Maxxis Ardent Tyre

Great all rounder for most terrain types and weather conditions

Recommended Use: Cross Country All Mountain/Trail


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Ardent can come in either a folding or wired bead. The folded bead is a tubeless ready tyre using the popular EXO casing (or on a couple of models the SilkShield eBike casing) as well as the Dual Compound which has a hard wearing base with softer edges for grip. The wired bead model has single compound rubber, is not tubeless ready but does come in at a lower price point.

What is the intended use?

The Maxxis Ardent is a do-it-all trail/cross-country tyre for use in most weather conditions and terrains. It provides good off road grip and water displacement in wet conditions, as well as getting fast rolling durability from the harder rubber compound.

Our verdict

A reliable, durable and long lasting trail/cross-country tyre for the hobby rider who wants something they can set and forget for all conditions. Great on either the front or the back, and on most surfaces.
