Maxxis 29X2.25 Ardent UST Tire

Maxxis 29X2.25 Ardent UST Tire

The Ardent DC LUST is part of Maxxis’ eXCeption Series (EXC) that combines a high TPI count and a special compound configuration in a tubeless ready tire. Aggressive side knobs give the Ardent aggressive cornering traction and the ramped center knobs minimize rolling resistance but still has enough traction for quick acceleration and braking. L.U.S.T. (Lightweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology) is a lightweight material covering the casing and then it is wrapped by a lightweight airtight rubber that strengthens the sidewalls and helps air retention without adding excessive weight.

Features:

  • 120 TPI
  • eXCeption Series Racing Tire
  • Lightweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology (L.U.S.T)
  • Folding Bead
  • UST Tubeless Ready
  • Manufacturers claim 885 grams (29x2.25)

Excellent quality
I purchased these tires because they were on sale and a great price. That being said, I have not run Maxxis tires in a long time, so I was not sure the quality. Fortunately for me they are great tires! They have exceptional grip on rocks, loose dirt, roots, (I have not ridden in wet conditions yet.) They climb well also, I ride a 29er salsa el mariachi, and when I ran nobby nics on that bike and the same rims, they slipped when I got out of the saddle to peddle. They are defiantly tougher than the nobby nics also. I had multiple punctures with schwalbe tires, not so with Maxxis ardents. I will say cornering takes some adjustment, they hook up good, but they have a "slip then grip" tendency. It works well for me though. So all together I've put a little over 100 miles on them and couldn't be happier! I highly recommend these tires

Love these tires!
I use these on trails that are very rocky and hard packed with some deeper sand sections and they have done great for me. I've never had to worry about front end traction and the couple of times that the rear has lost traction on climbs it has been my fault for poor body position. After over 100 miles on them they still look brand new and I haven't suffered a flat yet.

They roll smoother and quicker than my last tires (WTB Velociraptors) and climb much better. I have no complaints with these at all.

Great cornering
Great tire for up front. For off camber this is a great tire. I tried in on the back and feel there are better rear tires out there. Will be my goto front for a while

Good tire for dry tough confitions
Bought to survive desert trails that include rocky trails that can slash weak sidewalks. Good grip on dry hard pack and loose scree and sand. Easy to mount tubeless. Paired with Maxxis EXO 2.4 tubeless in rear. Not a fast roller and a little heavy, but great for my riding needs.

CONS: Heavy

Great tire
This is one of my favorite tires. I've used it on both, the front and rear, and it works great as both. I've used it in all conditions…dry dirt, mud, slick rock, snow, and loose dirt…it shines in every condition. I am currently running it as a rear tire and a Maxxis High Roller II on the front.

BEST USES: Casual Riding, Mountain Biking, Upgrade, Racing
