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 27.5" 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 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.
I've found this to work well as a rear tire on fast harder packed trails when dry. Definitely better than the Ikon, although that has its uses too. Cornering is not the greatest but I like a little bit of give at the back.
