Description

Faster! Grippier! is what the Maxxis factory team riders asked for, and that is what they got with the Maxxis Ardent Race.

Designed to fit in between the Maxxis Ikon and the regular Maxxis Ardent it's a great choice front and rear for an XC race or makes a great rear tyre on a trail bike. The ramped centre knobs are closely packed and of a medium height to provide great rolling speed and plenty of grip.

Keeping the same stepped side knob design as the regular Ardent offers lots of gripping edges in loose or soft terrain whilst turning.

Skinwall/Dark Tan Wall tyres: Maxxis has made a running change to replace all Skinwall tyres with the Dark Tan sidewalls. During the transition phase, there is a chance that stock from our suppliers may contain a mixture of both sidewall types so you may receive a shade that is different from what you expect. If this does happen please get in touch and we'll do our best to get you sorted with the option you'd prefer ASAP!

Features:

  • Suitable for front or rear use for cross country or endurance riding
  • A great rear tyre on a trail bike
  • Lightweight for a high volume casing
  • Best on technical XC style tracks that are hardpack, loose over hard or medium surfaces.
  • Comes in a 3C Maxx Speed tread compound for a very grippy, yet fast-rolling speed.
  • 120 TPI casing allows the tyre to conform to the terrain for excellent grip and comfort.

    Solid performance.

    Got this to pair with the Crossmark on the front of my son’s bike. A good combination and a solid rear tyre.

    Rapid Round Rubber.

    It was my first time. I was a bit nervous, but once I held it in my hands, the suppleness melted away any fears I may have had. It slid onto my rim with ease and I was able mount it gradually, using just my hands. A dozen solid pumps and it was on. There were a few noises as every curve locked into place, but it was a perfect fit. We were ready to ride. The more I tried to break traction, the more it held on. Pushing me higher and faster than I've ever been before, I quickly ascended every peak. After 2 hours of sweaty bliss, I returned home fulfilled. Yep, these Ardent Race tyres are the shiz. Matched with the standard Ardent on the front of my hardtail, they more than cope with the terrain on my home trails. Would recommend.

    A great true for the more aggressive XC rider.

    These are my go to for XCO and big multi day races. This tyre provides a good balance between braking and rolling speed down the center and enough chunk on the side to really push into the corners. They are a little heavier, however I am happy to sacrifice that for the confidence that the will last whatever I can throw at them, within reason. A great tyre for the more aggressive XC rider.
