 Rear tire. Great for my hardtail in inclimate weather never drifts out on dirt, snow, grass, sandy soil. It just digs in and tracks true even in 3"SNOW. In good weather the wear is a little premature but thats what you sacrifice for no slip grip! Now hop to it and Mcdoit.

WTB VelociRaptor-Race (MSRP $50) — 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. Spec is for Front and Rear tires.
