The Vee Tires range of Fatbike tyres is due into the UK shortly and we are now taking orders for these. Vee are a big OEM tyre manufacturer and it is good to see them back in the UK market for road, MTB, BMX and Fatbike. We shall get a pair for our Singular Puffin project bike.
Vee Mission: The Mission (VRB M321) is for mountain bike trail riding or racing. Ramped and chisel shaped center and transition knobs set this tyre apart from the others. Diamond shaped extra transition knobs provide great cornering. The tyre is constructed with either a Wired or Folding Bead (FB) and single compound with either 72 or 120 Treads Per Inch (TPI) casing material. As the knobs provide superior traction, we recommend this tire for mainly for Medium – Hard conditions but it can be used for many trails.
Vee Speedster: The VRB 316 Vee Speedster is designed for hard pack fast riding. Constructed with Folding Bead (FB) or Wire Bead (WB) with Normal Compound rubber and a 72 Threads Per Inch (TPI) casing material – the Speedster is intended for Hard Pack or paved (H) trail usage.
Vee 8: The VRB 332 Vee 8 is a mountain bike tire similar to the Vee 6 however the knobs are slightly smaller and arranged in a row of 8 across the tire. The knobs are again ramped and tapered. The slightly smaller knob design allows for more speed. The tire is made with Folding Bead (FB) , Dual Compound (DC) and 120 Threads Per Inch (TPI) Casing Material. This tire is intended for Medium-Hard (M)-(H) trail riding.
