Chronicle Tyre Test Results
Look to the opinions of professional fat bike tyre reviewers if you're unsure.
“From a traction perspective, new tires never seem to disappoint, and these were no exception. On the slippery, sandy, gravely, rocky, decomposed-granite trails in my area, plus-sized tires are SO much more fun than their narrower counterparts, and the Chronicles behaved predictably and admirably, with a surefooted hold on climbs and corners. The knob pattern does seem to overhang the sidewall just slightly, protecting against sidewall slices from the dagger-like rocks in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, and after a couple of less inspired line choices through a rocky descent, the Chronicle sidewalls show almost no sign of scuffing (not the case with the Bontrager Chupacabra).
Bottom line (TL;DR): 125 miles in, good value, very good desert terrain traction (can’t speak to dirt/mud – that doesn’t exist around here), predictable, smooth rolling and relatively fast for a plus-sized tire. Would buy again.” – Derek Anderson, WorldwideCyclery.com, July 2018
