Pros & Cons

  • Grip on rocks and roots, both in dry and wet conditions. It's what makes this tyre a veritable marathon star.
  • The low central lugs make it fast on the straights while the tall knobs on the sides inspire confidence in the corners.
  • The Exo Protection offers protection to the sidewalls from sharp rocks.
  • The soft MaxxSpeed rubber might offer a lot of grip, it also wears out quickly.

Description

The Maxxis Ardent Race tire is ideally suited for technical XC race courses and endurance-length events. With its medium-height tread, the Ardent Race bridges the gap between the XC-oriented Ikon and the trail-oriented Ardent. The center knobs are ramped to reduce rolling resistance, and the side knobs are angled and stepped to provide great biting traction in corners. Choose the Ardent Race for your next demanding XC race or epic trail ride.

Best all round tyre ever!

Have been using Maxxis tyres for 6 years with only 1 puncture. These sit perfectly between the Ikon & Beaver for racing and is used more than either one in all conditions.

Pros

  • Robustness
  • Grip
  • Predictability

Cons

  • None

Detailed product description

3C Triple compound mountain
Maxxis 3C Triple compound mountain technology uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to optimize traction and stability. Maxxis offers three different configurations of our 3C Triple compound mountain technology: Maxx speed, Maxx Terra and Maxx Grip.

Maxx speed
Used primarily in cross country and enduro tires, the two compounds in the outer layer are specially formulated to reduce rolling resistance and optimize treadwear and traction.

EXO Protection
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountainbike tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

Tubeless ready
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flattering since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty.
