Surly Knard Tire

The Surly Knard’s block tread pattern has been carefully researched, designed and tested. While it looks like a simple block pattern, the profile is shaped just slightly edgy to maximize traction on corners while keeping rolling resistance low on straightaways. The closely spaced blocks are designed to grab terrain, and the pattern works especially well when climbing, making it a great all-around tire. Please note that your frame must have adequate clearance to run this tire, it's a fatty!

  • Tire Type: Clincher
  • Tires with 27 TPI have a Steel Bead and are optimized for long life, 120 TPI tires are lighter, more supple, and have a folding bead.

My Pugsley came with Endomorph tires front & rear. I swapped the front for a Larry (see my review under the lightweight version) which was a huge improvement, and have now put the Knard on the rear. I'm using the bike on hardpack, rocky and loose singletrack - no snow or sand. Performance can be summed up in three words - grip, grip & grip. With this much grip, they should be called 'Kneasy' instead of Knard. Folding 120tpi version is about 500g lighter than my mate's 27tpi version of the Knard. Having cost about $250 for the set (Larry/Knard) it's been an expensive change-over, but the improvement in the handling and grip over the Endo tires has been worth every penny. Paying extra for the lightweight versions has saved close to 1 kg. All round, very happy - although I can't comment on how long they'll last just yet.

Put a set of 29x3 120tpi on Hugo rims tubeless set them up at 15psi front and 17psi rear. Tires have great traction and roll realy smoolthy. they whent on tubless nice and easy on the Hugo 54 rims. Front tire works well and have not had any issues with it. the back tire second time out I got a puncture in tread area. Patched the tire and was OK for a week then I got another puncture in the side wall going through a rock garden. I do ride every day but in just normal forest single track I am worried about the durability of these tires so I have now ordered a Maxxis Chronicle to replace the back tire but I will keep the knard on the front

            Reduced rotational weight made my fatbike feel like it had been on a diet. Not a super aggressive tread or extra wide profile but those are not intended features.
