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

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

    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!

          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.

                    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.

                      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!
