The first high performance mountain bike tire with concave studs. The high volume 2.35” casing profile adds float on packed snow, while also adding a flatter contact patch for incredible traction and stability. The tread design of the Nicotine uses siping and open space between lugs to grip and shed snow. 222 lightweight studs with a concave carbide tip and aluminum base are carefully placed across the casing to provide extra assurance when the surface turns icy. Available in 120tpi studded and 120tpi stud-less versions.
Concave Aluminum Carbide Studs
Using the same two-piece construction method as the standard carbide-aluminum product, this stud features a carbide tip with a concave shape on the crown. The concave crown creates a very sharp attack angle to the surface, resulting in an unparalleled amount of traction. Any wear that occurs to the carbide crown creates an even sharper edge – continuously augmenting acceleration, braking and cornering performance as it ages.
