Description

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.
 

Features:

  • High volume casing with aggressive tread
  • Great all rounder, a real "Jack of all trades"
  • Designed for loose, loose over hard, medium and wet terrain
  • Works great as a front or rear on a trail bike
  • An excellent rear enduro bike tyre for all but the most extreme courses.

Loving this tyre

by

Was looking for a light weight fast rolling tyre that performed well in most conditions for XC, and this is it. Put this on the front at 29x2.4 with an Ardent Race on the rear at 29x2.35 and its a great combination. I weigh 80kgs and am running the front at 25 psi and rear at 23 psi. Im loving the Ardent, it performs really well in most conditions including wet and even some muddy conditions, but is out of its depth in deep mud which is as the discription says.
I tend to ride agressivly and hit corners at speed so traction is king and this tyre offers that.
The Ardent Race is great in dryer conditions and not bad in the wet but doesnt like the mud at all. Might look at a Forkaster for the rear.

On a side note, MTBD got my order delivered in 3 days. Ordered on a sat night and recieved it on Tues midday!! Three days man, three days!
Very impressive product and service.

Skinwall Ardent

by

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,

by -

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,

by -

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.
