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.

Look, there's only a few 29x3 tires on the market, and the Knard is the most available-est. It's a decent tire, the 3.0 width gives gobs of grip, but the tire isn't very aggressive, so braking and cornering are compromised. I can get this thing to "chuff" on aggressive climbs and they skid on fast downhills coming into corners. Still, they roll well and are fine for general use. Even if another tire becomes available, I'd still probably want a pair of these for hardpack or rail trail use.

          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.
