Maxxis Ardent MTB 26 x 2.25" Kevlar Bead 60A EXO
Fast rolling, grippier than they look and the EXO protection is a good halfway house between single and two ply.
On the downside the edge on the outer blocks wears pretty quickly.
I have also cut clean through a sidewall first ride (300 yards) while bimbleing along. A bit unlucky really.Posted 4 years agoclubbySubscriber
Ripped the Exo protection on first ride but never punctured. Stuck it back in place with puncture repair glue and it seems fine. Did pinch puncture it but that was more down to me running 25 psi in really rooty conditions. Grippy but fast rolling on the rear. Not used on the front so can’t comment on that.Posted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Fine tyre for climbing, braking and cornering on-the-limit. Total and utter gash if you’re not completely committed. Suspect free handouts to journos bumped its popularity. I have two of the scary blighters cluttering up the shed that you can try out if you’re skeptical. Avoid.Posted 4 years ago
I just bought one last week, got it on for 2 rides, Only complaint is the 60A compound, slightly slips out on stuff that my normal Ardent didn’t, but saying that, it looks a lot tougher than my normal one. I feel very safe with this taking it to Spain next week. I run tubes by the way.Posted 4 years agoajt123Member
Hans dampf super gravity?
My mate has geax lobo locos. He says they are indestructable on jagged rock.
Cheap as chips too:
From what I hear Spain is very tough on tyres. Just go double ply, I says.

Pretty much agree when used as a front, OK as a back as fast, fat and always felt light when I had it.
I found wear to be quick too. Mine gets used as a spare on weekends away but I wouldn’t buy again.Posted 4 years ago
