  • 27.5” plus sized studded tire
  • Studs: 252 XL Concave (Carbide Tip / Aluminum Post)
  • Aggressive tread provided unparalleled traction and stability
  • Deep center lugs deliver enhanced acceleration and braking traction in the most wintry conditions
  • Super tall side lugs ensure cornering accuracy and confidence
  • New proprietary XL oversized concave studs with aluminum body and carbide steel tip
  • Tubeless compatible Folding Bead / 120 TPI / Studded

XL CONCAVE WINTER TIRE STUDS • Uses the same two-piece construction method as the concave carbide-aluminum studs • Features a super-sized carbide crown tip with twice the surface area for added traction over the original concave stud
A large flat edge on the bottom of the bead results in more surface area contact with the shelf of the rim. This increased surface area creates a more effective and secure seal for tubeless set ups. The surface of the entire bead is also smooth, reducing the number of small gaps that allow air to leak between the bead and rim shelf. Running your fatbike without tubes can reduce the weight of each wheel by 300 grams and provide a suppler ride quality. Always consult rim manufacturer instructions before setting up tubeless tires to ensure safety and compatibility.

    Bought a pair of the Wrathchild 27.5x 3.0’s. They are lightweight, indeed. Studless, they make a fairly nice trail ride tire. With a 120 TPI casing, they conform to the surface readily and hold their traction amazingly well. I’ve been riding em at 10 psi front and 12 psi rear with very pleasing results. The feel of the tire is excellent as they are supple and don’t have the massive rolling resistance expected from an aggressive tread.

    Pros: Predictable, comfortable, light, low rolling resistance. Traction is excellent.

    Cons: Not even close to 3.0. Rocket Ron’s are by far fatter. Run a couple psi more than a real 3.0.

      Thanks for your input as one of the first riders with some time on the Wrathchild. With a wet Spring and muddy trails we found these to be a great wet traction tire that sheds mud very well. Looking forward to studding them up for winter. Think with the height of the lugs and adding XL studs they may have been on the cautious side of volume spec.

    The Wrathchilds were fairly light weight, were reasonably easy to set up tubeless and had fantastic grip. Too bad so many studs rip out every ride. I have a few friends who ride with these tires as well. We lose from 3 to 60 studs per ride on snow covered trails with a few sections of ice and the odd tree root. My friends replace the studs with smaller and cheaper studs than the stock 45nrth studs. To me this is simply unacceptable. This is the fifth set of studded tires I’ve had and I’ve never been more disappointed with a tire in my life.

      45NRTH provides instructions with all studded tires which recommend a 20km “bed in” ride on flat terrain before doing any aggressive riding. The XL studs on this model provide better grip with a larger surface stud which will have more tendency to pull out if a good bed in isn’t done prior to singletrack rides.
