Maxxis Ardent Race 27.5" 3C/EXO/TR MTB Tire
The Ardent Race tire from Maxxis is ideally suited for technical XC race courses and endurance-length events.
With its medium-height tread, the Ardent Race bridges the gap between the XC-oriented Ikon and the trail-oriented Ardent. The center knobs are ramped to reduce rolling resistance, and the side knobs are angled and stepped to provide great biting traction in corners.
Choose the Ardent Race for your next demanding XC race or epic trail ride.

My dual-suspension all-carbon MTB has a split personality, a bit of downhill mixed with cross-country. I ride it on all kinds of events, from technical downhills to endurance gravel rides. Tires like the Minion DHR/DHF are great the super rugged stuff, but a bit heavy and slow for endurance gravel rides. The Ramblers are the opposite. I was getting tired of repeatedly swapping tires so I was looking for 1 tire to rule them all. The Ardent Race is kind of like that, a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none tire. It's lighter and faster than the Minions, more rugged than the Ramblers. I run size 27.5x2.2 and they weigh 740 and 760 on my scale, a bit heavier than the spec 714 grams. Mounted, they measure 56-57mm wide which matches the spec.
