45NRTH Nicotine Tire

45 North Nicotine Tire

Winter doesn't have to bring your bike vibes to an all-time low, 45 North offers cold weather solutions for adventuresome cyclists everywhere. As the first high performance mountain bike tire with concave studs, the 45 North Nicotine's high volume 2.35” casing profile adds float on packed snow, while also adding a flatter contact patch for incredible traction and stability. The tread design of the Nicotine uses siping and open space between lugs to grip and shed snow. 222 lightweight studs with a concave carbide tip and aluminum base are carefully placed across the casing to provide extra assurance when the surface turns icy. If studs aren't your thing and you're looking for an all-weather tire to fuel your adventure the Nicotine is available without studs as well.

The 45 North Nicotine is unique in its use of Concave Studs and Siping. Here's a little more information about what that means:

Concave Aluminum Carbide Studs

Using the same two-piece construction method as the standard carbide-aluminum product, this stud features a carbide tip with a concave shape on the crown. The concave crown creates a very sharp attack angle to the surface, resulting in an unparalleled amount of traction. Any wear that occurs to the carbide crown creates an even sharper edge – continuously augmenting acceleration, braking and cornering performance as it ages.

Siping

Tiny grooves on large tread lugs create more edges for grip. These grooves also give the tire more flexibility to move over surface undulations, providing enhanced acceleration, braking and cornering traction while also creating a more comfortable ride quality. Siping has been used in the automobile industry for years to augment the performance of tires in winter driving conditions.

45 North Nicotine Features:

  • 29 x 2.35" Mountain Bike Tire
  • 120tpi Ultralight casing
  • Available with or without studs

Well designed winter 9'er tire.
Higher quality and better riding than other studded tires I've tried over the years. The concave studs grip really well in ice and snow. The studs haven't been worn excessively with quite a bit of road/gravel use either. The tread rolls really well on the road for how aggressive it is, and is really nice aired down a bit in the dirt.

The quality casing is my favorite feature, most studded tires I've tried had a stiff/cheap casing /sidewall that made the tires feel like riding bricks. These have a nice compliant feel like a tire that costs this much should, on par with other premium MTB tires I've used. Speaking of price, had to drop a star for value...They are pretty spendy.

do the "no stud" tires have the holes for studs?
Greg M on Dec 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do. You probably would want to stud fairly early in the tire's life though as the holes tend to pack with small rocks when you ride for a while.
