Maxxis Ignitor EXO 29" Tire
The Maxxis Ignitor tread pattern was designed for the most discerning professional racers. The well-spaced tread pattern fills in nicely to provide low rolling resistance in the straights, while the ramped pentagonal knobs provide excellent traction in the corners and in medium soil. The World Cup winning tread pattern is paired with Maxxis' EXO side-wall protection to make this fast tire nearly indestructable as well. The EXO protection is a lightweight, highly flexible material woven into the sidewall to prevent any sidewall cuts or tears.

I had read complaints pertaining the Ignitors soft compound making for poor wearability, but I did not find that to be true at all. I got two solid years of daily riding on cement, on my way to single track, and then some. The ignitor I replaced with with a quarter of it's tread left, will still make a great summer time tire here in the Northwest after things dry out a bit. When things turn to muck here in the NW we turn to traction tires. I tried the number one go to tire, the Kenda Nevegal, and while they provided great traction, they were like riding in cement, and switching to the ignitors was the best of both worlds, traction, and super fast roll-ability. In short I would highly recommend the Ignitor, and or paired with the Ardent in front. To date this is the best combination I have run ever. I went this way after reading several similar reviews pairing the Ardent and Ignitor as a great combo. They weren't lying. The ignitor is fast and a a great all around traction tire, and the Ardent provides great roll-ability as well, but with superior cornering and control. These are great tires at an affordable price.

NOTE: this isn't a nevegal, this isnt a studded tire so don't set super high expectations. Mine were way advertised weight, see the tire weight database on MTBR for reference.
OH, and also, i run this tire on my other bike in the summer on the front in sub-par conditions for a little extra traction.
