The latest in our 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. Use it as a rear tire paired with a more aggressive front tread, or front and rear for short track racing.
THREADS PER INCH (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’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 tire.Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply,as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
Tubeless tires 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 tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube.
Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires:Tubeless Road, Tubular, and Tubeless Ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tire will void the warranty.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires.
This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C Maxx-Terra is softer and offers more traction
than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes the tire’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tires are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width, but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference. All Maxxis tires 2.40” and up are considered WT.CASING
