Like rails on your trails!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Seriously, did someone lay down tracks on my local trails? These things grip, grip, grip! Dry would be an understatement with how the trails have been here in Santa Cruz, CA. From super loose dust and rocks, hard pack, roots and rock gardens - these do it all! The rubber is super soft and could see them doing great in the rain too...when things really start to get slippery (nothing more slippery than polished - wet roots).
I could see them wearing a little faster for more aggressive rider, but that only tells me they are doing their job. I find it funny when people buy expensive bikes only to put lower quality wheels on. Whats an $80 wheel when it's the only part that actually touches the ground!
They also go on TIGHT! Takes some work to get them on but they bead perfectly tubeless and don't burp like other brands.
Running the Vigilante on the front, the WTB Trail Boss is...the Boss of the rear!
