The 45NRTH Vanhelga is an all-around mixed condition fatbike tire best suited for trail riding through loose snow. Constructed of dual compound rubber, the Vanhelga's tread will hold up for the long-haul, while gripping tight while cornering to provide ultimate control in tough conditions. The Vanhelga is best-suited to conquer the terrain when the trail is at its sloppiest.
Shedding snow with its open tread design, the Vanhelga will not get held up on a soft trail. And with triple-sipped should knobs it offers great traction in slick spots. Siping increases surface area for enhanced grip, a technique used in the automotive industry for decades with winter tires.
This tire also comes tubeless ready. reducing weight and offering further flexibility for a bigger footprint for better bite. A large flat edge on the bottom of the bead results in more surface area contact with the shelf of the rim. This increased surface area creates a more effective and secure seal for tubeless setups. The surface of the entire bead is also smooth, reducing the number of small gaps that allow air to leak between the bead and rim shelf. Always consult rim manufacturer instructions before setting up tubeless tires to ensure safety and compatibility.
For groomed winter single track and loose snow
Compatible with 65-102mm wide rims
Dual durometer rubber (60a in center for durability, 52a on sides for added cornering control)
Oh my gosh - these tires are amazing. I almost sold my fat tire bike because of poor handling. These tires resolved all those ill handling issues, plus gave my bike exceptional traction in the snow. Would definitely purchase again and again!
