This is a borderline perfect 29er tire. The much heralded Maxxix Ikon 3C/EXO boasts their 3C Triple Compound with three distinct layers of rubber in the tread for optimal performance. EXO technology uses an extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls mixed with a high 120 TPI to create a lightweight, long lasting tire that you can dish out an old-school prison beating on and they'll keep on rolling fast.
120 tpi casing is tough and ultra grippy on the trail
590g--very light for a 29er tire
EXO technology strengthens the sidewall to resist cuts and tears for additional durability
