Maxxis Rekon - Balance of Traction and Speed

For my style of riding; pretty much a mixture of everything (excluding wet conditions), the Rekon is a great tire and has become my go-to rear tire choice. When comparing to more aggressive rear tires like the Ardent or DHR II, the Rekon lacks some cornering traction, but in my mind, is a sacrifice I can forfeit.

My only complaint, along with all 3C Maxxis tires, is while the compound provide great traction, the tire wear is significantly faster than the 2-ply versions.

Great tire in the right conditions.

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.

Good all-rounder

I've used this tire on mixed terrain, with rocks, dirt, roots, and hardpack mud. It offers better traction than Ikons but feels a little smoother rolling than Ardents.

Good tire for mixed terrain

This tire is good for mixed terrrain, and hooks up well in moist dirt and firm mud. It's not the fastest or most aggressive tread, but hits a nice do-it-all sweet spot. I mounted these on relatively wide (28mm internal) rims without wrestling the tire bead too much, and my high volume pump inflated them in one go...I can't comment on long term durability yet, but have found the Maxxis EXO compound effective in preventing sidewall cuts with other tires.

Not perfect but close!

Bike Santa Cruz tallboy 29er

So far so good Running DHF in front and Rekon in rear. Ive run the ardent, ardent race, ikon and cross mark in rear and like this the best. Good traction & braking and fast rolling. 4 stars due to low profile tread which is going to wear out quickly! Wish the knob height was higher like the 27.5 version!

Great tire for loose over hard dirt. Fast when you need it and grabs in the corners

Love Maxxis tires. Used to run the Ikon but this is a better all around tire for my riding conditions. Has better cornering than the Ikons

Great tire

Great rolling tire works well with xc style riding and has good enough puncture protection to ride Rocky Mountain terrian.
