I have been running the 2.6 Rekon for about 8 months. No tire can do everything very well, bit this tire comes pretty close. Where the Rekon excels is finding a balance between traction, grip, braking and rolling resistance. Unless there is mud or greasy clay this tire will get you up tech climbs. The Rekon grips and drifts predictably. You will need to dial in your psi or the tire can squirm and burped when railed. Once you find your sweet spot, it is very reliable.
Is the Rekon a good choice for enduro- No
Is the Rekon a good choice for XC racing- probably not
...But I would use it for just about anything in between.
