Terrene studded tires burst onto the scene in 2017 and in 2018 they are the go to tire manufacturer for 27.5 bikes. These 27.5x2.8 tires offer tons of grip and are great for both winter commuting and trail riding.
Gliding over a frozen lake or twisting through a groomed trail—winter riding is best enjoyed with a quick and capable tire that won’t drag you down and still rail through turns.
Inspired by studless winter vehicle snow tires, Cake Eater was designed to have lower center tread height with deep siping for lower rolling resistance while the side lugs remained tall and edgy for biting into soft corners. Studs pockets were added in the transition areas for optional added cornering confidence in icy conditions.
Cake Eater is our fully studdable fast rolling fat tire for long days on the trail and is available in 26×4.0, 26×4.6, 27.5×4.0, and 27.5×2.8.

Now with 3 sets of studded Cake Eaters on various winter bikes. This set os now on my Surly Lowside single speed. I wanted a hard pack snow tire I could ride out on our hilly local roads. This 27.5 plus version with studs rolls well as studded tires go. Sets up tubeless nice and easy. The Cake Eater is my fav hard pack snow tire. Thanks to this one, I’m able to keep single speeding in the winter.
