The Ardent Race fills the gap between the fast Ikon XC tire and Ardent trail tire. The tread is medium-high, the center lugs are narrow, but leave enough space for good self-cleaning and are beveled for lower rolling resistance. The side lugs are angled and offset and bite into the ground when cornering. This makes the Ardent Race the right tire for all-round use and on the trails.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty. Maxxis TR tires use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight. Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires are the only Maxxis tires approved for use with liquid sealants.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
