The Ikon was made to be lightweight and have a high volume to appeal to the racing crowd. The fast rolling 29'er tread design helps to keep the speed going and provides great traction on virtually any terrain except perhaps sticky mud. This tire really shines in hardpack and loose conditions.
The EXC logo means the Ikon is part of the Exception series and has a high 120tpi casing and special tread compounds to deliver lightweight and excellent traction. Three distinct tread compounds provide durability, grip and long tread life.
