Twenty Nine Inches has received a Maxxis Aspen 29″ X 2.1″ tire for test and review. The Aspen was introduced last fall at Interbike along with the Ardent 2.4″ tire which we are also testing. (You can check out our posts on the Ardent here and here.) The Aspen is an XC oriented tread pattern tire that boasts of low rolling resistance and low weight. Claimed width is 2.1″, so it falls squarely in the category of many other race oriented 29″er tires.

Stay tuned for an Out Of The Box post coming soon where the weight, mounting method, and measurements for our sample will be given.

Note: The reviewed products were provided to Twenty Nine Inches at no charge for review. I was not paid or bribed for this review. I will give/gave my honest opinion or thoughts through out
