    So will it be 4.5" wide?

    From that angle that tread looks pretty aggressive, is that the same tread pattern of the other two snowshoe sizes?

    Not sure why they choose to piggyback on the same name that has an established negative association from the original snowshoe, but whatever. Probably a rigid only tire if you want one up front.

    I wonder how the size compares to a Bud/Lou, or a Dilly 5? I mean actual width because we all know the numbers on the sidewall really have little relation to the actual tire size, especially when it also says Vee Rubber on it. :-) Nothing against the Vee tires, but my one bike has a 4.7 Snowshoe and a 4.5 snowshoe on it and both are the same tire and only about 4.25 in reality... And they are the same width as the H-Billie 4.25 I have.

    My Snowshoe 4.7 (now rebadged 4.5) is noticeably wider than my H-Billie, easily by a 1/2". Jus' sayin'.

    I have all three and swap them out - layed flat they measure within 2mm of each other. Haven't put calipers on them but visually they are identical (I have an H-Bille and snowshoe 4.5 on my Bucksaw as well). I just went back and checked my spreadsheet - the H-Billie measured 242mm wide, the two Snowshoes 240 and 242mm wide at the beads. The two with the same sizes went on my Bucksaw. The other one went on my Sturgis to replace one 72TPI snowshoe... I do see on the tire size .pdf on the "True Tire Size" thread that there is a large variation on the width of the Snowshoes bead to bead: listed ones go from 233 to 245 in measured width. That is 12mm variation on the "same" tire.

    My understanding is that the 4.7 and 4.5 snowshoes are the same tire different label, 238~240mm bead to bead. The 4.8 is 260mm bead to bead, the same as a Bud/Lou.

    No doubt this will be a big tire and I doubt it's alone. Lugs look huge but it's hard to say from an obscure angle pic such as this.

    Somebody's got to have a contact there. Checking out the map, they are next to Fox and a stones throw from FSA, Mavic, Hutchinson and WTB.

    The Snowshoe XL is a really huge tire. On 100mm rims it didn't fit my Borealis frame unless the pressure was fairly low. My guess is that few frames will fit this tire with 100mm rims. I want one!!!

    That's on your 103mm rim, right? What would that make it on a 90mm rim at 8psi? Or 2, even? :-)

    Hehe, the studded version was 1680g with 280 studs, so might go below 1590

    You can't handle my rare girth, says the XXL. I prolly can fit it out back, but would need a rigid fork.

    I wonder how wide it is on a 47mm. ;-)

    Add a 26x2.1 next to the 45nrth for the full spectrum of progression.

    I'm almost thinking it's getting silly now. That's a tall tire. IMO, diameter is pushing the limits more than width. Maybe the direction should be 24x5.05?

    I think the only frame that will fit this tire right now is my GMC Yukon at the house!

    Truth. I'd love the width, but that's a tall tire to be fitting in a frame for lil'ol me...

    Now if they would just make a bike hub that could take a 6 bolt pattern for my SUV, I could have a snow machine!

    Espen, if it would be to much trouble could you take it outside and show it next to a car/truck/Personal Carrier tire. I want to send my dad a picture of a real FAT BIKE tire!
