2012 Dirt 100: Maxxis Ardent 2.4 Exo

The 2.2” version of the Ardent is a good tyre, but the extra width of this 2.4” transforms it into a great tyre.

As you’d expect the added volume gives you a welcome bit of extra suspension for when things get really rough, but the other added bonus is that you get a more aggressive edge for cornering. Despite being such a large tyre it’s still plenty light enough for trail riding, and it rolls pretty well too, but when we say trail riding don’t think pootling around a trail centre, this tyre is made for hitting real dirt hard.

In that respect it’s also definitely worth going for the ‘EXO’ sidewall version as it doesn’t add much weight but it helps massively when it comes to protecting against cuts. Definitely a great contender for dry enduro races.
