If one thing is for certain, it's that the guys over at Surly know Fat Bikes. The Nate tire is a large and aggressive Fat Bike tire with plenty of meat on its bones. Featuring tall, siped knobs and a widely spaced thread pattern, the Nate tire offers plenty of traction in all sorts of terrain that sheds well so you're not carrying the trail around with you. The thread on the Nate tire goes further down the sidewall, providing a good contour to even on the widest of rims. A set of these tan-sidewalled monsters are sure way to set off your new Fat Bike build!
More aggressive tread than the other Surly fat tire options
Tall, widely spaced knobs with siping for added grip
Tread wraps around to the side of the tire a bit which allows for continued traction while turning
Nate loves mud! maybe a little too much, i experienced the same problem that others have noticed about nate, mud will stick and stay on the tires. However, i was able to continue along the trail, and make very abrupt turns in very deep and thick mud. Nate handled the mud better then the tires i have previously tried. Nate does very well on gravel, sand, and very deep mud. i have numberous creek crossing and make it everytime. I have not had a chance to try in snow, but i would say that Nate should fair well. A bit on the Heavy side possibly, but i do not ride a carbon, light as a feather ride. I roll on a OG pug with large marge rims set up as a pack mule. I bet it weighs close to 75lbs. And I fall into the clidesdale category of riders. these tires handle the weight of myself and camping gear very well. I was able to ride at much lower pressures then my previous tires, and experienced minimal self steering. These tires didnt break the bank either! Will buy more. if nate cant make it, you didnt air down enough!
These tires really put the final touches on my fat bike build. I mounted them to 100mm Surly Clown shoes which actually gives them a wider profile than 4" and pushes them closer to 4.25. I love the tan sidewalls and wish more company's would offer tires that add a little flare to your build. Not only do they look good but they ride great in the snow. The nobs provide great traction on snow packed trails and give you a bit more confidence railing corners at speed. Havent had to break trail with them yet so we shall see how they hold up there.
