The Maxxis Ardent has an aggressive tread in a high-volume casing and is designed with great traction in mind. The Ardent doesn't forget the racer with large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed cornering. The center tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance. With a wide variety of size offerings, the Ardent captures every mountain rider's needs.
The most important part of a tire is arguably the rubber compound used to within the tread and with Maxxis's Dual Compound you get two compounds that offer low rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
- Dual: Dual Compound for lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip
- EXO: Extremely cut-resistant and abrasion resistant material layer added to sidewalls (60 TPI)
- TR: Tubeless Ready for increased traction and lower rolling resistance (on all models)
