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 and includes 320 studs 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.

Using this as a rear tire with a Wrathchild up front. This is the rear fat tire of my dreams looking at the tread and it performed even better than I was hoping. I rode fresh tracks in 4” of set up snow and climbed lines that I would never consider with the JJs I used to have. It was really good braking too. The studs are tiny and very sharp. I lost 4 on the first ride which is better than the 11 on the Wrathchild (although front tires have more cornering stress). I am extremely happy with this tire!
Not ridden much this winter yet but I'm happy with these tires. The flotation is good and the studs are appreciable when there is some ice. The only drawback is the price.
Great tire. The best qualities of my Surly Lue and 45North Wrathchild in one tire. Now my favorite, it’s side lugs are amazing, the tread pattern feels fast, and the number of studs are mind boggling.
Great email communication on product availability and estimated arrival. I’ve always had a good purchasing experience with Fyxation. Thanks!!
Awesome tires, unbelievable traction on ice and great flotation on snow. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting the ultimate winter tire!
