    I can’t help on Stans but I’m running Ardent EXO’s on DT Swiss 6.1 which is supposed to be nye on impossible to make tubeless- the Ardents are quite ‘tight’ and really grip/a bugger to unseat if required. So I think you’ve got the best non-tubeless tyre for the job IMO.

    It blew straight up – no hassle or soapy water first time.

    Im using the standard 2.25 Ardent on Flow EX (front)

    Went up tubeless a treat, not a single leak. Had no issues with them at all.

    Not an Ardent but a Minion EXO on Flow. Was a bit of extra work to get it seated but got there in the end.

    I was running 2.25 & 2.4 Ardent EXO (f & r) on a set of Sun Ringle Chargers (licenced Stan’s tech, similar to Flow EX).

    They were fine in the UK but I burped front and rear massively in the Alps last week.

    Seem to be ok with tubes in 😉

    Anybody using a Maxxis Ardent EXO 2.25 tubeless on Stans Flow EX?
    Just wondering if there are any issues with them blowing off the rim or leaking/burping air?

    I’m running that exact combo on the rear of my Blue Pig. No problems other than the rim was a pain to tape up as 25mm rim tape isn’t wide enough.

    I have one.. it was so hard to inflate tubeless that I got my 4 year old daughter to blow it up with a track pump.
    I run it with a st minion dhf and they work well for me

    First set of them I tried the air just leached through the sidewalls something rotten to the extent I took them off and only use them on tubed set up.
    Obviously other folk have not had the same issues.

    Hmm I had that tyre on my EX rims and it didn’t go well in the rocks of tenerife last year. Ended up having to put a tube in it. It’s absolutely fine on a set of flows but on the Arch EX I gave up with it after it parted company with the rim a few times.
