Versatile: the Rekon folding tyre by Maxxis
The Maxxis Rekon 2.60 is a very voluminous tyre that you can use for daily touring, eagerly in the forest and all-mountain shredding, but also for a detour onto rougher off-road terrain. The TR version with EXO sidewall protection is designed to be ridden tubeless with sealant, but can of course also be ridden with a tube. Maxxis recommends the Rekon primarily for the rear wheel, which is best combined with a 2.6 Forekaster in the front, but more aggressive tyre treads work as well.
Note from the manufacturer:
Maxxis strongly advises against the use of ammonia-based sealant. Ammonia has been proven to attack the carcass and can weaken it by up to 30% after only a few months, depending on the amount used.

At Maxxis, the 3C tread is moulded from 3 different rubber compounds in one piece and is not subsequently assembled from two strips. Therefore, the treads can be shaped exactly according to the requirements of the respective tyre model, thus optimising the riding characteristics.
The Freeride version of Maxxis 3C compounds. More grip and traction than the 3C MaxxSpeed compound, with less rolling resistance and longer durability than 3C MaxxGrip. The ideal Enduro and Freeride mixture, because it combines good rolling resistance uphill with great grip on the descent.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewalls of various Maxxis MTB tyres. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tyres remains convincingly good.
Wide Trail (WT)
This design optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed for narrower rims and become square on wider rims, resulting in a less than optimal performance. WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work excellently on all rims with an inner dimension of 30 - 40 mm. Concerns tyres with a width of 2.4" and above.
Tubeless tyres have many advantages: you can ride with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube, the risk of punctures is reduced. Maxxis TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other " tubeless ready" tyres. The bead of the Maxxis TR tyres is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tyre. As a result, tubeless mounting is successful for all rims with standard dimensions even during the first inflation and with little liquid.
