September 16, 2015
Model/Year: Weirwolf 2.3 29 TCS

Pros: Rear tire on both hard and soft tail 29ers. Run at 25-30 psi for hard packed, rocky trails with some scree and little sand. Performs very well in dry varied terrain. Have not had a chance to use in wet conditions. EDIT: Riding in North Carolina this week on leafy, wet, root infested and slight muddy terrain. Aired down to 18 psi for better ground contact and improved traction for conditions. Very happy with the overall performance of this tire in varied terrain. Would highly recommend.

Cons: None

Recommendation: I would definitely recommend this tire for use in varied terrain as typically found in coastal mountains of California. EDIT: this tire works well when aired down in wet leafy, wet root and light mud conditions too.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Lightweight
Super Sticky
Nice Look

Recommendation: Love this tire. Run it up front and It always ride like it's on rails. The 2.3 gives a cushy ride at 18 psi and absorbs the trail. I Love this tire up front!

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: great grip on anything that you ride it on. sticks to the ground like glue and with the 2.3 width gives great flotation in soft sand

Recommendation: On my singlespeed I use this as my front tire and the Wolverine as my back tire. This combination gives me incredible speed and even better traction. try it.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Fast but grippy on hard packed terrain, easy tubeless setup.

Cons: Rubber feels soft, will possibly wear off fast.

Recommendation: Switched from a Kenda small block on the front of my 29er ht. It definitely improved performance and gave me some grip on looser terrain without sacrificing speed. I have only had it on for a few months but seems like it will wear off faster than my sb8s. I'll have to come back to update this review once that is confirmed. Otherwise, very happy with this product. Good price and great performance, highly recommended!

Model/Year: 2014 TCS

Pros: Lightweight

Recommendation: I was running WTB Bronson's TCS on the front and rear, read somewhere someone loved the Weirwolf up front and thought I'd give it a try. I run 21 PSI on the front and it is almost as if the tire is velcro'd to the ground. Love the traction and the smooth roll she gives. Fast and Agile. It's a great Front Tire

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Excellent grip on hardpack, long life(going on about 2000 miles now)

Cons: Price( though you can find them on sale quite a bit.

Recommendation: Awesome tires, replaced the stock tires that came on my fuel ex8 and I will keep buying them.

Pros: Durability, traction, cornering, tubeless compatibility

Cons: Weight, price for TCS

Recommendation: This is my favorite tire up front, offers great predictability in the corners and the bead sticks like glue in my i23 wheels. I run this up front and I run a wolverine in the back, great combo for these Marin county trails.

Pros: Great cornering, deep tread, awesome look.

Cons: Super expensive item.

Recommendation: Love this tire as a replacement for my entry level tires, which I had for like a week and wore through them. These tires are almost as expensive as car tires!!! Although the price says $30 dollars, it's actually $65 !!! I only got this for the back; which needed most care.

Model/Year: Race XC 26 x 2.1 Foldable 60tpi 2012

Pros: Handle Great on all trail surfaces in Dry Conditions. Handle well on wet trails although they don't shed mud as quickly as I would like. Low rolling resistence. Corner very well. At 38 psi back, 35 psi front still grip great.

Cons: Seemed to slip on larger wet roots but so would most tires I guess.

Recommendation: I would recommend these tires. Supposedly they are redesigned for 2012. They have more then ample tread yet rolling resistence is not compromised much from my prior Specialized LK Control tires. Paid $50.00 each at REI...however foldable tires tend to cost a little more.I would definately recommend these tires.

Pros: Grip great in corners. Knobs allow good climbing and descending. Tubeless!

Cons: Nothing yet.

Recommendation: If you are an AM guy like me with loose dirt and rocky conditions. This tire may be for you.
