Surly Knard Tire

The Surly Knard’s block tread pattern has been carefully researched, designed, and tested. 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 works especially well when climbing. Please note that your frame must have CLEARANCE!

Comments about Surly Knard Tire:

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.

    Comments about Surly Knard Tire:

    I used this tire on the front of my trek Sawyer along with a surly krampus fork to give the bike more float and stability on rough forest service roads and rocky root covered ozark single track. I got the 3 inch 27 tpi and it really smoothed oit my ride. Also is quiet and rolls well on pavement. Just what I needed for mixed pavement, gravel and single track adventure and bike camping.

    Comments about Surly Knard Tire:

    I recently bought the 700c version of these tires for my cyclocross bike and I have no complaints about them. They sit tall and maintain speed really well. the knards are great for single track and ripping down gravel roads.

    Just a lot of fun. Using them on a SS right now. Had to customize the frame a bit to fit them on. Nice substitution for suspension. Fast once you get rolling.

    Comments about Surly Knard Tire:

    This is my first fat tire. I bought it for a fat front Jeff Jones MTB. Out of the box, I was a little disappointed with the weight 1360g but was very happy with the quality of the tire. The sidewalls are quite substantial and durable looking for a 120 tip tire. Mounted on a Marge Lite rim, I'm happy with the diameter and volume of the tire. Riding it has been a joy. It's seen a lot of muddy single track and a little snow. Traction is fantastic. Shock absorption is also great. Finding the right tire pressure is SO important. I'm surprised by the rolling resistance of this tire compared to normal tires (29 or 26 for that matter). For some reason I thought it would be less than it is. Overall, I'm happy with my choice and will enjoy my Knard until it's worn out.

    • Fat Bikes Rear Tire

    Comments about Surly Knard Tire:

    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.
