Maxxis Ardent Race Tyre

Lower profile cross country and trail tyre for fast riders/racing

Recommended Use: Cross Country All Mountain/Trail


What technology does it use in its construction?

The Ardent Race comes in the popular intermediate EXO casing from Maxxis and with the fastest rolling 3C Maxx Speed compound. It is Tubeless Ready and comes in a range of widths and sizes to best suit your chosen application.

What is the intended use?

The Maxxis Ardent Race is a fast rolling cross country/all mountain tyre with an almost semi slick design. There are square edged side knobs for cornering grip and low profile ramped knobs in the center tread to keep rolling resistance low.

Our verdict

Best suited for fast riders looking for those extra seconds on drier, harder courses. Ideal on the back with something a bit burlier up front, or both front and rear if the conditions will allow for it.
