Surly just announced three new products for the touring and commuting crowd: a 26-inch (not dead yet!) touring tire and two racks.
The Extra Terrestrial tire is a 26 x 2.5” heavy-duty off-road touring tire with a 60tpi casing, Kevlar flat protection and tubeless readiness. It is intended for dry hard-pack trails or even on-road touring, with traction for corners and off-camber stuff. Suggested rim width: 24-50mm. MSRP is $60 per tire.
On the front-mount rack front, Surly is now offering the 8-Pack ($110 MSRP) and 24-Pack ($150 MSRP). They are less “intense” than Surly’s touring racks (though still the same heavy-duty construction) and intended for in-town utility. The racks are made of CroMoly steel with stainless hardware. They are designed to attach to forks that use mid-blade and fork crown eyelets, or uni-crown barrel bosses (like on most Surly forks). They are height adjustable for a wide range of wheel sizes and, clearly, will happily play porter for the choicest case of beverages.
The 8-Pack platform measures 160mm x 270mm (6.2in x 10.6in) and the 24-Pack platform measures 400mm x 270mm (19.2in x 10.6in).Tweet Print
