Product Details

Maxxis Ardent EXO (26-inch)

Get after it with Maxxis' Ardent holding the line. This versatile tire features large block-style side knobs with numerous edges for high-speed corners along with a ramped center tread for easy rolling. Plus, the high-volume casing delivers a plush ride. This EXO version adds an extremely cut and abrasion-resistant material to the sidewalls for extra peace of mind.

      I'm blown away at how good these are. Highly recommend them. "I'm 60, 5'9", 165 pounds. Live in Park City Utah. Early season, so about 15 miles of riding in Salt Lake City - Bonneville Shoreline Trail and a trip to Moab where I rode these (Ardent EXO 26 x 2.4, front and back) tubeless, 23 psi front, 26 psi rear. I rode Slickrock, Amasa Back - Ahab Upper and Lower, LPS/Porcupine, Klonzo and Baby Steps/Megasteps...and walked much of Rockstacker!...about 70 miles down there. The rolling resistance feels very low, especially for the size/weight. There was almost no noise from the center knobs rolling on pavement or Slickrock, they have a reasonable amount of volume at 2.4, around 57-58 mm carcass width and 62 mm tread width, so they grip and absorb shock (I have them on a Pivot 5.7c)and they run tubeless extremely well (take that, MBA magazine!) Anything will grip in Moab, of course, but they were also able to grip nicely off camber on slickrock with no sensation of the knobs folding under. They float through the sand better than any other tire I've used. No burping/loss of air the whole trip. I normally run a Nobby Nick Trailstar 2.4 up front and a racing ralph 2.25 pacestar on back, tubeless and expected the bike to feel sluggish because of the significant increase in weight, but I was making all the climbs as though I had 500 gram tires on the bike. Very nice!"
