Big, tough, and smooth all at once, the Maxxis Ardent L. U. S. T./UST 29in Tires give the large-wheeled crowd trail-smoothing volume and confidence-inspiring traction. With aggressive blocky side tread and ramped center knobs, the Ardent TR corners like a boss and stops on a dime while maintaining a surprisingly low rolling resistance, making it perfect for soft, hard, and loose ground -- virtually any terrain you can imagine. These tires are acronym/initialism-heavy, so let us explain. The Ardent L. U. S. T./UST is tubeless ready -- compatible with Mavic's Universal Standard Tubeless system -- and features Lighweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology (L. U. S. T.), which doubles the standard of 60 TPI to 120 for extra durability and suppleness. The foldable bead snaps easily onto your rim, and the dual-compound rubber serves up a winning combination of speed in the center, grip on the shoulders, and durability all around. At 2. 25 inches wide, the Ardent TR is also the perfect width for just about any application, so you can slap it on front, back, or both and hit the trails in every condition.

Great tire...little heavier.. but corners and grips better than most. Riding in southern AZ high desert....rocky, sandy, steep climbs with lots of thorns and prickers..have approx 500 miles on these so far and not a problem...I am pretty rough on tires (or stricken with bad luck) these have stood the test...so far no problems...riding them on Stans Arch Ex 2013 wheels... they seal up perfect...haven't even had a "burp" that I know of....and haven't lost air....
These Maxxis Ardent LUST are the most rugged tires for sharp, rocky terrain. They weigh more that the EXO tires, but they have a beefier sidewall that holds up under aggressive riding on rough trails. I use this tire on the back and the EXO version on the front, since I tend to ride heavy on the rear during descents, because I'm regularly flying over rock gardens or off drops and landing heavy on the rear.
Very sticky on the trails in Vegas. cornering and climbing, easy to mount on stans rims no leaks, in a month or 2 i will be able to tell you how they hold up I race mtn bikes cat2 over 200lbs
