Thanks for reaching out!

The Co-op Cycles DRT 1.1 may be able to accommodate a 2.4" tire. We're going to connect with our cycle team here to see if we can track down that info for you. We'll circle back with you here in the community when we hear back. Thanks!

Thanks for your patience as we tracked down this information. Our Co-op Cycles team got back to us and it turns out that the Co-op Cycles DRT 1.1 can take a 2.4" tire, however, that is the maximum size that is approved with adequate clearances for your bike.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

I went with a 27.5 x 2.3, the clearance is perfect and grip is better on the trail. Thanks for the information!

Glad to hear it and we're stoked to hear you're getting out on your ride!

Hit rely too soon…I’m looking at 2.4 in tires for my DRT 1.1 and I see the metric equivalents sizes of 60, 61, and 62 mm.  Would you be able to ask the bike team what the max metric tire size is?

 

also, I bout my DRT in 2018.  Would that make a difference in the allowable tire width?

@anthonya9999 - I can't comment on the specs of a 2018 model, but as far as the metric, you can just multiple/divide by 25.4 to change between that and inches. So 60/25.4 ends up being 2.36 inches, while 62/25.4 is 2.44 inches. Those all round to 2.4 and shouldn't make much of an issue as far as your clearance goes, should be good to go with any of them there! But if you want to err on the side of caution, you could limit yourself to the 60 or 61s.

Thank you!
