Description

Developed for cross country racing on hardpack or loose over hard terrain.

As you can expect, it is a light-weight, super-fast rolling tyre so you won't be giving any to the competition on the climbs or on long gruelling straights. Considering it's low knob height, it still performs admirably if it starts to rain halfway through your ride.

Using a larger high-volume casing, the Maxxis Ikon is able to be run at lower pressures to give provide more traction than its competitors.

Using triple compound rubbers and the very robust EXO protection in the sidewall the Maxxis Ikon is a premium product.

In the 2.20" size, the Ikon is perfect on an XC bike front or rear, or run it on the back with an Ardent Race up front for a touch more traction. 2.20" size runs Maxxis' lightning fast 3c Maxx Speed compound too.

In the 2.35" size, it makes a great high volume rear tyre on a trail bike when teamed up with either an Aggressor, Minion DHF or MinionDHR 2. The 2.35" size utilises Maxxis' grippy 3C Maxx Terra compound, or the hard and quick 3C Maxx Speed

Have tried various tyres on

by -

Have tried various tyres on my hardtail and dually MTBs. Just re-tyred my Ibis Ripley with Ikons, rear first then front replacing a Crossmark. Handling more predictable, better Strava times and pedal strikes testimony to better lean angles. Have to up my fork/shock pressures to compensate. Riding Ardent Race on my hardtail this week so will be interesting to compare as I found the Ardents a little slow on initial hook up but then ok, so not as confidence inspiring in hardpack and loose over hard as the Ikons.

Fair on the front, but great on the rear.

by -

Got the 29 x 2.35 on the front and 29 x 2.2 on the rear on my hardtail, both EXOas I wanted fast, durable tyres for a spread of different conditions.. These are very good tyres overall and roll fast. They handle well generally on soft over hardpack (summer time) but as a front tyre can loose traction in the corners when really travelling fast, but is really good on the rear in dry conditions. By the way its supper fast and smooth on the road. For more control on the trails I'll get a more aggressive tyre on the front next time.

Have always liked Maxxis Ikons

by -

Have always liked Maxxis Ikons so replaced old for new/ but tubeless ready this time to reduce low pressure tyre burps on rough terrain. Great tyres , but first one I mounted will not run true despite rotating on rim and lubricating well when setting up tubeless (despite rims being true). Mounting 2nd tyre this week as other tyre now needs replacing so hoping this one mounts up better. Suspect first tyre is faulty so will contact MBDirect after mounting 2nd tyre. Would have rated 5 stars otherwise.

Running 2.35 front 2.25 rear

by -

Running 2.35 front 2.25 rear on a Stanton Slackline hard tail. Fast tyre, even reasonably usable on the road/bike path. Surprisingly grippy on dry trails but you've gotta make them work compared to something like a hand damphf. I like that quality, keeps things interesting and you get a better feel for how your inputs affect speed and grip. Also makes a good fast rear with a more aggressive front to give confidence.

by -

Switched over to these pretty soon after buying a new bike as original tyres were too soft/thin to run tubeless. Have found the Ikons to be a great tyre for cross country riding. Tread is grippy in all conditions and excellent in shedding mud on wet rides. A strong/tough tyre that's been puncture free (so far). Long wearing as well. They also feel quite fast, both on and off trail.

by -

I purchased these Ikons for BicSA's Mawson Trail ride in May of this year. I needed tyres that had grip in various riding conditions, were puncture resistant (because of the possibility of three-cornered jacks and sharp rocks which could cut the side walls), were fast on sealed and graded country roads, and could be run tubeless. It turned out that these tyres met all my requirements.
