Its core competences remain though: Large volume. Low weight. Strong SnakeSkin side wall. FAT ALBERT REAR. On the rear Fat Albert provides reliable power transfer. The Rear versionhas U Blocks specially positioned to optimize traction and give more control in curves.Fat Albert has tough, resilient lugs, because durability counts more than saving the last gram.
