Maxxis Ikon 3C EXO TR Tyre (Folding)
The Ikon is for true racers looking for a true lightweight race tyre. With 3C Triple Compound Technology, high-volume casing and a fast rolling tread design, the Ikon provides exemplary performance in all riding conditions.
• Bead: Foldable beads stay tight to the rim but are lighter weight and easier to transport. The bead is made of an Aramid or Kevlar material.
• 3C Maxx Speed compound: Used primarily in cross country and enduro tyres, the two compounds in the outer layer are specially formulated to lower rolling resistance and optimize tread wear and traction.
• Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty. The square bead profile of our TR tires is designed to work with the broad range of tubeless rims available on the market today. Our TR tyres use a special construction which allows the use of liquid sealants to make them airtight and to help prevent punctures. If needed, Maxxis TR tyres can also be used with an inner tube.
• EXO Protection: An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven material is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected.
