Fat Albert

When on loose or rocky terrain there is no better tyre than the Fat Albert.

Especially on downhill sections on loose terrain you need to have full confidence in your tyres that they can cope and grip at speed and while twisting and turning etc and the Fat Albert are pretty impressive.

While using them you can really put your worries of your tyres gripping enough away and concentrate on trying to be quicker or more efficient on the trail.

I actually think it could take a several runs for you to know the limits of the tyres as you will be able to push harder and quicker while sporting the tyres.

The tyres are built to be either with or with inner tubes and the snakeskin design on the sides make them very durable against punctures no matter if its on the middle or the side of the tyre.

ADDIX SOFT is a compound that bridges many disciplines. It’s just as at home in the enduro and downhill world as it is in the demanding discipline of all-mountain and trail riding. It also impresses when used in combination with other ADDIX tires – more speed: Soft on the front, Speedgrip on the back. Or more damping: Ultra Soft on the front, Soft on the back.

Rides superbly and provides impressively good damping. That’s ADDIX Soft. We’ve dug deep in the tire builder’s bag of tricks to create the perfect balance between the two. The result is a compound that’s amazingly good fun and yet is significantly more durable than the previous TrailStar compound. Tip: ADDIX Soft is also ideal for e-MTBs. Here it really plays to its strengths of “great damping and powerful grip”, and due to the optimised low-temperature properties it does this all year round!

ADDIX SPEEDGRIP, the universal compound. It definitely has the widest range of use. Perfect for XC, AM and Trail: for the majority of EVO tires there’s a version with ADDIX Speedgrip! It replaces the previous PaceStar compound where a significant, though not the only difference, during extensive use is more mileage and a longer life.
