45NRTH's Nicotine is the first high performance mountain bike tire offering concave studs (sold separately). The high volume 2.35-inch casing profile adds float on packed snow while also adding a flatter contact patch for incredible traction and stability. The tread design of the Nicotine uses siping and open space between lugs to grip and shed snow. Add up to 222 lightweight studs with a concave carbide tip and aluminum base to provide extra assurance when the surface turns icy.
