Year of the Nano Raptor!

Nano post

Guitar Ted of just posted a fantastic article about WTB's Nano Raptor tire. The report reminds us that 2009 marks the ten-year anniversary of the Nano Raptor and the 29er mountain bike. Just ten short years ago WTB co-owner and chief designer, Mark Slate (pictured above), designed the very first 29-inch mountain bike tire--the Nano Raptor. With the help of a devoted group of wagon-wheelers, that one tire started a big-wheeled revolution. As Guitar Ted stated, "I for one will be declaring 2009 as the “Year of the Nano Raptor”. Why not? I figure that without this tire, I still might be “endo-ing” on a 26'er somewhere in the woods and not having as much fun as I do today."

Well put, Guitar Ted, and cheers to Mark Slate for making it all happen ten years ago and still today.
