Mountain Bike Rider
MBR.co.uk asked one of their readers their opinion on the Ikon Plus after riding it for 2 years, giving it a total score of 9/10:
“Used on front or rear?
Durability. How well have they stood up to use?
Very well; almost no wear.
Performance. Traction, cornering, braking, puncture protection, acceleration, rolling speed etc?
Traction and cornering is flawless, made me a better rider. Had two big punctures and riding tubeless, they sealed very well. I like the wideness, I ride very technical trails so grip is very important, but I can also use the bike for road trips when I pump them really hard.
What sort of conditions does this tyre work best in? Dry, mud, rock, loose, firm etc
Every condition is fine, but dry better then wet. I ride 27.5+ front, 29in minion DHR in the back. I really like the wideness of the tyre and depending on the conditions I play with the pressure, but it keeps doing the job very well.
How is the sizing of the tyre – ie accurate, bit narrow, bit big etc?
Perfect for my wide rim.
Have you run the tyre as tubeless? If so, how was tubeless installation?
Flawless and easy. Not once in two years have I had to change them.”

Ikon Plus Tyre Reviews
Sometimes the best reviews come from riders just like you. Take a look at our user reviews below.
Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, October 2019:
“Put these ikon+ on my Whyte 905 for summer as the rekon+ fitted have a more aggressive pattern. Ikons roll easier make less noise & grip well in dry & on hard pack would definitely recommend if you run a plus tyre bike.”
Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, November 2019:
“I mounted the Maxxis Icon on a Raceface arc 40 rim. Mounting was easy and the tire sealed on the first try. I paired it with a Maxxis Rekon up front and it feels like a great combination of low rolling resistance and great traction.”
