If you own a plus bike and ride aggressive XC and trail, the Rekon is the tyre for you.  

Who's this for:  Riders wanting a very versatile and well balanced tyre for the front or rear, depending on your terrain and riding style.

Suggested terrain:  The Rekon works great in hardpack, loose over hard, and medium dirt.

Which wheel:  

  • Maxx Speed and Dual Compound work best as the front or rear tyre of an aggressive XC or trail bike.
  • Maxx Terra works great for the front of a trail bike, for the extra grip.  Also works well as the rear tyre, but Dual Compound lasts longer on the rear.
  • EXO+ casing increases the strength of the tyre, and paired with a tyre insert like Flat Tyre Defender, makes for a super fast but still very tough rear tyre for an aggressive all mountain or enduro bike.

Rim width: 

  • 2.4" is only recommended on 27mm rims or wider.
  • 2.6" is only recommended on 30mm rims or wider
  • 2.8" is only recommended on 35mm rims or wider

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!

                  Pros?  Fast, versatile and decent weight for it's strength.

                  Cons?  Doesn't brake super well in medium and loose conditions.  That does however mean it slides very well, so if you're slap happy, or you're so fast that you don't even need to brake, then it's great!

                                                  Great trail tyre

                                                  by

                                                  I bought a 2.6 Maxx Terra front & 2.6 Maxx speed rear for my 29er trail bike.
                                                  Speed is slightly firmer than the Terra and while heavier moving up from a 2.2 Icon the grip more than pays off on my average ride. I slip far less in small loose rocks and overall have more energy to pedal and climb. It floats better in sand due to the footprint and does well in shallow mud.

                                                  Terra is slightly squidgier than Speed and while I feel slightly heavier moving up from a 2.2 Forekaster the rolling resistance is noticably less while maintaining solid grip for average ride. It feels planted in small loose rocks due to the extra width and overall I have more energy to have fun and get adventurous on longer rides.

                                                  by

                                                  Initially the tire was amazing, awesome grip/cornering and low rolling resistance. After 5 months of use the side knobs are completely shredded, was hoping for more life out of the tire.

                                                  Chucked this on the front for some extra grip in the snot and it doesn't disappoint. Good tread pattern and super light for a 2.6. 10/10 would bang

                                                  Another great option when theres already way too many options...

                                                  Rolls quick in a straight line, grips well on edge, a sideways flick of the hips and your drifting the rear, super predictable lightweight trail tire.. If is had a wireless remote that made it grow mud spikes it would score 8 stars..

                                                  Versatile.

                                                  The Rekon cuts a nice line between say an Ardent Race/ Ikon and the burlier/gripier Minion series.

                                                  If you want more bite both straight line and cornering than an Ardent this is the pick.

                                                  If you need a Minion for grip out front but want a faster rolling rear with similar traction in harder pack and less rocky conditions this is a great choice.

                                                  Go the 2.6 every time
