 Great grip for all terrains. I've never had a pinch flat.

The only con, if any, would be that they are a little heavy. You could try to use a smaller tube to counter the weight

Maxxis 2011 Ardent - Downhill (MSRP $0) — An aggressive tread in high-volume casings distinguishes the newest addition to Maxxis' downhill and mountain disciplines. Designed with great traction in mind, the Ardent doesn't forget the racer. Large block-style side knobs offer numerous edges for high-speed corners. Center tread, while designed for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance. With a wide variety of size offerings, the Ardent captures every mountain rider's needs.
