At a time when mountain bike tires were unquestionably gum walled, the VelociRaptors came out in black and haven't looked back ever since. They changed the game in 1994 with a steering specific front and a rear that could really dig. The VelociRaptors continue to be popular because to put it simply... they just work. Try riding one of the most classic combos of all time.

- Braking specific rear with wide knobs that dig in while braking in loose terrain.
- Tube-type tire with a wire bead, these tires are very durable.

*WTB's tire pressure recommendations have changed over time due to further developments in technology. Riders may always reference the markings on their tires for allowed pressures ranges, but may also consult wtb.com for the most up-to-date tire pressure recommendations from WTB. We calculate pressure recommendations based on an average rider weight of 160-180 lbs and suggest increasing pressure by 2-3psi for every additional 10 lbs of rider weight.
