Pretty good

I like these OK. I typically run a Rekon 2.4 up front with Ikon 2.35 rear for training and marathon/ultra races. I picked these up in 2.35 as a faster rear option. I didn't notice much of a speed pick up. Maybe a little but nothing definitive even with a power meter. They do, however, break loose much earlier than the Ikons on the l. At least for my riding, the tradeoff isn't worth it - there isn't enough of a speed increase. I think next year I'll stick with Ikons rear for more consistent traction and try Aspens for when I need a faster rear option now that they offer a wide trail version.

Bad Luck with Rekon Race Tires - Multiple Failures

I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same bad luck with Rekon Race tires as me. I've had four flats/failures of Rekon Race tires within the last 4 months, two while XC riding/training, and an unfortunate double flat in a local XC race where I ended up needing to run across the finish line to finish. I've switched back to Ardent Race tires which I'd been running prior to using Rekon Race tires. My experience with the Ardent Race tires is that while they are a bit heavier and have more rolling resistance, they have a fraction of the failures and have been much more durable/less failure prone which, to me, more than compensates for the their comparative slight disadvantage in weight and rolling resistance.

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.
