Description

For every trail.

WTB has a loyal following for its tires, and with the Bronson TCS 29-inch tire, it's easy to see why. Sitting half way between the fast-rolling Wolverine and the aggressive Weirwolf, the Bronson tread pattern easily holds its own from bone-dry hard pack to slick mud. And in the tubeless-ready TCS variety, this is one of the most versatile pieces of rubber that you could ever mount up to your trail bike.

The Bronson's spirit lies in its progressive tread design. Built off the dry conditions Wolverine, it employs meatier side knobs, and a more open tread pattern, in order to provide extra grip and mud clearing ability. Thankfully, though, this was done without sacrificing the fast rolling that WTB's rubber is known for. And with this being the TCS version, it gets a dual compound tread pattern, softer side knobs that bite hard, and stiffer center knobs that enhance the life and rolling speed even further.

WTB has a history as one of the pioneers of tubeless tires, so it shouldn't be a surprise that the TCS casing takes the best parts of the UST tire standard, namely the meaty bead and reinforced sidewalls. The 60 TPI casing is responsive and smooth riding, and with an Aramid bead, it's highly flat-resistant, too. The result is a tire that comes in under 800g, only with the support and durability that you need for tearing up aggressive trails.

The WTB Bronson TCS 29-inch tire is available in the color Black and with a 2.2-inch width.

Solid, reliable tire for most conditions

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden these in mostly dry condition, mix of single track and fire road and lots of loose dirt over hard pack. Reliable and predictable. A bit heavy but you can't go wrong with this tire. I'm running them tubeless and have yet to flat them. I weight 140lbs and ride a 29 hardtail. Probably not putting these tires through the punches like some do in Utah, Colorado and other places with rocky trails. Unlike, others on here I found the tires VERY easy to mount - of course, that's to be expected when they're being mounted on WTB Stryker wheels.

They rally.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like the other two reviews said they do take some elbow grease to get on (actually, dish soap to be more specific), but once on they rally. Pretty aggressive tread pattern, but they bite when you're powering up steep climbs and corner well on the downhill.

Confidence inspiring

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great tires for all mountain riding. The side knobs are pretty chunky and help keep you on your line through tight corners and loose/ sandy sections of trail. I've only had a few brief encounters with mud but never had a problem with the tread getting gunked up. I have to second Natalie's comment that the beat is really tight and hard to get mounted on your rim, but it's not an issue once you get them mounted. I've had about a season and a half on mine and they've been holding up really well. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again

Really Good Tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my 3rd set of these tires. they are a great all-around tire. They are a bit meatier then the WTB Wolverines but, according to the WTB web site,
they are a little lighter. They wear well and last quite a while. On the other hand, I have noticed the bead on the tire is very tight. Much tighter than other tires I have used. As a result it can be difficult to get on.
