The Ardent Race tyre combines the ground hugging security of the popular Ardent with the faster, racier Ikon. The result is a reasonably fast, yet very confident trail tyre that's suitable for all but greasiest of terrain.
The Ardent Race brings many top-tier technical features together into one tyre. It has a tubeless-ready bead and a 120tpi sidewall with Maxxis' EXO puncture protection. On top, the rubber is triple compound, offering greater speed and durability in the centre with softer, grippier knobs on the edges.
Traction in dry conditions was stellar – the Ardent Race handled sand, gravel over hard pack, hard pack and sandstone with confidence. In wet conditions, the softer edges adhered well before packing up with mud.
There was a small loss of traction when leaning the tyre edge over, but it was short and controlled as the larger side knobs soon took control.
Tubeless ready tires.
