Terrene Wazia Light Folding Studded Fat Bike Tire
Great tire, tubeless setup was easy once you get the tire on the rim. Light weight tire. Good traction going up hills on groomed snow trails.
Amazing Grip in the worst conditions
First of all, these are some of the easiest tires to set up tubeless (no monkeying about with mounting one bead, waiting overnight with a tube in, etc). I took them out of the box and they mounted perfectly. We've had horrendous weather with days of rain followed by single digit temperatures. I also live near a river that had flooded the trails and then turned to solid ice. Fat biking is not fast, but it's fun. Well, with the icy conditions, it ****** all the fun out of riding so I finally decided to pull the trigger on these studded tires. I'm glad I did as these things grip everything. I wouldn't race with them, but I've been having a blast riding in the worst of conditions.
We have had an especially icy winter this year where I ride and I was due for some new tires. These Terrene Wazia 4.6 studded tires have been great! On ice, they are stable and I haven’t spun out or wiped out once since I put them on. On ungroomed snow, they work way better than my old tires Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 4.8. On groomed hard pack they are pure joy. I might also buy an unstudded pair for the dirt.
Love the Wazia’s
Rode just over 7 miles today on nothing but hard packed snow and gice and I loved the way the tires performed. These are the first studded tires I’ve purchased and so far I’m very happy with them. The studs stick out a little more than others I’d looked and I’m happy I went with them.
I got my fat bike over the summer and have been riding 29+ wheels on my local trails all year. Now that the snow has fallen I put on the 26" wheels and have been enjoying our early season snow but we finally had our first freeze/thaw and after a recent ride I decided it was time for some studs. I picked up the Wazia studded for their size and price and haven't looked back. They roll great, are very grippy on ice and are a game changer in my opinion in terms of getting around on the trails I ride. They're a bit heavy and there's not a lot of info on the web yet about them but I'm glad I picked them up.
