Roll over anything

The Maxxis Ardent tire was given a rounded profile and 2.25in width for a smoother ride.  It also has an aggressive tread pattern that not only allows you to float over the rough stuff, but to have plenty of traction on tap, too.

To prevent energy loss, the Ardent's center tread features ramped knobs. And while these are ideal for acceleration, they also assists with braking traction. At the side of the tire, large block-style knobs result in numerous edges for confidence in high-speed cornering. 

Please note that this tire features a folding bead, and it is not UST compatible. If you're looking for a UST tire, we recommend the Ardent 29in Evo Tire.

The Maxxis Ardent 29in Tire is available in the color Black and with a 2.25-inch width.

Great tire for hard surfaces.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great tire for harder surfaces with limited moisture. I run this tire the widest I can get away with on the front . I run the 2.25 on the rear of my Tall boy and it works great with about 37-40 PSI. Perfect tire for hard pan conditions. I have ran same tire for 3 years now. Love it.

Are these tires single compound or dual-compound? And which ones are tubeless ready (TLR)? Maxxis makes both TLR and non-TLR versions.

Responded on

Since Backcountry chat staff wasn't very helpful to get my required info above, I ended up ordering a set of EXO tires anyways, and what I received (29x2.25) were single compound, and (thankfully) tubeless ready tires (TB96734100).

Great all around tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I put a set of the Ardent EXO / TR tires on my Pivot 429c and couldn't be happier. Overall traction is almost as good as the High Roller II's, but they roll much faster. Great tire for all day trail rides and XC racing on the more technical courses.
