Bontrager Barbagazi 27.5×4.5 Fatbike Tire Review Weight and Width

The small white-furred, long-bearded men with enormous feet of Swiss folklore, a Barbegazi only emerge from their cave after the first snowfall. The aptly-named, ultra-fat, Tubeless Ready, Barbegazi TLR gives you the float and traction to take on any winter trail. 4.7 inches of aggressive tread floats over and bites into everything in its path.

Key features

A fat bike tire that excels in deep snow, sand, and rough terrain
Tubeless Ready (TLR) for easy tubeless setup and puncture protection
Supple and strong Inner Strength casing provides lightweight sidewall protection
Lightweight 120 TPI casing provides great ride feel and tire performance

Hey James,, we’ll done and valuable data. Thx. What was the PSI again? Assuming 8-12 PSI gets a 4.2″ width on the 80 mm rims. Any thoughts on the fit for 50 mm (Velocity Dually) tubeless? The 3.8 Hodags are a tight fit and run 3.6″ at 12 PSI but need some snow tires on the 27.5″ wheel size. Thx


I am looking at switching my Barbagazi tires ( currently on Mulefut 80 mm rim)to 27.5 x 68 mm carbon rims. Any problem with that width (68mm) and 4.5″ tires ????

What size of rims? 559 or 584?
