The WTB Trail Boss TCS Tough/High Grip 27.5" mountain tire certainly lives up to its moniker when you're out on the trails. It sports tight enough tread spacing for full-on, drag-free onslaughts, yet it's blocky and tall enough to really dig in when it comes time to drop out of warp drive. A rounded profile and staggered, supported side knobs keep clamoring for traction even as the trail loses its camber.
Its TCS Tough designation means this edition of the Trail Boss sports a tubeless-compatible casing that utilizes two casing layers for superb toughness and reliability. The tire's Gravity DNA tread compound makes it a High Grip model. The tread compound consists of 60a durometer rubber beneath the tread for support and durability, while the exposed tread is a sticky 45a compound. This ensures increased traction throughout the entirety of the tire's contact patch, creating uncanny traction with tuned rebound characteristics designed to take harsh hits yet not fumble for footing. Top to bottom, this tire will have you owning the trails like a boss.
