Why We Like The Rekon 3C/EXO/TR Tire
The Maxxis Rekon 3C/EXO/TR 27.5+ 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 conditions without slowing you down on hardpack. It features 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. The softer side compound hooks-up and grips while leaning through switchbacks or bogging through loose trails. As a result, you gain a positive traction over wet roots and rocks and seamless transitions from straightaways into turns.
