I'm not sure how John got this, but it's the biggest 29er tire I have ever seen by at least 10%. Check out the comparo - those are the same model and size, but one is 6.5mm wider and taller. Crazy.
Of course, since it won't actually fit in the fork, it's not such a good thing. Yes, that's almost a _2.7"_ tire, folks. Which makes it, actually, not a "29er" tire at all - this sucker measures 30" in diameter.
Poetic justice for all the years I spent harassing WTB to make a 29" DH tire?
