Bridging the gap
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.
THREADS PER INCH (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tires casing.
Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier.
Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tire.Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply,as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube.
Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires:Tubeless Road, Tubular, and Tubeless Ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tire will void the warranty.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires.
This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
Used primarily in cross country tires, the two compounds in the outer layer are specially formulated to reduce rolling
resistance and optimize treadwear and traction.
**Wide Trail (WT)**construction optimizes the tires tread layout and profile on todays modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tires are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width, but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the riders preference. All Maxxis tires 2.40" and up are considered WT.CASING
