    That tread looks nice. I'll definitely keep my eyes open for some user reviews when they get out into the wild.

    I agree. Can't wait until some better tires come out so I can steer in the snow again.

    Unless you can actually find these new tires for sale I'd keep the Knard. No telling when they'll be ready for sale. Just look at the 29+ Dirt Wizard.

    yeah i know, pretty soon it will be back to the dirt and the knard will be shelved for a bit. i'm rolling a mid fat front on my xc ht on some duallys i built several weeks ago. the duallys are going on my nimble 9 w/o the knard. i guess i could still roll the knard on my p35's though. just thinking out loud sorry


    that chronicle does look nice though

    I haven't seen anything hit the market. I think we'd see quite a few people posting when they do. So far nothing.

    29+ tire choices

    I'm awaiting 27.5+ as I think that would be perfect compliment for my fatbike

    mmm does it offer better cornering or braking grip? those are my issues with my knards. nothing quite like the sound of a 3" wide tire skidding into a tight corner.

    It was kinda slick out there, being all the rain and humidity. That said, it never let me down. Pushed it as hard as I was willing to and never slipped unexpectedly. Did feel a bit like driving a four wheel drive truck, but as would be expected with this much rubber pulling the front end around.

    I have one coming in the mail tomorrow and a Gnarvester frame next week. I was thinking of running it on front and will replace the Knard on the front of my Les to try it out. I'll post some pics tomorrow night.

    Bought it from AEBike.

    thats where i ordered mine from. should be here end of the week. i hope they are more durable the 120tpi knards. i love the knards but hate their delicate sidewalls.

    I see them listed at some stores now. AEBike seems to have the best price.

    Anyone know if/when the 27.5+ version will be available? I've got a project just waiting for these!

    Looks like Bontrager is getting into the game too.

    anyone know what version of the vee rubber tire AE is selling, can't seem to tell from their site?

    here are the three models listed on the vee rubber website for the trax fatty:
    $100- 293.0 (WB, 72 TPI) (Weight: 1025)
    $110- 293.0 (FB, 72 TPI) (Weight: 950)
    $120- 293.0 (FB, 120 TPI) (Weight: 920)

    tread pattern looks decent (though i'd like a tire with deeper knobs for fall/winter). I liked all the regular vee rubber tires i have tried so far so i am hoping this is a winner.
