It’s Fat Albert. When Leif reviewed the 25th anniversary Yeti 575 for Issue 41 (out in May) he was so impressed with the Schwalbe Fat Alberts that came spec’d on it that we thought they would be perfect for the Butcher and a good long term test. We only had the Yeti for 6 weeks and in the dry, so heading into winter on these tyres should be pretty interesting. Once Leif puts the rubber on the Butcher it will be trail ready, although we’ll be changing the brakes out mid-May for the real long term testers (but more on that later).
