 Wonderful tyres for training and ripping up your favourite trials. They are heavy and can stand a lot of abuse. I use them primarily on tar and have had the same pair for over two years now, and they still have tread left. They do not roll fast and the rear can slip out on wet hard pack. Overall they are amazing tyres and I would definitely buy them again.

 Running these on a Yeti ARC 2010, very grippy....feels like a Maxxis Minion or High Roller in 60a compound, 2.35 for grip in comparison.
Tacky, grippy and awesome on singletrack and loose ground, works well for me and i'm 16st !

 Good all around tires! Rear grips very well in various types of terrain, and front holds good in turns

WTB VelociRaptor-Comp (MSRP $25) — The VelociRaptors are legendary mountain bike tires. They are quite possibly the most popular tires in the history of the sport. The front is renowned for its steering control, while the rear grabs the trail with predictable tenacity. After 13 years of diligent service, the VelociRaptors still shine as dependable front/rear specific tires.
