No more turning around.
If you and your XC-leaning trail bike enjoy testing the limits of your 125mm suspension, you know the right tire can go a long way. When you notice that yours are looking more than a little worn this season, replace them with the Maxxis Rekon EXO/TR Tire and get back out on the trails. If you aren't racing, you likely won't miss the higher TPI and thus lower rolling resistance of the pricier Rekon 3C. The Rekon EXO/TR's step-down in price will leave plenty left over in your upgrade fund, without translating to a significant compromise in ride quality for most.
As you push your earnest frame onto downhill-only trails behind your hooting and hollering herd of enduro-loving pals, the Rekon's generous center knobs will grip reassuringly when you throw the brake levers heading into a nasty rock garden. Once you clear it, the L-shaped side knobs will help you make up time and catch up to the group as you rail around tacky berms. Maxxis' capable EXO protection also makes an appearance in the Rekon, protecting you from ride-slowing flats and giving you license to take your bike anywhere that looks enticing.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After being excited about new tires on a new bike this is not what I expected. If you are looking for something even somewhat durable don't look here. Thin sidewalls and minimal protection mean countless trail issues both down and uphill. I had this tire come on the rear of my Pivot 5.5 and blew this up 5 times on one ride (running proper PSI on a smooth trail). If you are looking for something burlier and reliable check out the Minion series by Maxxis or the Nobby Nic by schwalbe for great traction (apex edition) for increased protection.
