The extra width of the Dillinger 5 provides floatation over loose snow and additional grip while turning, accelerating or braking on ice and packed snow. Available in both studded and non-studded configurations. The studded version comes with 252 concave aluminum carbide studs to provide extra bite and increased durability.

  • 252 concave aluminum carbide studs grip ice
  • Braced side lugs improve cornering
  • Tubeless Ready
  • We design 45NRTH tires for extreme winter cycling applications. We do not recommend this product be used with power assist bikes as the additional torque and system weight can lead to pre-mature casing wear and stud loss.
