Recon or Recon Pro: Which
is Right for You?
Recon is our collection of mountain bike rims. Falcon is for road, Drift is
for Fatbike, and Moto is for BMX.
What are the key differences between Recon and Recon Pro? The Pro models have
an innovative manufacturing process whereby the rims come out of the molds without the need for
painting or polishing. This required a complete revamp of the manufacturing process with new
higher-precision molds and presses.
What benefits can this Paintless Tech bring to you as a rider? Are they worth
the extra hard-earned dollars? In this blog, we will illustrate the pros and cons of Recon and
Recon Pro rims to help you choose what’s best for you.
