They changed the game back in 1994 with a steering specific front and a rear with wide knobs that could really dig. The VelociRaptors continue to be popular decades later because, to put it simply.... they just work. Try riding one of the most classic mountain bike tire combos of all time.

Front-Specific Version
Front tires need to prioritize cornering traction above all else, which is why the VelociRaptor Front features long, pointed knobs that slice into the trail and counteract cornering forces with ease.
Rear-Specific Version
You're not worried about rolling speed when you're barreling down a loose, rocky chute in need of traction. VelociRaptor Rear features incredibly wide knobs with substantial spacing between them. This not only maximizes the braking surfaces of the tire, but also provides them the room they need to hook up in a variety of conditions.
26" Ain't Dead
In a world where everything seems to be getting bigger, wider, burlier…the VelociRaptor has proven itself steadfast as the best 26" mountain tire on the market. Not ready to retire your trusted 26" steed? Throw on a fresh set of VelociRaptors and beat your friends down the trail as they brag about their fancy bikes while choking on your dust.
Comp Casing
Combines the lightweight efficiency of a single-ply casing with the dependability of a wire bead. Wire bead tires are designed to be used with a tube and therefore are not tubeless compatible.
Front and rear specific designs
"Steering-specific front features long, narrow knobs that are designed maximize cornering traction. Each of the primary knobs are at a slight angle to match the direction in which cornering forces are exerted on the tire.
Braking-specific rear with wide knobs that dig in while braking in loose terrain. Each of the wide knobs acts like a paddle that also digs deep into the trail while pedaling."
