The Maxxis Ardent mountain bike tyre gives riders a fast rolling tyre with ample side knobs to hold grip in the corners. The centre knobs are well ramped to reduce drag, increasing rolling speed. There is a smooth transition from these fast centre knobs to the large side knobs. These big side knobs will allow riders to corner confidently in various conditions.
We've found the Maxxis Ardent Race to be popular for hardcore XC and trail / all mountain riders. Hardcore XC riders will often run this as a front or rear whilst trail / all mountain riders normally use it as just a rear with a chunkier front tyre. Front tyre options to suit include theMaxxis Minion DHF.
