The 45NRTH VanHelga fat bike tire is a super reliable high traction all season tire designed to keep you riding in all conditions. Designed for riding in loose snow, we find these tires handle great in any conditions. The newest member of the VanHelga family, this 27.5 x 4.0 fat bike tire is a welcome addition for riders looking for more tire options in this size.
Designed for trail riding in loose snow, Vanhelga brings traction technology to an entirely new level. Dual compound rubber lengthens tread life in the center of the tire while enhancing cornering control on the sides. Triple-siped shoulder knobs boost traction on ice. The tubeless ready design delivers a super supple ride quality, further enhances grip, and saves weight. In addition to these technological advancements, Vanhelga’s deep and open tread pattern sheds snow and tracks flawlessly when the trail becomes soft and sloppy.
Our tubeless-ready bead creates more contact with the rim and a more effective and secure tubeless seal. The entire bead is also smooth, minimizing the risk of air leaking between the bead and rim shelf. Tubeless fatbike setups can reduce the weight of each wheel by 300 grams and provide a suppler ride quality.
Our larger tread lugs feature tiny grooves that increase traction and give the tire more flexibility to move over surface undulations. Not only does this enhance acceleration, braking, and cornering traction, it also creates a more comfortable ride quality.
Braced lugs are designed to add extra strength to a tire knob in out of the cardinal directions of accelerating, braking, and cornering directions. Think of off camber weird rocks, jagged edges, or the slipping tire hooking up on tree roots.
