Vee Tire Co. Snow Shoe 2XL

January 16, 2018
Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Float Traction

Cons: Slow Expensive

Recommendation: I run the Snowshoe 2XL in front and a Surly Lou in back. (2XL won't fit in rear). This is a massive tire! Quite a bit taller, noticeably wider and considerably more volume (maybe 50% more) than the Lou. They pair nicely and work very well in snow, sand and wet conditions. The 2XL grips well in snow and noticeably better than Lou in icy conditions. If you don't need to go fast I highly recommend this tire.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Amazing! I can fit this on my 190mm-spaced rigid on my SE F@R. Can't wait for the snow to fall, but have to say that traction and minimum rolling resistance has been amazing so far. Was running two bulldozers, now replaced the front for a Snowshoe 2XL and can still go just as fast.

Cons: This is a pretty big tire, so I substituted fast action for all-terrain compatibility.

Recommendation: If you like fat and it fits your bike, this is the deal!

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: fast...for a fat bike, less rolling resistance than most fat tires. Cheap!!!

Cons: Less traction than most fat tires, slightly heavier too

Recommendation: I recommend these for summer fat biking, commuting or beer rides. They do well on dry dirt, gravel or paved. They are terrible in the mud and even worse in the snow. Use these to save your Bud/Lou tread during the warmer months.

Pros: Relatively light. Good traction on hardback trails.

Cons: A concerning amount of self steer when mounted on front. Average performance in snow.

Recommendation: Does not measure a full 4.7" in real life. Closer to 4.25". Better suited to use as a rear tire on fat bike frames that cannot take a full 4.7/4.8 tire.
