MAXXIS tires REKON 29 x 2.40 WT Dual Compound TR EXO
The Maxxis Rekon is a very voluminous tire that you can use for your daily tour, eager to shred in the forest and at the AllMountain, but also make a detour to the coarser terrain. The TR version with EXO sidewall protection is designed for driving without a tube with sealing milk, but like all TR tires can also be driven with a tube . We recommend the Rekon primarily on the rear wheel, which can best be combined with a 2.60 Forekaster at the front, but also with coarser profiles.

Wide Trail Casing (WT)
This special carcass design optimizes the profile layout and tire shape on today's wider wheel rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and get on square wheels too angular shape and thus not exactly optimal performance.
WT tires are optimized for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work perfectly on all rims with an internal dimension between 30 and 40 mm.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
Tube loose 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 breakdown risk also decreases. MAXXIS TR tires are better prepared for installation with sealant than other "tubeless ready" tires. The bead of the TR tire is like a real UST tube peeling completely covered with a rubber layer. As a result, tube assembly on all rims with standard dimensions is already successful on initial inflation and with little liquid.
Even "normal" MAXXIS MTB tires can be mounted like other Tubeless tires with sealant as the carcass fabrics are very dense.
Officially released for tubeless assembly and guaranteed by MAXXIS are only the new MAXXIS TR models. Tubeless mounting of other models is at your own risk.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. Maxxis plans the arrangement of the compounds according to the desired properties of the tires.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewall of various MTB tires. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tires remains convincingly good.
Note: We strongly advise against the use of ammonia-containing sealant. Ammonia has been shown to attack the carcass and, depending on the amount used, can weaken it by up to 30% after only a few months.
