Our amigos at Vee Tire Co sent us a set of their Rail Tracker 26 x 4.0, 120 TPI – Tubeless tires and we’ve mounted them on a set of 65 mm wide Marge Lite Rims. The guys from Vee Vee told us this was their favorite summer dirt trail fat-bike tire. The tread pattern reminds me of previous Vee OE tires like – Missions and the Mission Controls, coupled along with a center three rows of smaller knobs that remind me of their Snow Avalanche tire that KBS reviewed pretty positively last winter. So half rail trail and half singletrack, kind of vibe. Take a look for yourself (below).
We put the rail trackers on the Park Tools digital scale and they came in at a svelte (for tubeless ready) 1222g and 1201g.
We laid the tire out flat and the bead to bead measured 232 mm and the tread to tread outside dimension was 112 mm. Mounted to the 65 mm wide Surly Large Marge rims the tire fluffed up to 93 mm wide at the casing and 95 wide on the outside dimension of the diamond shaped, shoulder knobs.
We’ll be testing these bad boys out through the fall and let you know how they work out, somewhere down the trail – Amigos!!!
