Terrene Tires has released its sixth tire model. The Cake Eater is a versatile, fast-rolling, studdable fat bike tire.
The Cake Eater tread design is intended to depart from the more aggressive “Wazia” model that Terrene currently has available in 26×4.0 and 26×4.6. In comparison, the fully studdable Cake Eater will feature a quicker rolling tread while still offering aggressive side knobs for plenty of cornering power.
“Inspired by studless winter vehicle snow tires, Cake Eater was designed to have lower center tread height with deep siping for lower rolling resistance and high traction with plenty of biting edges,” said Terrene tire designer Anders Broste. “Stud pockets were added in the transition areas for optional added cornering confidence in icy conditions and side lugs remain tall and edgy for biting into corners.”
All Terrene tires come in two construction options: Light tires are a supple 120tpi casing, and Tough tires are a 60tpi casing with reinforcements specific to the needs of each model and the intended use case of that tire model. In addition, each tire is tubeless ready.
The Cake Eater will also be available in a more budget-friendly studded tire option. The Cake Eater will be available in a wide variety of options this fall. Slated for October, Cake Eater Light will be available with or without studs in 26×4.0 and 26×4.6 size, priced at $120 without studs and $200 with the Low Resistance Crown Stud, a version of their top performing triple point tungsten carbide stud that has reduced height for less rolling resistance.
Cake Eater will also be offered in a lower-priced model using a flat-tip stud and cost-effective casing at $150 in 26×4.0 and 26×4.6. Following in early November, the Cake Eater Light will be available in 27.5×4.0 for $120 without studs and $200 with studs and 27.5×2.8 for $80 without studs and $160 with studs, all paired with our Low Resistance Crown Studs.
