Have you got a need for speed? The latest in offering in Maxxis’ long line of World Cup-winning XC tires is the new Rekon Race! This semi-slick tire borrows its tread design from the trail version of the Rekon, but with smaller and shorter knobs for a focus on all-out speed. Designed for fast hardpack trails, the Rekon Race is an ideal XC or marathon race tire for this type of terrain. Use it as a rear tyre paired with something more aggressive up front, or run it front and rear for a speedy setup for short track racing. The Rekon Race uses a supple casing that conforms to trail obstacles for smooth damping and paired with Maxxis's Dual Compound rubber it strikes a good balance between consistent traction and long wear life. The well proven EXO sidewall is there to add in a level of reliability and confidence too.
