27. 5in wheels won their place in the already crowded wheel size market with their scrappy ability to transition between 26 and 29in terrain. Given that flexibility, it's only fitting that their tires can keep up, and the Maxxis Ikon 3C/EXO/TR 27. 5in Tire is equal to the task. It's a lightweight, tubeless-ready tire that mixes biting knobs with the triple rubber 3C compound to create a truly versatile tire. The Ikon uses a 120tpi casing with EXO protection, which involves adding pinch flat and abrasion protection at the sidewall for an enhanced resistance to cuts. The casing is then wrapped in a tread pattern that favors both buff and loamy conditions due to the spacing between the center lugs and the raised side knobs. The center lugs are also ramped to resist folding under braking and acceleration. Maxxis made the center knobs from a harder compound. So, it resists wear and flex in the knobs while taking advantage of the supple casing's ability to conform to irregularities and permitting the softer side compound to grab in corners and while navigating off camber over wet roots and rocks.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
