New for 2018, the 45NRTH Wrathchild is the most versatile studded fatbike tire on the market. Offering high-performance traction while braking, accelerating and cornering, faced with any winter terrain scenario, the Wrathchild will help you conquer your next fatbike adventure.
Equipped with extra-large concave studs, the Wrathchild tears into icy terrain, leaving you with little doubt on the singletrack. While super tall side lugs take on loose snow providing superior confidence while cornering. And with an open Tread design, the Wrathchild sheds snow with ease, allowing you to accelerate through deep snow.
asked by: a guest does anyone know the weight of the tire without studs?
anwered by: canteau We weighed one last year that came in around 975g. Keep in mind that with plus/fat tires they can vary in weight from one tire to another by a 100g or more. This is the reason companies like 45NRTH do not publish the weight of their tires.

The good thing about this tire is that it works very well in a wide range of conditions, from loose, wet snow, to dry snow, to packed snow, to super slick ice. Works great all the time.
The problem with this tire is that the studs come out easily, at least if you ride on rocks. Here in New England, many of the good trails have a lot of granite. I found that the studs come out pretty easily at first.
IMO, you MUST ride these tires on the road for 25-30 miles first before you ride them on the trail. This is listed on the website but should be written on the tire package in big red letters.
I lost many studs at first, but the rate has slowed as the studs get seated. Also, losing studs doesn't seem to affect the tire performance, so they're currently working fine for me.
