The Maxxis Ardent Race Tire uses a medium-height tread, making it a cross bred race tire that unearths the middle ground between the cross-country inspired Maxxis Ikon tire and the trail-ready Maxxis Ardent. The middle knobs are ramped to reduce rolling resistance, while the side knobs are angled and stepped to offer confidence-inspiring grab and traction in the corners. Additionally, the Ardent Race 29" Tire features the 3C Maxx Speed compound which uses two compounds in the outer layer that are specifically devised to reduce rolling resistance and further enhance traction and longevity. The result is a tire that’s capable of tackling demanding XC race courses and long distance endurance tests alike.
After a couple weeks of riding on this tire I'll have to say, it's really awesome. An Ikon works as a rear tire very well on many of the local trails in Georgia, but really lacks in grip on some chunkier harder climbs. The Ardent Race still has great rolling resistance very similar to the Ikon, but the grip needed like the original Ardent to get you through rides with confidence in North GA & Pisgah.
