Maxxis Ardent EXO 60TPI Folding Tire 29x2.40
An aggressive tread in high-volume casing, designed with great traction in mind. The Ardent doesn'?t forget the racer with large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed cornering. The center tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance. With a wide variety of size offerings, the Ardent caters to every mountain biker?s needs.
Put this on the front of my hardtail, looking for the same riding feel/characteristics as a Nevegal but with bigger volume. With an ArchEX it's a great combo in SoCal, wide, planted, supple. The last part is why i like it better than the Kenda in front. Better feel. Tried briefly on the back, no way it's better than the Nevegal. Less of everything, especially braking.
Good medium traction all condition tire. Works really well as a rear tire with something even meatier up front. I would recommend this tire as an all purpose tire with reasonably low rolling resistance.
Best rubber i've ever ridden. Handles corners with confidence and doesn't have much in the way of rolling resistance. Thanks PricePoint!!!
Really good XC / AM tire!
