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.
