrear.
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.
