Rekon Wide Trail 3C/EXO+/TR 27.5in Tire

Color:MaxxTerra, 3C/EXO+/TR



Rekon 3C/EXO/TR Tire

Inspired by the all-around versatility of the Ikon, Maxxis' eager Rekon 3C/EXO/TR Tire was made to venture off smooth hardpack and onto more technical trail and all-mountain environs. This beefed-up version of a classic comes with a fast-rolling 120 TPI and capable triple-compound construction that will keep you and your nimble XC steed skipping over singletrack built for bikes far beastlier than yours.

To equip the Rekon for chunkier terrain, Maxxis combines wide center knobs with L-shaped side knobs to give you grip and control while braking and stability when you're railing around tacky berms. You already know your overachieving 120mm XC bike can handle its fair share of bumps, so with the Rekon's EXO reinforcement, you'll be able to steer straight onto the more technical lines and downhill-only trails knowing your frame is backed up by some seriously tough rubber.


  • Test your XC bike on techy, committing trails with the Rekon
  • 3C Maxx Terra compound grips with low rolling resistance
  • EXO protection and tubeless-ready design ward off flats
  • Knob profile blends braking control with cornering stability

New Rekon Exo+ much heavier

First off I'm a Rekon fan. They have a great combo of rolling speed and grip for me. I've used the Dual compound in the 2.6 size for years. That tire weighs about 850g or so. It takes a long time to wear out. And its 60tpi construction is more durable. In over 5 years of using the Rekon never had a flat of any kind at around 20psi. On the rear extra grip isn't as much of an issue compared to the front. So last year I tried the original Exo+ in the same 2.6 size for 27.5. for the front. Loved it. Had better braking more of a damped feel. Old Rekon Exo+ gets 5 stars. Went to buy another set of Exo+, found out after the fact there is a new version of Exo+. It goes from 120tpi to 60tpi like the dual compound and loses the silk shield in the sidewall like the original Exo+ had. It adds a butyl liner on the bead supposedly to reduce pinch flats. So the sidewall is no different than my dual compound Rekon. Just received the new Exo+ from Competitive Cyclist (quick shipping always good experience) but the new Exo+ weighs 1010g in the 2.6. The old Exo+ weighed 870g. I read an article that said the new Exo+ is only 5% heavier. No way. At least for the Rekon the difference is 16% heavier. FYI, I just got the 3C Max Terra regular Exo Rekon 2.6 and it only weighs 830g. Will try that up front with the dual compound in the rear. I'm saving 3/4 of pound of rotational weight. I like the Rekon. I like the 2.6 size which is really about 2.5 as is par for the course for Maxxis. But I do not like the new version of the Exo+. The old was much better. Competitive Cyclist on the item description for the Exo+ says the claimed weight is 741g. I knew that was way off. They need to fix that. On Maxxis site they say the weight is 948g. I should looked at their site first. But the tire is still a good bit heavier than Maxxis claims
