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.

Tyre going well, been on for approx 2 months - it replaced a Bontrager front. Good front wheel traction in wet & dry. Loving the skinwall as a change!!

I ride mainly single track, mostly at Toohey, Whites, Daisy and compared to the stock tyres that I had been riding around on and the Ardents, there is just no comparison. Nice wide grippy tyres that give you the confidence that the bike is not going to slide out from underneath you on every corner, has helped me ride harder and faster. Before purchasing the tyres I was concerned about some rolling resistance, but to be honest I haven't noticed any difference to the more XC orientated tyres I was on. Wether I'm climbing fire trails or descending on loose trails or rolling over slippery obstacles, they do it with ease. I think there just a great all round tyre, that suits the way I ride. I've only had them on the bike for a short time, 5 or 6 weeks, and I can't comment on there durability... time will tell...

This tyre exceeded my expectations, it was recommended by a friend. I've used the non-TR 2.2 Ardent before and it's not comparable to this tyre. I'm using it on the front for Gap Creek and Bunya, and it has heaps of grip while still rolling and riding nicely, quite light. I've been using a Minion 2.3 DHF trail and while it's not as grippy as that tyre in deep loose gravelly stuff, it's surprisingly good on the harder surfaces/shallow loose stuff. Just place that front wheel right and no issues.

Love the Ardent as a trail tyre. Using a 2.4 as a front on my Reign and 2.25 as a front on my 27.5 Anthem. Switched from Ikon to the Ardent on the Anthem and haven't noticed a difference in rolling speed but cornering is much better when out of the seat and carving through the trees. Even better since changing to 30mm wide carbon rims and dropping to 22psi. Mounted the Exo protection tubeless with sealant no worries.
