Maxxis Ardent Race 29″ Tire

Looking for a tire that optimizes performance and weight? The Maxxis Ardent Race is the perfect set up for your XC/trail bike. The Ardent Race takes the standard Ardent’s tread pattern and condenses it, with tighter spacing between now-shallower knobs, to create a faster-rolling contact patch, although the profile and job functions of those knobs are basically the same.

The Ardent Race tire from Maxxis is ideally suited for technical XC race courses and endurance-length events. With its medium-height tread, the Ardent Race bridges the gap between the XC-oriented Ikon and the trail-oriented Ardent. The center knobs are ramped to reduce rolling resistance, and the side knobs are angled and stepped to provide great biting traction in corners. Choose the Ardent Race for your next demanding XC race or epic trail ride.
