Maxxis Ardent Tyre
The Maxxis Ardent is a great all round trail and enduro tyre.
The aggressive tread combined with a high volume casing make the Ardent a great front and rear combo on a trail bike, or as a rear tyre on an enduro bike. If using on an enduro bike, match it up with either a Maxxis Minion DHF, DHR or Highroller 2.
The ramped centre knobs offer great rolling speed while their shape allows them to be very effective at braking and climbing. The Ardent also offers oversized and stepped side knobs for multiple gripping edges when cornering.
Although not rear specific, the Maxxis Ardent is one of our favourite rear enduro tyres - loved because of its straight-line speed. On flatter courses, the Maxxis Ardent rolls like a champ, but once turned in, the tread opens up to give you confidence in the dustiest most blown out of corners.

* 26* - Paired with a TR 3C Ardent RACE on the rear it is the best tyre combo I have ever run. I run tubeless, pumped up first time with no pin holes or leaks. Pedal much better than previous sets of Schwables and Continentals, yet have more grip everywhere. Great tyre!
Grippy, maybe too grippy
by Alexander l. -
Using as a rear tyre, had maxis ardent race before and thought Id try the chunky Ardent. Its great and super grippy, just maybe a too much grip and a bit slower climbing than the race version. My local trails suit the race better I think..
Worth it for the look?
by Rhys H. -
Ardent tread and compound is perfect for everything Canberra has to offer. But within the first week of riding, both tires popped off the bead on small features and sent sealent everywhere. Not stoked. Hopefully this doesn't continue. At least they look awesome! Next time maybe a different manufacturer.
