    Details

    Weather on the way.

    You're no meteorologist, and when you decide it's time to ride, you're not scanning any radars before you go. Throwing on your baggies and packing whatever food you can scrounge up is about the extent of preparation you undergo before hitting the singletrack. If this strategy often finds you navigating rain-slicked, unpredictable trail conditions under angry skies, you could make things much easier on yourself with Maxxis' Forekaster EXO/TR 29in Tire.

    Designed with mid-height tread blocks spaced evenly throughout the dual-compound rubber tire, the Forekaster features a tubeless-ready construction and the added reassurance of Maxxis' EXO protection. Confidently able to blast through loose gravel, sloppy mud, and changing trail conditions with a center channel of wider, cupped knobs complementing the allover blocks, the tire was created specifically with XC in mind. Though its billed as a late season star, we wouldn't hesitate to wrap our rims in the Forekaster in rainy, wet locales all year long for casual weekend rides and on rainy race days alike.

    Excellent all around tire

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I normally don't do product reviews, but seeing as how there's little to no info on this I figured I'd throw in my two cents.



    Maxxis is labeling these as a wet conditions tire, but I feel they're much more versatile than that. I mainly ride in western arkansas, and for our trail varieties and conditions this is seeming to be a fantastic tire. We have everything from loose, loose over hard, medium, hard pack, and of course mud. We have a lot of exposed sharp rocks with technical rooty trails, and these are outperforming the newest Nobby Nics by a longshot. Not only is all round traction and rolling resistance better, but I no longer have to "baby" them because of how durable they are. Braking traction is fantastic also.



    They're not as high volume as the Ardent 2.4 or the Ikon 2.35, but they're close enough. For my occasional XC race to my all day trail rides these are awesome. I'm about to go to central Colorado , so I'm curious to see their performance on the kitty litter over hard pack trails. I fear they're not ideal but I think they'll be fine.



    Buy these tires.

    Excellent all around tire

    Alex.. thank you for the detailed review it really helps people like me I live on the wet coast in the Rainy Pacific Northwest I moved here from Colorado so I am used to the dry kitty litter over dirt and rock I'm getting used to the mud here. I currently ride the Ardent tires on my Santa Cruz 29er since you know the difference should I keep the Ardents or switch to the Forekaster for muddier or and diverse conditions?

    @jackson I Definitely give these the nod over the Ardents. The Ardent is a decent all around tire, but at this point (nearly 500 miles in) I can't fault the Forekasters, and they perform better in mud/wet conditions undoubtedly. I think you'll be impressed! Good luck
