The Knard is of a slightly different ilk. Available in a 29x3" size, this tire is designed around the Krampus and an extra wide 29" rim like the Rabbit Hole. This is not just a 29" tire, though, it's 29plus, so dubbed because the larger diameter smooths uneven ground, the increased volume adds a bit of ''suspension'', the width increases traction, and the sheer size holds speed well. Singletrack beware. Bushes, prepare to be whacked. The 29" Knard is designed to work best with our 50mm Rabbit Hole rim and Krampus frame, but will also play nicely with rims down to about 35mm. Your frame must have clearance!
The tread consists of closely spaced blocks designed to grab terrain and hold it hostage until it''s done with it. Made on the same casing as Surly''s Nate and Larry tires, these tires occupy a unique place in the line-up: fast fat tires.
The Knard''s block tread has been carefully researched, designed, and tested. The profile is shaped just slightly eggy to maximize traction on corners while keeping rolling resistance low on straightaways, with an unnoticeable transition between the two. The casing provides a malleable but firm platform, surprisingly adjustable by adding or releasing a pound or two of air pressure. All of which allow a unique balance of inertia, traction and float.
This tire features a 120tpi lightweight casing and folding bead
These are wide tires! Make sure your frame is designed to use these fatties!
