Maxxis Ikon 3C 29” Tire

The Maxxis Ikon 3C tire is for dedicated racers looking for a dedicated race tire. Shorter knobs in the center reduce rolling resistance while the higher side knobs provide plenty of grip while cornering those loose-over-hardpacked turns. The 3C Triple Compound Technology consists of a base layer and an outer layer. The outer layer uses two compounds that are specifically formulated to lower rolling resistance and optimize tread-wear and traction, for better performance and a longer life-span. As its name suggests, the Ikon represents all that is true in Cross Country mountain bike racing.

Features:

  • Ideal for: Hard pack, loose, loose over hard, & medium
  • High-volume, lightweight true racing tire
  • 3C Triple Compound Technology
  • Size options: 29x2.20 or 29x2.35

    Comments about Maxxis Ikon 3C 29" Folding Tire:

    I wanted to experiment with a non protective sidewall and it was not good. This is a great tire if you have the sidewall protection, if you don't expect it to fail. I rode one time with it and ripped the sidewall.

    Comments about Maxxis Ikon 3C 29" Folding Tire:

    I'm a big fan of the Maxxis Ikon tires and up until now, I've only used the 29x2.2 Ikon with 3C/EXC/EXO. That particular tire was super voluminous, very durable, and weighed in at 580 grams.

    However, I decided to save 60 grams and bought this particular tire which does not have the EXO protection (3C/EXC/Maxxspeed). It is indeed lighter, but the comparison in volume to the 29x2.2 Ikon with EXO protection is pretty drastic. This tire is much smaller in volume, has shorter sidewalls, and much tighter spaced treadblocks. It should be the exact same size as the 29x2.2 with EXO protection, but they look like two completely different sizes.

    So while the weight is on par, the size and volume is much less than the tire with EXO protection. If I could do it over again, I'd suck up the extra 60 grams and just get another Ikon with the EXO protection. The added durability and volume is worth it.

    Comments about Maxxis Ikon 3C 29" Folding Tire:

    I'm running the 2.35 on the front and it's awesome. Huge volume, that you can run very low pressure for a lot of grip (when you need it) Actually lighter than advertised, I think mine is around 635 grams. It's probably not very tough, but where I ride in Norcal, it's fine. Not amazing in the mud as it's not a winter tire, but not terrible either. So far I've ran the Maxxis Aspens, Racing Ralph 2.25" and the Geax Gato 2.3s and this is definitely my favorite all-around tire. Now I just have to decide whether to get the 2.2 or 2.35 for the rear.
