Maxxis Ardent Race WT Folding Tire - 27.5x2.60 Inch - Dual Compound - TR Exo
The Ardent Race fills the gap between the Ikon and the Ardent, between fast XC tire and trail tire. Its tread is medium high, the center lugs are narrow but leave enough space for good self-cleaning and are beveled for lower rolling resistance. The side lugs are angled and offset and bite into the ground when cornering. This makes the Ardent Race the right tire for all-around use and on the trails.
Tubeless tires have many advantages: You can ride with less air pressure. This gives you better traction and the rolling resistance decreases. And where there's no tube, the risk of punctures goes down, too. Maxxis TR tires are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other "Tubeless Ready" tires. The bead of the TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer, just like a real UST tubeless tire. This makes tubeless mounting on all rims with standard dimensions already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid. Also "normal" Maxxis MTB tires can be mounted tubeless with sealant like tires of other manufacturers, because the carcass fabrics are very dense. Officially approved for tubeless mounting and guaranteed by Maxxis are but only the new Maxxis TR models.
The Exo Protection, consisting of extremely cut and abrasion resistant material, protects the sidewall of various MTB tires. It is very tightly woven, lightweight and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tires remains unchanged convincingly good. With the Dual Compound mixture, two different rubber compounds are processed into one tread strip. The arrangement of the compounds is planned according to the desired properties of the tires.
Maxxis WT tires are optimized for rims with an inside width of 30 mm or more.
