Channel aggression into control.

Designed for aggressive trail riders, the Maxxis Rekon 3C/EXO/TR 29 x 2.6in Tire features a high volume design, which allows you to drastically lower tire pressure to gain the benefits of bump compliance and enhanced traction while rallying over rock gardens, plunging into steep descents, and railing around corners. Although it's 3/10ths of an inch wider than a standard trail tire, it doesn't feel as squishy or vague as its plus-sized brethren in the range of 2.8 to 3 inches.

The Rekon emulates the fast-rolling speed of the XC-inspired Ikon, but it's beefed up with wide knobs down the middle for additional control under heavy braking and L-shaped side knobs to keep you stable while cornering at high speeds. As you'd expect from a tire of this pedigree, it's developed to be set up in tubeless configuration, so you can gain all the benefits of running lower pressures, plus self-sealing reassurance if you happen to run over a sharp object.

This particular Rekon features the 3C Maxx Terra compound, which uses a softer shoulder for exceptional grip while cornering, complete with a medium compound down the center to retain its fast-rolling capabilities. Underneath both compounds is a harder rubber that resists breakdown as you wear through the tire over time. And to ensure it's ready for aggressive trail thrashings, EXO sidewall protection ensures peace of mind while riding aggressively on notoriously rocky terrain.

Great Bikepacking tire

    Light, Durable, Loads of grip, but low rolling resistance. I use these on my Hightower when I do multiday singletrack bikepacking trips. Clearance is tight, but they do fit on a 30mm rim. If you are looking for a great tire that offers lots of grip but low rolling resistance, look no further.

    Just got a pair, 29x2.6 and mounted them on two different rims, 30mm inner and 27mm inner. Weights were 790/810 grams. Width on both rims initially at about 2.52" at 40 psi to stretch the casings out. Extremely easy to mount, and with no sealant, hold air well. I'll report once I lower the pressure and ride them.
    Mounted on Giant Trance 29 Pro with lots of room, but I could almost get a true 2.8 on those.

    Light, fast rolling tires

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are great tires for an adventure bike - the one you ride up and down all day.

    I think the tread pattern is more well-suited to the rear than the front, but for the moment I don't think a better front tire of the same volume is available. I believe that a 2.6 WT DHF is coming soon. The current 2.5 WT DHF is smaller and IMHO better paired with the Agressor 2.5 WT.

    For extra peace of mind, I run a Huck Norris insert in my back tire.
