    Nice rolling tire with soft grip

      Comments about Maxxis Ardent Folding Tire:

      Great fast rolling tire. The TR (tubeless ready) technology make this easy to install and has maintained pressure after several rides. I'm running this 2.25 Ardent on the rear and a 2.4 Maxxis High Roller II on the front and is becoming a great setup that gives me the speed while giving me a great bite going into the corners.

      Cons

      • Exo Is Stiff

      • Rolling Resistance

      Best Uses

      • Mountain Biking

      Comments about Maxxis Ardent Folding Tire:

      This is a great rear tire for me. I use a Highroller II on the front after trying this tire on the front. Didn't have as much luck on the front as I did the rear.
      !!If you buy the EXO, drop the air pressure WAY down. I have noticed a huge difference when I drop air pressure. I am NOT light, over 2 bills, and I'm running mid 20's psi on this tire with EXO!!

        Comments about Maxxis Ardent Folding Tire:

        Have these in 2.4 on a 29er hardtail singlespeed shreader. they are PERFECT for this application. I Will never buy another tire again. Somehow they are super grippy, but stiff and fast rolling at the same time. So good.

          Comments about Maxxis Ardent Folding Tire:

          One of the best tires you can buy for XC and/or all mountain riding. The grip is un-matched and it rolls well. Even the larger 2.4 rolls well for such a big tire.

          The 2.4 casing is beefey and has MUCH taller pins than the 2.25. Try the 2.4 up front and the 2.25 for better rolling resistance on the rear.

          nice side walls not to thin or to thick set up on easton havens tubeless with slime pro. the aired rite up the first time Rolls very well for the type of tire it is the tire it replaced was a specy. captain an for the very little bit of drag added the grip more then makes up for it. I got the 2.4 after setting the tire to 22psi it came up at 59mm so just short of a 2.35. ican see it being a true 2.4 after some miles get on it im very happy with this tire as a front. an spoke with some ppl that use it as a rear. an they say as a rear it works just as good

          Great grip. This season I've burned through the sidewalls (ripped) of my Racing Ralph and a Conti X-King. Ardent has not failed me yet and I've been riding some pretty sharp trails.

          Not the lightest tire, but no one pays me to ride, so not the end of the world

          Though I hate to echo everyone else, it is a great tire, and one i will now on use mainly as a rear tire in the loose/hard/chunky conditions of the CO front range. Slips much less than other tires i have used in the back and rolls well despite its traction. On both my 29 and 26 bikes
