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.

Great economical tire
Great tire for the money.
Gets good traction on dry or wetter single track. However very slick in grassy areas.

27 miles of MX Track left a good, first impression
Mounted the 110 rear over a HD tube, inflated to 12 PSI, rode 27 miles of MX Track as hamfisted as I could (testing the jetting on a rebuilt carb). Tire hooked up and tracked well on loose and packed surfaces, never felt out of control. Great value.

A really good tire with lots of value.
I like trying tires. I've tried almost all the rear gummy and hybrid tires. The Recon is at the top of my list with the IBEX after about 15 hours so far. It's not quite as soft and sticky as the IBEX bit it holds up better and longer. Add the price factor and it's true value is impressive.

So far so good
Only one ride on the bike so far but a massive improvement over the stock tires. The tires gripped well over the rocks and kept the rear planted. I paired these with Tubliss set at 6psi. We will see how they wear but I like the increased traction so far.

Fit with Nitro Mousse
Ordered and installed with a new 140 soft Nitro Mousse, 2.5 tubes of Nitro lube in the tire and .5 on the Mousse. Terrain was mixed and mostly all dry. Tire did well on packed dry clay, wet mud, freshly groomed dirt and large flat rocks. Had issues gripping jagged rock and digging down in golf ball size stones. Tread life is good, better than other gummy tires, 10 hours of hard riding and the corners are barely rounded off. Feels like the tread rows are too close to each other to really dig down and get traction. Honestly depends on your expectations of a $55 tire .... if it were $80 it would have been rated much lower. I will not buy again - will go back to Ibex or try an IRC VE33S

I think the performance, to price to, to longevity is decent so far.
After one solid ride, I can’t complain. It was a rough, rocky, technical ride, that had everything but mud. I didn’t baby the tire, but also don’t try to rip them apart either. It seemed to lack a little breaking, but hooked up great on the mono rock, and river rock. 50 miles, and 12,600 vertical feet for the ride.

Recon Works
I needed a new rear tire and this advertisement came over my web page. I was "well someone needs to try this, it might as well be me." So I purchased one. I have 250 miles of Idaho single track on it so far and it seems to be lasting well. I like the way it handles and hooks up both on acceleration and during braking. I will be ordering another one to have on hand for when this one eventually wears out. While at 250 miles, I am seeing some wear on the leading edges, no cracking or chunking started.

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.
