Viento Tire Replacement: Maxxis Ardent


So after three years, I'm finally replacing one of my bike's tires. Away with the deteriorating Kenda Nevegal DTC 26 x 2.35 front tire and in with the new Maxxis Ardent 26 x 2.4 EXO Protection.


This will probably the first time I bought a non-folding bead tire. The reason for the switch to a wire bead tire, was because of the scarcity of 26 inch tires in my country, especially with models with great traction and thicker widths (oh so cruel 650Bs).

According to reviews Ardents are good trail tires for hardpack and medium conditions, Though most have it equipped in the rear. I'll soon be having this placed in the rear, once I get to acquire a Maxxis High Roller II 26 x 2.4 for the front.

Will mount this tomorrow~!
