The Endomorph tire is 94mm wide (3.7") x 740mm tall (29") on our rims. Its the highest-volume production bicycle tire on the market at this point. And, at 1260 grams, our 60 tpi tire weighs 300400 grams less than lower-volume 3"-wide DH tires. Most 3" DH tires hover around 1600 grams.
Pre-war fat tire bikes are the best for this, the 24x3 tire isn't as tall as a 26" tire/wheel combo...just a little smaller, it still gives the appearance of a 26" wheel!
