Yes we have posted about this recently but I was reading through an industry magazine and they had an article about the different tire sizes so I figured I would share some of the article with you and remind you of the awesome bike that is now available at Tom's Pro Bike!

On The Plus Side
Grip It. Grip It Good.
Plus-size tires fall somewhere in between a traditional mountain bike tire and a fat tire. By definition, they are between 2.8" and 3.25" when mounted to a 40–50mm wide rim. The combination of a wide-profile rim and the girth of a plus-size tire creates a larger contact patch for the tire to connect to the dirt, which we all know equates to one thing: traction. Plus-size tires aren’t just between fat tires and mountain tires in terms of width though. They also fall right in the middle when it comes to tire pressure as well. Add that to the extra grip the tire itself offers, and you’ll be stuck to the trail in the gnarliest of conditions.
The whole article can be FOUND HERE!  It is a very interesting read especially if you are into mountain/fat biking.
