The Rekon is an aggressive trail tyre for intermediate and technical terrain. Wide knobs down the middle provide control under braking, and L-shaped side knobs assure support when carving loose turns. With confidence like this, the Rekon lets you ride more and scout less.
Foldable Bead - Foldable beads also keep the tyre secured to the rim but are lighter weight and easily transported. The bead is made of spun aramid or Kevlar Fibers.
Dual Compound - Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
MaxxTerra - An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip
Exo - An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres.
This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected.
Tubeless Ready (TR) - Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tyres: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless ready.
EXO+ - Their EXO+ construction combines two of our best puncture protection materials:
SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.
Threads Per Inch (TPI) - The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tyre’s casing. Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tyre. Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
