Maxxis' Ikon, as the name suggests, is one tire that other treads look up to. Great for everything from dry hardpack to loose, this light tire still gives you high-volume and a 2.2-inch width for hold-your-line control. This member of Maxxis' eXCeption Series of tires features a combination of a softer 62a compound and supple 120 TPI casing. This makes for a lighter model tire and enhances cornering, braking, and acceleration. Run it on the front, back, or both.

This tire hooks up in all conditions. It performs well on short root infested climbs at walnut creek, rocks the ridge on the southern traverse, flows the mojo at tasali and handles the long downhills of massanutten and douthat with all that you can throw at it.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
