 wear down within a few weeks on the streets but while they last, it doesnt matter where you ride because these are some of the best tires ive used. can take sidewalk corners at almost 25 MPH

 Rolls nice and grips well in loose over hardpack but in saying that would only use it as a rear tyre, want more side knobs from the front

WTB Nano Raptor (MSRP $50) — The Nano Raptor is an XC racing classic. The round-profile, micro-knob design and large supportive casing conquer rough racecourses and roll with the punches on long trail rides. The elevated centerline tread rolls quickly on asphalt and hardpack, while the numerous working-edges track predictably in “dust over crust” conditions. The Nano Raptor is a popular choice for short track XC races, dirt jumping and urban sessions.
