The Knard: An All-Around Tire That Just Makes Sense
The Surly Knard 29 x 3.0 Inch MTB Tire is the biggest bicycle tire you can get without it being considered a fat tire. Yet, unlike its fat bike tire cousins, the Knard rolls fast and can ride on just about anything with ease.
With its tightly-spaced, low-block tread pattern, the Knard provides the perfect ratio of traction and low rolling resistance. It grips well on all sorts of different surfaces and will haul heavy cargo on hardpack terrain or groomed trails.
The Knard is also tubeless-ready, meaning you can run low pressures without worrying about getting a pinch flat.
If you want a tire that has a little less bite and a bit more speed, but don't want to sacrifice traction, look no further. The Knard is perfect for adventure rides, back-country epics, or even commuting.
- Fast-rolling, tightly spaced tread pattern for traction & speed
- Large tire volume that provides comfort on rowdy trails
- 60 threads per inch for long-term durability
