wtb-2011-bronson-mountain-bike-tire1WTB is coming out with a new mountain bike tire dubbed the Bronson, which should ‘officially’ show up at the fall tradeshows and start shipping shortly thereafter.

Like their new Stryker wheels, they’ll be built around their tubeless-ready TCS bead with other options available, too.

For 26″ wheels, they’ll be available in 2.1 and 2.3 sizes, and for the 29er model, you’re looking at a 2.2 only. The tread pattern is described by WTB’s folks as a square-shaped knob that’s intended for all-mountain usage, similar to what you’d use a Kenda Nevegal for. The widely spaced, somewhat tall knobs with small links between them should shed mud well while remaining stiff enough under side loads (aka: cornering and off-camber riding).

There’s also a new ‘Race’ version of their WeirWolf 26 x 2.3 tire that’ll weigh in at 750g w/ 60tpi casing and an Aramid folding bead.

Jump past the break for full specs, weights and a close up of the Bronson’s tread…


Bronson 26 x 2.1 – TCS 120tpi, UST Aramid Bead – Dual DNA Compound – 683g
Bronson 26 x 2.1 – Race 60tpi – DNA Compound – 623g

Bronson 26 x 2.3 – AM TCS 60tpi, UST Aramid Bead w/ Inner Peace – Dual DNA Comp – 731g
Bronson 26 x 2.3 – Race 60tpi – DNA Compound – 680g

Bronson 29 x 2.2 – Race 60tpi – Dual DNA Compound – 700g

Kind of a bummer there’s no TCS version for the 29er size, but if there’s demand, it’ll probably make its way down the pipe.
