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
  • Size: 26x2.1
  • Sold separately: Front or Rear

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

      I have owned 3 sets of these tires going back twenty years. They hook up great in loose rock and gravel. They have more rolling resistance than most modern MTB tires, but it's not that noticeable on hardpack. When the hardpack gets a little moist I feel like a mouse trying to accelerate out of a glue trap. Great price on a good tire to have for the apocalypse. With 26" offerings getting fewer and farther between, I will probably buy another set to mothball for the future.

          The knobs on the sides of the tire are all ripping off exposing the bead of the tire. The width is not even close to what it is supposed to be. Don't waste your money.

            We bought a set of these for our avid mountain biking son's 16th birthday. He is so happy with them; he says they are the best tires and they perform extremely well. He wanted the foldable style and was completely satisfied with every aspect. He is thrilled to get such high quality tires and we are thankful for a reasonable price!

              I absolutely love these tires! I ride in varying weather and terrain, including snow and ice. I have had other tires in the snow, but these allow me to ride with confidence. They attack and grip the snow with very little sliding, unlike other knobby tires I've had before. They love the loose gravel on the sides of the roads too! Like their name, these tires are BEASTS!

                I just got back into cycling but enjoyed riding quite a bit back in the 1990s in my 20s. I used these tires then and was glad to see they still make them. They are even better now than they were then as you would expect. For the price Nashbar has them listed you can not beat it!
