A lot of nutrition experts say that they’re astonished by the eating habits of cyclists. Most of them, including some of the pros, don’t always eat the right kinds of foods before and after a ride. It’s no surprise then, that these cyclists who don’t pay more attention to their nutrition constantly suffer from loss of energy, injuries, and even a full-fledged bonk.

It helps a lot if you’re a professional cyclist who’s on a big-budgeted team. Then you can easily have access to a medical staff that can monitor and regulate your physical conditioning, including your diet. But what if you’re just a regular weekend rider, or one of those cyclists who haven’t quite made the successful leap to pro level yet?

There are probably a whole bunch of bike tires to choose from but if you want something fast and fierce, Maxxis Ardent is one of the better choices. Ardent, unlike other bike tires, has a more arrow-shaped center lug pattern making it faster than other tires.  It is also designed to be more slightly cut down and rounder.

The space between knobs is also great and has a more natural transition compared to other bike tire designs. The fat series of side knobs can easily grab through turns whether you are on a rocky and muddy track or riding an unpredictable road.
