With aggressive blocky side tread and ramped centre knobs, the Ardent corners like a boss and stops on a dime while maintaining a surprisingly low rolling resistance, making it perfect for virtually any surface — soft, hard, or loose ground. Add in a high volume casing and you have traction for days. The Ardent doesn't forget the racer with large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed cornering and a raised centre tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimise rolling resistance. With a wide variety of size offerings, the Ardent captures every mountain rider's needs. As the name indicates, the Ardent is tubeless ready, so you can ditch the tubes and ride lower pressures to save yourself the hassle of dealing with punctured tubes and sketchy grip. The foldable bead snaps easily onto your rim, and the dual-compound rubber serves up a winning combination of grip, speed, and durability. Even better, the EXO casing makes this tire extra durable, so you can feel more confident about rallying through rugged terrain that might eat up other tires. At 2.25 inches wide, the Ardent is also the perfect width for just about anything, so you can slap it on front, back, or both and hit the trails in every condition.
