45Nrth Vanhelga Tan Wall Fat Bike Tire
Designed for trail riding in loose snow, Vanhelga brings traction technology to an entirely new level. The latest Vanhelga features an updated tread pattern increasing ramping on the center lugs for better rolling efficiency while spreading out shoulder and side lugs to increase braking traction and provide more confidence in the corners.
Dual compound rubber lengthens tread life in the center of the tire while enhancing cornering control on the sides. Triple-siped shoulder knobs boost traction on ice. The tubeless ready design delivers a super supple ride quality, further enhances grip, and saves weight. In addition to these technological advancements, Vanhelga's deep and open tread pattern sheds snow and tracks flawlessly when the trail becomes soft and sloppy.
- Aggressively siped lugs for enhanced braking, acceleration, and cornering control
- Shovel-design side lugs provide increase braking traction and more stable cornering than the previous Vanhelga tread pattern
- Increased ramping on center lugs increases rolling efficiency

Great in the snow! A Pugs upgrade...
Needed new winter tires for my offset-frame Surly Pugsley. Not completely bowled over by the Nates I eventually wore out. I was hesitant to order Vanhelgas for the Pugs, as the "official" limit to tire width on my bike is 3.8", and these new Vanhelgas are "officially" 4.2" So I took a chance and bought this one - and it fit on the rear with plently of clearance, inflated to sufficient pressure for riding on snow-covered asphalt. I immediately ordered another one for the front. MUCH better than the Nate in terms of traction, especially in slush and ice. The Vanhelga seems like a really monstrous, heavy tire with a ridiculous amount of tread and siping, but it doesn't feel sluggish, even on dry pavement. I like it a lot!
