An aggressive tread focused on traction and control in loose and varied terrain, with beveled leading edge dual row knobs in the center and well-spaced, siped edge knobs to dig into loose corners. Designed to be run on 50mm rims, the 2.75˝ casing inflates about 27.5˝ overall diameter (that’s pert near 650b, folks), meaning you get some benefits of a larger diameter tire like ground approach angle and more footprint, with easier maneuverability of a smaller diameter tire, plus some extra pneumatic cushioning. Minimum rim size for these bad boys is 35mm.
Bead Seat Diameter: 559mm
Casing: 120tpi, with Kevlar bead (850g) 27tpi wire bead (1070g)
The Dirt Wizard 26+ tire uses the same aggressive tread our other 3” Dirt Wizard tires use with tread block sizes optimized for the specific 26+ casing. If you’re not familiar, it’s a tire focused - much like a laser - on providing traction and control on the kinds of surfaces where traction and control are nary to be found. While the tread is the same reliable tread we’re all used to, the 26+ Wizard conjured up a new rubber compound that performs better in every way. It’s a compound that yields higher durability and the grip and feel of a much softer tire. We’ve also added sidewall protection for yet more durability as well as a tubeless ready, folding bead. The 3˝ casing inflates to roughly 27.5” overall diameter which gives some benefits of a larger tire like ground approach angle and increased footprint, plus a little extra cush.
