Another option from Maxxis mountain bike tires, the Ardent comes with an aggressive tread pattern designed to give greater speed, greater traction and faster braking power. The ramped knobs help minimize rolling resistance and the high-volume casing helps keep punctures at bay. This, combined with the dual-compound rubber allows for added security and better cornering when you need it most.
As another EXO-equipped model, the Ardent features reinforced sidewalls to prevent abrasion, punctures and pinch-punctures, giving you greater peace of mind when riding downhill or over loose debris. These Maxxis MTB tires also come tubeless ready- so you can ride with your preferred option in mind- just be sure to pick up a pack of sealant if you’re looking to go tubeless.
