    Nate Weight

    I just weighed a new pair of 120 TPI Nates at work on a calibrated balance.

    #1: 1372.4 grams
    #2: 1391.8 grams

    Just in case anyone was wondering.

    Are these the ultralight folding? I weighted my "normal" folding 120tpi Nate earlier this year (like January) and found 1474g. Not much heavier.

    The stock 120 tpi Nates that came on my muk 2 weighed 1350g, and 1375g...I was pretty shocked how lite they were....

    Yes, the new ultralight casing. I thought that I read somewhere that they said the newer casing saves 100 to 200 grams.

    I just rode the new 120 Nates (front and rear) and those replaced a Larry front, HuDu rear. I didn't weigh them, but at some point I will pull them off and toss on a postal scale for everyone. I do know it dropped a little over 1/2 pound off my Fatback, it's 31.9 pounds now.

    As for performance, they climb like a billy goat, absolutely amazing traction and cornering is far beyond what I can push the bike to do. They shed mud very well, and roll along just fine on the singletrack here in Upstate NY. The ability to stand and climb with confidence is worth every penny, or in this case all 30,000 pennies.

    LOL no doubt on the pennies!!! I wish it were possible for a most cost-effective solution, but for me the Nates are THE tire. Not once in my riding experiences (fast off-camber loose downhill gravelly stuff, rocky/rooty uphill singletrack, muddy conditions) had I come up with the idea that something than the Nate could exist… well, except for a Nate with a much harder rubber compound for longer-lasting wear characteristics.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.
