The WTB Exiwolf TCS Tubeless Mountain Tire takes the fast-rolling agility of an cross country race tire and combines it with the consistent traction of a substantial trail tire for impressive performance on any terrain, in any condition. Deep tread pattern with loads of working edges and spiky, soil-piercing side knobs increase control on the climbs, in the corners, and when braking. Stable, predictable, and tubeless compatible: the WTB Exiwolf gives a lively ride and easily tackles loose, wet, and rocky terrain.

WTB Exiwolf TCS Tubeless Mountain Tire (29 x 2.30)
These tires are heavy - 860 grams - but the worst thing is they are impossible to mount on my Stans Rims. Easily the tighest tire I have ever struggled to mount, and so tight I could not air them up, once mounted, because the bead was jammed on the valve opening, blocking air entry. I had to cut the tire off because the bead was so tight even a tire iron would not fit in. It took me 10 minutes of superhuman effort and lubes to get the tire on, only to realize I
should have quit earlier. I have seen this once before on a tire where the Kevlar bead shrunk over time and literally locked the bead into the rim seat, necessitating removal by cutting. My hypothesis is that these tires have also sat in warehouse and shrunk along the bead. If you want to take a chance, the tire does have a nice tread pattern. I have use these and their predecessor, the Epicwolf, and loved the traction to speed ratio.
