The Knard 26+ shares the same tread pattern as the 29+ Knard applied to a 26" tire (559 ETRTO) The casing of the Knard 26+ tire is 3” wide and designed to be used with 50mm wide rims, and a minimum rim width of 35mm is required to safely engage bead hook. The inflated diameter is close to that of a 650b or 27.5" tire so you get a little bigger diameter to roll over small bumps and rocks and roots. The large volume of the 26+ platform adds suspension and float and increases traction. The round profile and closely space knobs helps it track through corners and off-camber terrain. It can be used effectively and safely on rims as narrow as 35mm. Most at home on dry rock and packed dirt.
- ETRTO: 559mm

(note: designed for 50mm wide rims. Requires minimum of 35mm wide rim to safely engage bead hook)
