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 tires

                                                  by

                                                  Easy to mount tubeless. Good grip on all terrain, happy so far.

                                                  Awesome tyres

                                                  by

                                                  Love these tyres they went on relatively easy for a new pair of tyres. Very nice light, fast rolling and smooth.

                                                  Fast Tyre for Dry Hardpack Trails

                                                  by

                                                  Running a Reign Advanced geared more towards Enduro, but more trail style riding. I started shopping around for something with a little less rolling resistance on hard pack. Coming off a DHR/DHF2, I chose 2.6 Rekon/Dissector combo after deciding this combo would be the best for my application. The tyre was a pinch to fit, 60mL of sealant, pumped up with a floor pump no worries. First thing I noticed was how much easier it was to climb. Much less parasitic drag than the DHR, much faster on flats and downhills. A little less inspiring on the rear brake, with a tendency to get a bit squiggly on loose pack as well as locking up under braking much earlier, but a little more modulation is worth the speed and efficiency on hard pack. Handles rock gardens well, with the EXO+ casing give a bit more confidence when it starts to get rough. Tyre is predictable rolling over with no sudden change in grip or wash when transitioning between tread lines. Great tyre for fast, tight, dry trails.

                                                  No more tired tyre with tried tier 1 tyre!

                                                  To replace my tired tyre, this tier 1 tire is tried and meets all tyre expectations! Maxxis does it again!
                                                  Also your website is as fluid as a freshly cambered flow trail. Thank you!

                                                  Great grip upgrade for XC

                                                  by

                                                  Had a Forekaster on the front of my YT Izzo which felt a bit skittish. Upped the width and went to (what I believe is) a slightly more aggressive tread and softer compound with the Rekon Max Terra. Bike feels more centred and feeling more confident in the corners after a few front wash outs. Definitely worth an upgrade and little discernible penalty on rolling resistance if you are after an XC tyre with a better grip profile.

                                                  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.
