 Rode the 2006, 2007 and 2008 versions. When my last pair of 2008 is done, I'm eager to test the 2009 2.4" foldable ones. Good grip, good for downhilling, keeps you fast and fastened to the ground. Won't let you stick to the ground though, like Muddy Maries will. Good all-around Tire you can use for Dirt Jumping, Freeride, Downhill, 4X or any mountain adventure.

 Great tire for AM/ light freeride/ f*cking around. Holds well, but doesn't hook so much that it tries to toss you. It's light, durable, and rolls super fast for how much traction it has.

Now there is a completely new Fat Albert. Its core competences remain though: Large volume. Low weight. Strong SnakeSkin side wall. FAT ALBERT FRONT. A new, special front only version is designed for safe handling and braking grip. And with U-Blocks on the shoulders the Fat Albert Front tackles curves precisely. The Tubeless version is particularly strong. A butyl layer covers the inside of the tire, while on the outside SnakeSkin fabric covers the side walls.
