Details

    The Tusk Recon Hybrid® tire combines the benefits of a soft, sticky trials tire with an off-road/motocross tire for optimal performance for single track and technical enduro use. The soft, gummy rubber compound hooks up and conforms to rocks and roots like a trials tire, but has a motocross inspired tread design to perform well in mud, sand, and aggressive cornering and braking. Another Hybrid feature is in the carcass; it is much softer than a standard off-road/motocross tire, but handles better than a trials tire to offer ideal impact absorption, traction, and protection through gnarly, technical terrain. The Recon hybrid® tire instills confidence in even the most technical conditions.
  • High-performance off-road Hybrid tire designed for technical single track and extreme enduro riding.
  • Soft, sticky rubber compound hooks up and conforms to rocks and roots like a trials tire, but has a motocross inspired tread design to perform well in mud, sand, and aggressive cornering and braking.
  • Carcass rigidity is much softer than a standard off-road/motocross tire but better handling than a trials tire to offer optimal impact absorption, traction, and protection through gnarly, technical terrain.
  • Rubber compound is not only soft and sticky, but has been formulated for maximum wear.
  • For maximum off-road performance, the Recon is not DOT compliant.

Caution regarding the 120/100 depth
Happy with the grip and tread wear so far. However, the 120/100 tire is extremely tall. So much so the added circumference of the wheel has raised my gearing. 1st is now 1.5 and so on. The change has been enough for me to start looking at replacement tires or maybe trying a 120/90 recon.

Changed My 125
This tire is incredible, absolutely monstrous improvement for hare scrambles on my YZ125. I have run 2 races on this tire, and it just pushes through anything with unbelievable traction on everything except heavy mud. One of the races consisted of a track that was an eternal mud bog due to torrential rain on an already very worn in track the night before. Although this tire definitely was not made for it, it even had decent performance in that as well. It is unstoppable. Tire wear after two races is almost non-existant. As long as the price stays low on this tire I will continue to keep running it, and I am still waiting for the matching front to come out.

It's good. Strange that it reminded me of the D606 which I don't like. I'll try a different tire before I buy another. Not that it's bad...just not all time.

Good tire for the price
I run mine with a tubliss in the rear. 6 psi. Race B class harescrambles. Tire has some roll to it with it having a softer sidewall, and I wish it hooked up better in grass track, but in the woods with roots, rocks, and slimy single track it does very well. I've put 2 races on one tire (~50 mi) and it really has only rolled the leading edge over. No cuts or chunked knobs. This was all on very rocky, ozark terrain. Going to keep buying them until I run into a problem.

Good traction everywhere, not for fast cornering or mud. Tire needs to be broken in for a few hrs
Great on the rocks and roots here, even after our record rainfall in Seattle area. Not so great in mud, and not that great at cornering. But I’m not a racer, I only ride technical single track so it’s great for me. I will be buying this tire again.

Get one!
Love it! Coming off the dunlop AT81 that came stock on my bike this tire is way better. It grabbed everything i threw at it and chugged along. Climbed up near all rock surfaces and i just kept trying harder lines every chance i could. Only had one incident where it slipped but that was some slick mud i couldnt stand in either. Great tire especially for the cost so far (50 miles of single track)

Can you use these with tubliss? Many off-road tires have ribs inside the tire making it difficult or impossible for the tubliss to seal.
Daniel T on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I installed with TUBLISS and it works great. At 8 PSI it had great traction and the sidewalls held their structure well.

Ty S on Aug 16, 2019

Is this a DOT compliant?
Ian S on Aug 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is not. For optimal off-road performance we chose not to get a DOT rating. A DOT rating will require a stiffer carcass and would hurt the off-road performance.
How strong is the side wall. Can you run lower air pressure. Will it run flat?
Curt S on Oct 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The tire is amazing hooks almost anywhere. I’ve had it at 5psi with heavy tube. But normally run it around 9-11psi depending on conditions. I will definitely be buying again. And the wear is pretty amazing also.
My bike comes factory with a 100/100-18. Is it okay to go up to the 110/100-18 for this tire?
Elijah G on Feb 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I ride trails. I have the recon in the 120-100-18 and it’s been a great tire. I have five bikes in the garage and three have this tire on them.
So Vegas Romaniac has a pretty negative review on this tire, and states it changed the gearing on his bike in a bad way because the diameter is so much larger (120 / 18 tire) than other tires.... he demonstrates this with a string measures the diameter vs. other popular tires... can anyone else share feedback? any found the 110/ 18 to be too larger in diameter also
Douglas D on Oct 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I stuffed this tire ( with a Nitro mousse) into my '19 Kawasaki KLX140G play bike and and entered an event in New Hampshire. The 4.5 mile course was was all single track with slippery roots, rocks, and leaves. It was full of tight corners and short steep climbs and descents. I thought the tire worked awesome, particularly on the leafy root climbs, but I never got out of third gear! I never noticed it to effect the gearing.
Will this tire fit a 2013 CRF 250R? Or will it be too wide
ANDY H on Oct 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you have enough room to put a 110 wide tire on your bike it will work, I know the width on your bike is a 100 . I can tell you this much it fits like a motocross style tire it’s not like a balloon like most trials tire and it does hook up. I’m happy with the tire for the short time of owning it.
width of the 110 90 19?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From what I have from side knob to side knob is about 14 cm. Sidewall to sidewall is about 12cm and 4.5 cm tall. Keep in mind I have riden with tubliss with low pressures so it has flattened it self out.

Randy C on Oct 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Tusk Recon is a 4 Ply Rated tire.
