    Exo on Maxxis tires makes a world of difference. Not only does it hold up better to the rocks, it doesn't expose the threads in the sidewalls due to abrasion. That wicks the moisture out of your sealant and you end up having to replace it every week in the summer. I agree with Ed, I won't run non exo or whatever other tire makers call their crap now.

    it wasnt the money, I didnt realize what EXO meant..

    so far the tire has been outstanding in the back even on slippery rocks..very nice climber..

    The only weakness I found with the Ardent 2.4 EXO was in really loose stuff. Especially when it wore down a bit. Felt like I was on marbles coming down one of Jimmy's gravel roads at Flat Rock one time.
