Sneak Peek ♦ Fatback Sterling 4.2″ Tire



In a exclusive, we bring you the first photo of Fatback’s New Sterling fat bike tire!  It measures 4.25″ on a 70mm rim and uses a 120tpi casing with a Kevlar bead that’s tubeless compatible. The weight is approx 1300g and the price is yet to be released. Fatback owner, Greg Matyas, tells us that the tire is named after his good riding buddy Mike Sterling, who passed away last spring. Greg told us that Sterling was the most passionate winter rider he had ever met. Greg’s going to take this set of prototypes out for some beach riding this weekend and see how they perform.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

    Ahh, Vee Rubber, a great tread, and light weight, = a great price point too??!!

    So, it looks like its somewhere between a Big Fat Larry and a Bud/Lou in terms of width. Is that right?

    A real Tetris pattern on those knobs would have been even nicer.

    Great job, bring em on! 4.2 is an ideal acrtual width as most advertised 4: tires are only 3.8 and 4.5 to 4.8 is too big and heavy for my origibal 170 mm fatback frame!

    It’s been 2 months… no update as to the ride? Guess I’ll have to wait one more week for a review when they start shipping to riders.

      Fly to Anchorage and let us know how they ride Wyo! With lots of colorful cowboy adjectives!

    Would love to G-man. Was just hoping for a post ride report from the above mentioned Greg on the performance and feel. They really look like a fast XC patterned tread, and that is why I’m so interested in them.
