Maxxis Ardent Race 3C Exo 26" Tire

Maxxis Ardent Race 3C Exo 26" Tire

The Maxxis Ardent Race 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 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 both demanding XC race courses and long distance endurance tests.

This select model of the Ardent Race is tubeless ready and features EXO protection which is an extremely cut-resistant, abrasion-resistant, densely woven fabric that’s added to the sidewalls to greatly reduce the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions, while remaining lightweight and flexible.

Grippy fast tire
I switched from very chunky tread to the medium knob tires and couldn't be happier. Rolling resistance has been reduced, but there is still plenty of grip from the tread for the trails I ride (mostly dirt and roots, some rock). The tread on the outside of the tire transitions smoothly and makes the bike easy to lean over without an abrupt tipping point. these are my first set of Maxxis tires, not sure I'd try anything else out there right now.

fast rolling, decent traction and wear
Terrible wet weather traction, good on hard pack to medium loose.

Good tire, thin sidewall
Used this tire for a year before sidewall got sliced. Sidewalls are super duper thin. Outside of that, it was a great performer. Rolled fast and confident in turns.

Going back to Ignitors. Tried and true tire.

I want to confirm that this tire is tubeless ready. I see it in the description, but typically "TR" is listed in the product name for tubeless ready Maxxis tires. Thank you

BEST ANSWER: Yep. It actually went on much easier than the Schwalbe Rocket Ron that it replaced.
It makes a great rear tire or front tire when paired with an Icon.
