MAXXIS tires REKON 29 x 2.40 WT 3C MaxxTerra TR EXO+
The Maxxis Rekon is a very voluminous tire that you can use for daily tours, shred avidly in the forest and on AllMountain, but also handle detours into rougher terrain. The TR version with EXO sidewall protection is designed for driving without tube with sealing milk, but like all TR tires it can also be used with tube . We recommend the Rekon primarily on the rear wheel, which can best be combined with a 2.60 Forekaster in the front, but also with coarser profiles.
Wide Trail Casing (WT)
This special carcass construction optimizes the tread layout and tire shape on today's wider rims. Traditional tires are developed for narrow rims and get a too square shape on wide rims and thus a less than optimal performance.
WT tires are optimized for an internal rim width of 35 mm, but work excellently on all rims with an internal dimension between 30 and 40 mm.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
tube tires have many advantages: you can drive with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube , the risk of punctures is also reduced. Maxxis TR tires are better prepared for installation with sealant than other "tubeless ready" tires. The bead of the Maxxis TR tires is completely covered with a layer of rubber, just like a real UST tubeless tube . As a result, tube installation is successful for all rims with standard dimensions the first time you pump it up and with little liquid.
Note: Maxxis strongly discourages the use of sealants containing ammonia. Ammonia has been shown to attack the carcass and, depending on the amount used, can weaken it by up to 30% after just a few months. Maxxis recommends using Tire Plasma tire sealant.
The right 3C compound for Enduro and Freeride tires. Ease of movement uphill and the best grip downhill characterize this mixture as well as a long service life.
The improved EXO+ carcass is based on a robust 60TPI carcass, which is covered with abrasion-resistant rubber. In addition, the tire flanks have a reinforced and rubberized EXO puncture protection layer, while a short butyl insert is used above the tire bead. Tires with EXO+ Protection are designed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing and are ideal for the higher torque and weight that e-MTBs experience.
