45NRTH Wrathchild 4.6 XL Studded Tire
The Wrathchild 4.6 from 45nrth set a new standard for aggressively lugged tires and available with 224 new XL concave carbide studs offering the ultimate in traction in every condition from soft snow to hard pack and ice. We tested a set of the new Wrathchild in winter 2017 and absolutely loved their incredible cornering and performance on both soft snow and hard groomed single track. The larger lugs really bite in and they would be our top pick for all winter conditions for any rider who likes to push the limits of traction a little farther. The new Wrathchild which combines a slightly less aggressive tread than the Dunder/Flowbeist for a less rolling resistance and adds the same stud pockets as the Dillinger with a new over-sized carbide stud. The new XL stud uses the same 2 piece aluminum body with a wide concave Tungsten carbide tip so you get maximum bite without the weight and they are easily replaceable and harder wearing. You really can’t go wrong with this tire either unstudded or fully studded.

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 fat bike 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.
