Called 26+ by those in the know, Surly's Dirt Wizard tire provides float, cushion, and traction like a fat bike tire, but keeps the handling fast and responsive with its 26 x 2.75 size. Those big dimensions also just happen to be close to a 650b/27.5 inch wheel and mountain bike tire for increased roll over and footprint. Intended for rims 50mm wide, its aggressive knobbies deliver excellent traction and control in corners and through loose, mixed terrain.
When you're out on a ride the last thing you want is to be limited by your tires in any way. Surly's ExtraTerrestrial tires were designed to let you ride without limits by following a simple tenet for tire design: make 'em high-volume and kick-ass. The ExtraTerrestrial tire was meant to serve as a heavy-duty off road touring tire that shines on hard pack surfaces. It uses a nylon breaker in the sidewalls for cut protection, a molded pattern for anti-cut propagation, and a Kevlar cap under the tread to protect against flats. The ET tire uses a distinctly directional tread pattern and its width yields more traction than you might expect from a tire with such little rolling resistance. The tread is low profile with a file tread in between blocks. The ExtraTerrestrial tire has enough width and traction for the soft stuff and won't bog you down on smooth or hard surfaces. It's made to be durable and versatile and is at home on tour or on the trail.

The Surly Dirt Wizard 26+ tire uses the same aggressive tread that the other 3" Dirt Wizard tires use with tread block sizes optimized for the specific 26+ casing. If you’re not familiar, it’s a tire focused - much like a laser - on providing traction and control on the kinds of surfaces where traction and control are nary to be found. The 26+ Wizard also conjured up a new rubber compound that performs better in every way. It’s a compound that yields higher durability and the grip and feel of a much softer tire. Surly also added sidewall protection for yet more durability as well as a tubeless ready, folding bead. The 3" casing inflates to roughly 27.5" overall diameter, which gives some benefits of a larger-tire-like ground-approach angle and increased footprint, plus a little extra cush.
- Tread block size is optimized for the specific 26+ casing
- Sidewall protection for more durability
