Rekon 3C/EXO/TR Tire

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.

  • Aggressive trail tire with higher volume design
  • 2.6in width provides increased bump compliance and grip
  • Not a plus-sized tire, so it doesn't feel squishy or vague
  • 3C Maxx Terra compound maximizes grip with softer shoulder
  • EXO sidewall protection against cuts, slits, and abrasion
  • Tubeless-ready casing allows you to lower tire pressure
  • 120 TPI casing for a more supple feel on the trail
  • Item #MXX006X

I wrote an initial impressions take on these last March and have ridden them since in the Wasatch and in Moab and Hurricane, Utah. They are durable and they are true to size. As with other Maxxis tires I've used, they set up tubeless easily, as do most tires these days. To get close to the ETRTO size, you have to let them stretch a bit, but that's no big deal. I ran them on 30 mm inner rims and 27 mm as well and they aren't noticeably different on the narrower rims. On the back, they have pretty good climbing traction, but due to the small knobs on the edges, they do not hook up climbing over the off axis rocky steps you find in southern Utah. On the front, they steer pretty much like any other small knob tire, which is to say, not very well. They just don't have the side knobs for it and physics wins. On my timed climbs (20 to 45 minutes), they were actually slightly slower than 29x2.35 Nobby Nics that I have and don't grip as well under any circumstances, but they do wear better than the NoNis. For Utah, I would not recommend them.

Works great in the dry and loose stuff here in Arizona, absolutely one of the best tires of i have ever ridden. Doesn't seem to have the dead zones my previous ardent and ardent race tires had, these give you plenty of warning when you're near the limit.

Good all around performance

Familiarity:

Mounted them on my Spank 30 mm rims, pumped up to 40 psi, held pressure over night without sealant, good sign. Currently running them on my hardtail with 12 to 15 psi no problems at all, happy with the performance, good traction and light weight. I would buy another set for sure!

Perfect Tire For A Trail Bike

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I am running the Rekon front and rear and have to say this is my favorite tire period. The Rekon rolls very fast, carves, grips, has great traction when pedaling and brakes well. In spite of the fact that the tread collects mud on wet rides, the Rekon is still ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, because it does so many things so well, just like a tail tire needs to do.

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.

HTLT? Fit rear ?

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.

What is the difference in EXO vs EXO+?

>Rating:

Anyone have any experience on these these in Park City and Corner Canyon moon dust? I'm looking for a faster rolling rear tire while still keeping decent climbing and braking traction. I've ridden the plus size on a Pivot Switchblade and they seemed to do well, so curious about the 2.6 on my 29er. I'm currently on Aggressor 2.5 and like it but looking for something a little less burly.
