    Anyone know anything about these? Reported on Bikerumour

    They look pretty tidy.

    60a/42a dual compound in 2.25, seems to tick a lot of boxes.

    Price?
    Availability?

    Presume that price is for the wire bead version Brant? What will the folders cost?

    That’s for the folders. Wire is OEM only.

    How did you come up with the tread pattern?

    Combination of previous favourites?
    Pretty design?
    Pawprint of the Calderdale Toffee Hound?
    Back of a crisp packet in the pub?

    Any word on the on one/vee rubber fatbike tyre? I spoke to someone at On One the other day about their fatbike. Apparently the release date has been put back till “at least September.” It was meant to be out next month!

    Ta,

    I’ve always wondered how people end up choosing their own particular set of compromises for a tyre design.

    It wasn’t meant to be funny or clever, I was just interested.

    Vee rubber tyres are available now, somewhere, probably. I’m told they aren’t great. The On-one Fat tyres are taking longer than expected. Last I heard samples were “not far off”.

    Tyres complete end of July, so with us, by air, hopefully mid August. The BIKE will be mid/late September.

    The tyres are designed by Shiggy (not Shaggy) who is somewhat tyre obsessed.

    850g for the 29er, not a racing tyre then.. 😉

    Brant,

    will the new tyres work tubeless?

    the technical info on shedfire site spells tyre with an ‘i’.

    How disappointing.

    No great desire to make a minimally treaded lightweight racing tyre. Seem to be lots of those for 29ers around. I wanted some ace trail tyres at the right price.

    Brant,

    will the new tyres work tubeless?
    Lord knows. They are from a standard Maxxis carcass, without a funky bead lip thing, so I’d imagine they would on some sort of rim strip+goo thing… I really don’t understand all the tubeless specific stuff. And you’ll note, I wasn’t the tyre designer, so you don’t have to worry about that aspect 🙂

    Presumably as more of us run tubeless there’s less tyre swapping going on and more demand for all-round boots, and our variable weather makes seasonal tyre choice a bit moot anyway.

    But 750g in 26×2.25, heavy man.

    Shiggy, any idea where to get the Vee Rubber tyre in the UK? I’ve had no luck as yet.

    Sorry, I meant Shaggy.
    Another question about the On One fat tyre, how much will it cost? I spoke to On One a couple of months ago and the guy on the phone said he thought it would be around £30. I told him the tyres currently available are about 80 quid but he said On One’s tyre will be much cheaper. Any truth in this?

    Quite like the look of those. Tyres have suddenly become an expensive commodity, so a dual compound folder for twenty rubs is cause for celebration all round.

    As for the weights, a lot of big name tyre manufacturers’ products come in at the same weight too, plus we don’t yet know how big these tyres are going to be. Kenda and Continental have wildly differing views on how wide 2.3″ is for example.

    Though I can’t confirm the final pricing, our tyre will not cost £80. I’d hope for half that. At least.

    29in here, 26in here

    Single compound folding £19.99, Dual compound £29.99 (not £19.99 also as I might have excitedly misinformed last night). Amazingly, yes, dual compound tyres do cost more to make.

    Compound is 60a or 60/42, not 50A, 50/42as the site says right now.
    The 2.4in Chunky Monkey tyre is a 50a and someone put the details in our system wrong. It will refresh.
    Chunky Monkeys in stock in October.

    Well they are on the website.
    £20 for the single compound £30 for the dual.

    If they work out well as all rounders – which they look like they should – then they seem pretty good value to me.

    this is about as excited as i’ve been about “new” bike-related product in a while.
    not saying much, but then , it’s only bikes.

    regardless, thanks for a cheaper (and effective-looking) new 29er tyre, brant.

    “Though I can’t confirm the final pricing, our tyre will not cost £80. I’d hope for half that. At least.”

    Sound good to me. I’ll be buying at least one.

    Why not up the price of the 19.99 pnes by a penny so people can get free delivery?

    Buy a “Odyssey Tech-Boltz Anodized Bolt Kit” for 99p and grin a little.

    And you get two bolts!

    because I only want one tyre , I have not tested the tyre and that costs me £19.98 pence more than the actual suggestion from your potential customer.
    TBH I need a new tyre and I am tempted. However I am not buying another to get free postage when other competitors do free postage whatever I buy.
    If you pull some strings Brant i will buy one and will even pay the 1p to get postage.
