The Maxxis Rekon Race Tyre is designed to go fast. Best suited to XC racing this semi-slick tyre has a similar tread pattern to the Maxxis Rekon but with smaller and shorter knobs. A great front and rear tyre on hardpacked terrain or as a rear tyre with a more aggressive front tyre for varying terrain.

Specs:

  • Weight: 610-670 grams
  • Folding bead
  • Tubeless-ready

Skinwall/Dark Tan Wall tyres: Maxxis has made a running change to replace all Skinwall tyres with the Dark Tan sidewalls. During the transition phase, there is a chance that stock from our suppliers may contain a mixture of both sidewall types so you may receive a shade that is different from what you expect. If this does happen please get in touch and we'll do our best to get you sorted with the option you'd prefer ASAP!

Fast sneaky exercise in lockdown

by

Recently put the Recon Race on my hardtail for some tar and XC. Its fast on the tar and grippy enough on the dirt for a rear - particularly with the larger side knobs. I haven't ridden in the wet yet (which will probably be interesting) but when you're slogging it out on the tar section to sneak off for some stealth exercise during lockdown this thing rocks!

Best advice ever!

by

My tubed tyre developed a leak after the first 6 rides, so i emailed the mtb team, asking for advice regarding changing to tubeless. I got a response the very next day, and after advising my bike year and model, they recommended tyres, tape, valves and stans. These were delivered promptly, installed by myself, and are working perfectly. No more punctured tyres. Thanks to MTB direct for their advice, prompt service, and quality product!

The wider the better!

by

I purchased a set of Skinwall 29x2.35 Rekons, my first ever Maxxis tyres for my XC bike after being a faithful Schwalbe Racing Ralph guy for over a decade.
I've been riding them now for about 5 months and all I can say is that these are awesome tyres and I can highly recommend them! The grip level on the 2.35s is unreal, and the strength of sidewalls hold up well when hitting berms hard, I can hardly notice any tyre squirm at all, certainly less than the old Racing Ralphs.
Wear is going well too, lasting longer than expected.
Great tyres
