With beefy, widely spaced knobs designed to grab onto a wide variety of trail surfaces and conditions, the Maxxis Rekon+ EXO/TR 27.5 plus tyre has earned its reputation as a favourite among the plus-sized wheel crowd. Its siped edge knobs and ramped middle knobs pair high traction and grip with smooth rolling speed to tough it out through loose and mucky bogs without slowing you down too much during hard and fast sections.
This tubeless-ready tire mixes biting knobs with three rubber compounds to create a truly versatile ride. The casing is wrapped in a tread pattern that favours loose over hardpack, and it's equipped with moderate spacing between the centre lugs and closely clustered side knobs for sure cornering bite. Those centre lugs are also ramped to resist folding under braking and acceleration, while EXO protection fends off ride interrupting flats. You'll gain positive traction over wet roots and rocks and seamless transitions from straightaways into turns
