Float Over Techy Tracks
The Maxxis Rekon Wide Trail 3C/EXO+/TR 29" MTB Tire is a light-duty trail tire designed to go fast in technical terrain. The Rekon tread features wide knobs down the middle of the tread which provides control under braking. It also has L-shaped side knobs that assure support when carving loose turns.
All Maxxis tires 2.40" and up are considered WT or Wide Trail according to Maxxis whether or not they are labeled WT. Wide Trail (WT) sizes are optimized for 35mm inner width rims.
These Rekons are made with 3C MaxxTerra, which is a triple rubber compound with better treadwear and less rolling resistance than 3C MaxxGrip (featured in other Maxxis tires).
The Maxxis Rekon Wide Trail also features EXO plus, which is an additional SilkShield layer implemented to increase puncture protection, sidewall durability, and resistance to pinch flats.

After one season the tires have performed so well I will be purchasing a replacement.
I coach 3 x per week and ride and race in addition to the coaching. I immediately felt the grip and control of these tires. It gave my bike that Brand New feel again and I was wiping and hoping through the trails. I did encounter a unexpected deceleration while riding including a sideways slide. Through this I managed to damage the sidewall of the rear tire creating a scuff deep enough to leak and the rubber portion of my wheel now has a side to side deflection that is visually obvious. Since the tread is excellent yet, I put a tube in the rear for now. The tire damage is not to suggest these are weak or low quality tires. I encountered a "road hazard" on the trails and the tires stuck harder than the bike. I will purchase a replacement of the same model. Tires are mounted tubeless on a Fuel Ex 9.8. I ride a mix of styles on xc and trail clusters.
I use this tire in a 'dual sport' mode. Half my riding is heavy braking and bad lines that we coaches encounter while sweeping NICA student athletes. The other half is pounding singletrack. The EXO+ is very appreciated. I have many sidewall scuffs after half a season but no rips, stretches or weeping sealant. I run 19 lbs for a 185 lb rider on a FuelEx 9.7. the wide rims really hold the 2.6 wide tires with out rolling the tire on hard turns.
