    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.

    The Maxxis Nobby Nic - Thumbs Up

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've run this in both SoCal rocky terrain and the current NorCal wet conditions and have nothing but good things to say so far. I was a little disappointed that it didn't measure out to 2.35 on 28mm internal rims, closer to 2.25 which is no surprise from Maxxis. However, the narrower profile means it tracks well in mud, and doesn't pack up like the Aggressor. At 750 grams it feels fast. Definitely want something beefier for dryer/dusty or rocky terrain, but it is a great trail tire. The Ardent side knobs are too small for aggressive riding, and the Aggressor packs up too much in mud, so this has been the tire I have been waiting for from Maxxis. I had hoped the Tomahawk was going to fill this gap previously, but I was disappointed by that tire. For reference I have tried most Maxxis products aimed at trail/DH/enduro use.

    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

    I can't comment on the Ardents but I've been running the Forekasters for about 150 miles on the front range of CO from Buffalo Creek to Pueblo. These tires rock. In the snow I can run them down to 10-15 PSI and they'll hook up nicely. On loose over hardpack I've got traction for days. In the wet stuff they are just as good. For the price and weight you really can't go wrong with these tires. In Pueblo I managed to put a small hole in the sidewall that Stans couldn't seal up. In all fairness, its like riding on broken glass down there, everything is super sharp. I was able to patch the sidewall and put another 50 miles on it, didn't lose any pressure.
