WTB Velociraptor 26" Mountain Tire - Front or Rear
The WTB VelociRaptor is no newcomer to the mountain bike world. A game-changer when introduced in 1994, these tires have been shredding trails ever since with no signs of stopping any time soon. The front and rear-specific tread patterns are perfect for digging at the dirt to maintain traction in a wide variety of conditions, so you never have to worry. Try riding one of the most classic combos of all time - they just flat out work.
  • Large, directional tread pattern claws at the dirt and maintains a consistent feel for better cornering
  • Front tread enhances steering response and control while shedding mud
  • Rear tread digs in to help you climb and break with some serious power
  • Lightweight casing shaves grams and rolls fast to minimize resistance
  • Puncture-resistant tread protects against thorns and other trail debris
  • Folding bead sheds grams

      Thee ties seem to grip the dirt giving me great control. I can't say about the time they will last although I imagine they will be fine. I only ride 125-150 miles a week in Colorado. Most of the trails are crushed granite aan it's haard ontires anyway.

              Comments about WTB Velociraptor 26" Mountain Tire - Front or Rear:

              I purchased two of the rear velociraptors to replace some other rear-dedicated tires on my two trail bikes (a single speed and a 9 speed). I've put about 20 miles on both bikes since I installed the tires. They are a little loud on hard pack, but they grip in loose conditions like sand even while on steep climbs. No more spinning out on the ss! They started out a little squirrely cornering on hard pack, but I played with the air pressure a bit and seem to have found a nice balance. The casings are nice and supple and they were easy to mount on my Rhyno Lite rims which have been a bear to mount any tires on so far. For casual riding or messy trails I give them 5 stars, but I'd never race xc with them, too much rolling resistance.

              Mojave Desert

                I've been using these tires for over 10 years. I ride in the Mojave Desert and the terrain has a way of wearing them down pretty quickly. I could get 2 maybe 3 years out of them, but I prefer to change them out once a year to maintain the high performance. Great bargain on a set of great tires when you can get them for what is essentially a 2 for 1 price when on sale.

                  Comments about WTB Velociraptor 26" Mountain Tire - Front or Rear:

                  Needed a more beefy tire for riding treacherous, clay and muddy technical trails. This tire grips like glue on roots and clay berms when filled to 45psi. A little on the heavy side, but is very stable at higher speeds through gravel and loose-pack. Haven't had a flat yet!

                  Comments about WTB Velociraptor 26" Mountain Tire - Front or Rear:

                  Even after seeing the weight specs they are much heavier than I anticipated no doubt due in part to the large knobs. If you need a ton of grip in wet and loose conditions these are great. But if you normally seek out climbs these will wear you out.

                  Great price on a great looking tire. The bike rides great through dirt sand gravel and really digs. I like it a lot.
