Plus-sized traction.

The Maxxis Rekon 3C/EXO/TR 27.5 Plus Tire boasts beefy, widely spaced knobs built to carve all manner of trail conditions. With siped knob edges and ramped middle knobs, the Rekon pairs high-traction grip with fast rolling speed, and wraps it all up in a plush plus-sized package to smoothly rock everything from hard pack to loose and dusty..

This tubeless-ready tire mixes biting knobs with three rubber compounds to create a truly versatile ride. The supple 120 TPI casing is wrapped in a tread pattern that favors loose over hardpack to medium conditions with moderate spacing between the center lugs and closely clustered side knobs for sure cornering bite. Those center lugs are also ramped to resist folding under braking and acceleration and the 3C Max Speed compound bridges the traction gap from packed to loose terrain.

Maxxis fashions the center knobs from a harder compound to resist wear and flex while the supple casing allows the tire to conform to irregularities in the trail and lets the softer side compound to hook up and grip. As a result, you gain a positive traction over wet roots and rocks and seamless transitions from straightaways into turns.

  • Increased volume for better contact patch over versatile trail conditions
  • 3C Maxx Speed compound increases grip
  • Supple casing for a smooth ride
  • Specific knob shaping makes the most of more volume and less pressure

Flexible plus option

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

About 50 miles in on loose and rocky trails. Good grip and predictable cornering. I have this on the front of a stumpjumper 6fattie bike and have likes it so far. You do give up a little traction compared to a higher volume option but it is faster and corners great.

Excellent + Option

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

While it is not XC fast, this tire offers a lot of bite on the trails without too much rolling resistance. I have this set up on a Specialized Stumpjumper 6 fattie as a rear tire and am pretty stoked on it when paired with the DHF front. I am Bias, I have been running Maxxis for a few years now, and have been stoked on the quality, durability, and fantastic grip.

Durable without an insane weight penalty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Recently installed the Maxxis Rekon + on my Ibis due to the lack of durability on my last set of plus tires. After a lot of frustration with casing punctures with my other tire manufacturer I made the move to the Rekon + and have been extremely happy with the quality and performance.

If you have any questions regarding this tire or any other options for that matter, contact me directly anytime!
