The Maxxis Do-It-All MTB Tire

The Maxxis Ardent EXO/TR 26" MTB Tire is an excellent tire for riders tackling techy climbs and loose descents. It has an aggressive, all-mountain tread pattern, a high-volume casing, and great traction.

The Maxxis Ardent is built with large block-style side knobs at the shoulder areas of the tread for confident high-speed cornering.

The Ardent's center tread, while designed for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance. Ample spacing between the lugs helps toss aside mud and debris.

It is also built with EXO Protection, which is an extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of these tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
