Maxxis Ardent UST 120 TPI Folding Tire 29x2.25
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.
The Ardent is my do-anything tire. I ride in the Mid-Atlantic region, everything from fast buff singletrack to roots and rock gardens. (Even the occasional mud, but we NEVER ride muddy trails, right?) The Ardent really is the perfect combination of speed, grip, and toughness in the rocks. Sure, it's heavier than a Racing Ralph, but I've never cut an Ardent in the Frederick Watershed. Running tubeless on Stan's Flows, it holds air better than any other tubeless tire I've used.
