Strength:

Excellent on multiple terrain types - snow, moderate packed snow, loose gravel, sand, road, and dirt trail.

Weakness:

Heavy (60tpi), not great on ice packed snow (no studs)

New to fat biking but I have had about 10 rides on these tires with my Motobecane Boris x7. Had to replace the stock Vee8 tires that came on the bike since they had horrible self steer issues. The Vanhelga's eliminated the self steer immediately. The tread on these tires is significant and has proven to handle the snow especially well. On the trail without snow (or road back home) the rolling resistance is minimum and there is a good flow with these tires. After doing a lot of research I found a great deal from TreeFort Bike and have been happy with them since the minute I put them on. Best investment on the upgrades I've made to the bike so far.

Price...They're all too expensive

Just put a set of 120tpi on a 170 rear Fatback. I had the bike built with Husker Du's in 2012.
The rear wheel grip on these is incredible! The steering and predictable handling in super confidence inspiring!
First ride with 3" of Steamboat Fresh on snowmobile tracks for 3hrs. Tires worked great, out preformed 4.6 specialized.
Second ride with 3-4" on day old groomed, up steep 2 track for 2.5 hours, then down steep switchbacks to rolling trail with a few steep grinds. Could not break the rear loose, even while standing in lowest gear, plowed through everything. I'm 200 lbs without riding gear and was able to run @ 4psi in the rear and down to 2.5psi in the front (on the 1st day, 4psi the next)
Thought I wanted a 5" tire, but after riding these, I don't see the need. Maybe when they come out with the 5" Vanhelga.
