Grippy XC tire
by rsimpson
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

This tire, at low PSI, is very grippy. Corners very well and is light and fast. I also run the Maxxis Ardent tire and I dont notice any less traction. Just faster.

All Around Cross Country Tire

These tires are some of the best MTB tires money can buy, endlessly grippy and lightweight. There are heavierwider tires that can bomb downhill better but at the end of the day, these win overall.

nice compromise between rolling resistance and traction
by Mtn bike habit

Ventura Co Ca

I ride in So Cal sandy, rocky conditions. Majority of my ride time is rollers, folled by long climbs, then flying down the descents. Therefore I'm willing to sacrafice some traction and cornering grip for minimal rolling resitance. The Ikon serves this goal well. There are better tires for just downhilling but for an all around cross country function these work well and have a good life span.

Fresh tires for my MTB!

It was time for fresh tires on my Specialized Epic MTB, and I wanted to change up the look with these Maxxis gumwall tires, Ardent front, and Ikon rear, Great look on my bike, and most important, excellent riding tires for the terrain on our trails here

Purchased tires for the Baja Divide
by JB
North Carolina

Perfect tire for the Baja Divide. From sandy tracks to rough, rocky Jeep roads, the tires were great and held up well. Definitely robust, no flats, little abrasion. Will probably use their little brother (2.2 width) for the Great Divide.

Maxis Ikon 29er

This tire is extremely fast and versatile. I have used it in mud, gravel, sand and every thing in between. The Ikon is also very durable and has held up well over many miles of racing and training.

Rear Tire for XC set-up
by XC Racer
Competitive Racer
Huntsville, AL

Using this a a rear tire on my XC bike. Was able to seat tire bead with just a track pump, albeit pumping pretty fast. Have about 170 miles on the tire on hard pack, rock, leaves, and mud. Tire rolls great and has great traction. Seems pretty rugged given some of the rocky terrain it has been over with no issues.

Great Cornering

I ride mostly hard pack technical single track with some loose dirtsand, the knobby 29er's that came on my Specialized Stumpjumper FSR were horrible for this, I had zero confidence in the turns and did a lot of braking to navigate them. After a lot of research and YouTube I decided to try these, they Are Awesome, I can't believe how well they perform, after a few miles I started backing off the brakes leaning into them on the turns and they just delivered, I can't believe what a difference they make. The added bonus is that they are much faster on the straights as well so it has been a win-win. I balked at the price for a pair not knowing how they would be but after the first ride I was smiling ear to ear and the price was the last thing on my mind, that doesn't happen very often. My friend wants me to put the knobby's back on because I'm smoking him now, lol

Telluride to Moab and no flats!

I took these on a 7 day trek, hut to hut from Telluride and ending with Porcupine Rim in Moab. Not a single flat. Setting up tubeless was easy wth a pump. In the 7 days we tackled varied terrain and these tires rocked.

A good all around tire when not on pavement
by Smilinbikeguy

0 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I have a set of these set up tubeless on my Salsa Fargo, and so far so good. My off road riding is limited to gravel and simple single track, and these tires road plenty well, and deliver a plush and comfy ride. I like the retro browntan sidewalks. Well see how durable they are at the end of the summer.
