Maxxis Ikon 3C EXO 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 will 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. This select model of the Ikon 3C features EXO protection which is an extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant densely woven fabric that’s added to the sidewalls to greatly reduce the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions, while remaining lightweight and flexible. As its name suggests, the Ikon represents all that is true in Cross Country mountain bike racing.

    Comments about Maxxis Ikon 3C Exo 29" Tire:

    I use this as a rear tire on the trails of southwest Virginia, and it has served me well. The reduced rotational weight (compared to the stock Schwalbe rapid robs that came with my bike) is really noticeable - I'm able to power through some technical sections on climbs that I previously couldn't clear. This tire has awesome rolling resistance, yet holds a line quite well. I have less than 100 miles on it, but the tire basically still looks brand new.

    Great tire in dry, loose/damp condition. Sticks great on corners. Like the design and the EXO/3D tech. Only con is that it does not clean well in wet conditions., But overall great front tire

    Comments about Maxxis Ikon 3C Exo 29" Tire:

    Lots of racers like this tire, it seems. I even hear folks running it at the TSE, but I just don't see how. I'm in Pittsburgh, and I know how to use a tire, but this thing just slides all over the place when things get at all greasy. Has shallow knobs that don't wrap around the tire very much, decreasing what grip there is.
    However, on dry hardpack, like Raystown, it's great. A cyclocross tire would be fine there, though.
