Rekon Plus

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - WHAT’S HOT - $147, maxxis.com

At a width of 2.80", the Rekon Plus is Maxxis’s new 27.5-plus tire. It uses Silk­shield, a form of punc­ture pro­tec­tion that runs from bead to bead. The tire’s dura­bil­ity is also bol­stered by butyl-rub­ber in­serts that ex­tend from each bead up each side­wall. These in­serts work to pre­vent pinch flats and to add side­wall sta­bil­ity as you tear down the trail. The com­pany says the weight of the Rekon Plus with Silk­shield is 885 g.
