Large and aggressive, Nate is a shred-your-face-off, run-over-anything, kung fu grip knobby tread pattern. The casing is round and solid at 27 tpi. Tall, widely spaced knobs are siped for added grip and compliance, which optimizes their grip. The knob's wide spacing means they dig deep and still shed the crap you're riding through. The tread is wrapped around the sides of the tire some, providing good knob contour even on very wide rims, which in turn allows good off-camber traction. Designed to work best on 65 mm or 82 mm rims.
