Johnny 5 is still alive! Terrene does it again with their newest fat bike tire, the Johnny 5. This true 5" fat bike tire is designed to offer extreme flotation when you need it most. Many modern fat bikes can fit up to a 26x5" fat bike tire yet there are very few on the market. The Johnny 5 is a welcome addition and will surely be a best seller this season. Tubeless ready, up to 320 studs per tire for tons of traction and grip.
Plowing through a layer of fresh morning snow, or grinding on into the unknown in the dead of winter—adverse riding conditions require flotation and traction to keep you on the surface and moving forward when stopping is not an option. Johnny 5 is our extreme soft conditions tire, intended to deliver the float and traction needed to continue moving forward when surface density is questionable. Designed with a wide platform, tall paddle lugs, and 320 studs for maximum traction, the full 5” width Johnny 5 is the largest, most aggressive fat tire available. Johnny 5 is ready to ride.
About the Studs:
The original crown-point stud, the Triple Traction Stud has a tungsten carbide stud inserted into an aluminum base. Since it has significantly more surface area and grabbing power than our competitors’ versions, you can use less of them to reduce both weight and cost.
* Note that this listing is for 1 tire and the tire does not include studs. Studs can be purchased separately here.
Riding in snow for a month or so. Great tire, gonna get another to replace my 2XL on the front.
I've been riding a Johnny 5 mounted on the rear of my Salsa Blackborow for about a month now.I have ridden it on hard packed snow to 4-6 inches of fresh and I am really impressed with the tracton that I get. A super tire. It gets a better bite than the Lou that I had on the rear before.Big deep lugs that really grip.I have run it from 2- 10 lbs of pressure.At 2-3 lbs it squats really nice but still rolls ok. Most riding I run 7 and it rolls and bites well. I think it would make a great front tire also and plan to get another. I ride a lot of snowmobile tracks on lakes in the winter and it will excel at that. Best loose snow tire I've seen and used.Perfect fit for northern Minnesota.It should be great for Lake Superior beach riding also.
