    Does the Maxxis Ardent 2.25 exo 29er really exist

    If so, where?

    Love this tire on the rear but the non exo gets shredded way too quickly.

    Thanks a bunch! Kind of archaic, I called, had to go through a few different people/departments to get to a bicycle tire sales person. She took down all my info by hand. THe tire should be here in a couple days.

    The wierd thing with this tire over the 2.4 version...I get at least a .5 mph faster average speed on the same technical cross country trails. Why no bike shops, mail orders or ebay sell this tire is beyond me.

    What I'd like to know is if the Ardent RACE tire that we saw a few spy shots of exists. I think it was a 2.3? Paging Maxxis...

    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    Funny, was just googling to see if there had been any more information released about the Ardent Race and guess what I found on the UK Maxxis page?

The Ardent Race is the fast XC and Trail riders dream - taking the proven aggressive tread pattern, and taking it low pro-file to give it more zip.

    Sounds interesting, not sure how well it'll work with the reduced knob height. Available only in 29x2.2 for now in either 3C EXC EXO or 3C EXC.
