Plus/Fat Bike

The bigger tires posses a larger contact point which will boost traction where it was previously scarce, resulting in corning characteristics of a much longer travel bike. Tire deflection is also significantly reduced, which dampens impacts on the tire, from the trail, and will offer a more smooth controlled ride.
