45NRTH expands Dillinger tire to 5 inches of studded traction

Dillinger5-01

45NRTH’s Dillinger tires have been a big hit with anyone looking for more traction than what the big rubber can give on its own. Now available in a 5-inch size, the new Dillinger 5 has a 120dpi bead and 45NRTH‘s new two-piece concave stud design that actually sharpens as it wears.

The tread pattern is slightly revised from the still available Dillinger 4 (26×4.0) and like it’s “smaller” sibling, will be available in a studdless version as well. Ultimate traction doesn’t come cheap though: The studded version will sell for $250, studless for $175.
