This is going to make quite a few people I know very happy. The Team at 45NRTH, well known for their fatbike apparel, soft goods and tires, have teamed up with Whiskey Parts Co. to bring you the worlds first set of tubeless wheels and tires. The new 45NRTH Vanhelga tire is available in 120tpi or 60tpi castings. It is a 26×4.0 folding tubeless ready tire.
“A large flat edge on the bottom of the bead results in more surface area contact with the shelf of the rim. This increased surface area creates a more effective and secure seal for tubeless set ups. The surface of the entire bead is also smooth, reducing the number of small gaps that allow air to leak between the bead and rim shelf. Running your fatbike without tubes can reduce the weight of each wheel by 300 grams and provide a suppler ride quality.”
Look for the new Vanhelga tire this September.
