Switched to a pair of Rekons after 2 seasons on minions. I immediately noticed the speed boost. I loved the DHF and Minion pair but it dragged a bit on hard pack. I knew Iï¿½d be giving up some traction but seemed to have hit a limit on Strava times. Put these on and was hitting a few PRs for the summer. Definitely could not be as aggressive as I was, especially on tight non bermed corners. No surprise I suppose. Makes me wonder if there is something between Rekon and DHF for the front tire. For now Iï¿½ll enjoy these until itï¿½s time to replace.
Light weight ish
Went with the 2.6 WT to help float through the dry Michigan summer.
I use this tire as an all around trail and XC race tire. It's EXO sidewall protection is a must where I live due to the sharp rocks that litter our trails. The weight is not super light, but it is very respectable given the sidewall protection, which to this point has never let me down. The wear of the dual compound is much better than the 3C which seems to show signs of degradation within 3-4 rides. I love the looks of the tanwall as well.
