The Nano Raptor 29er is a XC racing specialist with a round-profile, micro-knob design and large supportive casing that will help you power through any rough racecourses and roll with the punches on long trail rides. The elevated centerline tread rolls quickly on asphalt and hardpack, while the numerous working-edges track predictably in loose over harkpack conditions. The Nano Raptor is a popular choice for short track XC races, dirt jumping and urban sessions.

      Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

      These Nano Raptors were on my 29er when I bought it. They seem to roll good on pavement, and keep traction on light trails/gravel roads. Haven't used them on harder trails so I can't comment there.

        Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

        I wanted a tire to double duty on sidewalks leading to trails ,,trails and back again...rolls fast on smooth surface because of tight center knobs,, outside knobs have good traction in the loose stuff,,, also went tubeless with stans rim strip,,run about 25 psi , gives nice bounce to small bumps.no more pinch flats for me

        Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

        This is a great all around tire. I was a bit skeptical at first with tall the tiny knobs but was pleasently surprised. Fast rolling, predicatable break away, great in almost all conditions on my local trail.

        Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

        I love this tire for an all around rear. Pair it with a slightly more aggresive WTB up front and you have a really fast, predictable race setup.

        Nano Raptor

        By Jose

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

        I purchased a set of this tires (Nano Raptor 29") and my personal opinion they are not worth, even at a special price.

        The tire side walls are the most fragile thing I have ever seen, and after two hour of riding my rear tire sidewall broke in a trail with some minimum sharp rocks. Go for Maxxis Ardens or Hutchison Toro.

        These Nano Raptor are ideal if you go to the coffee shop or some super compacted trail.

        Jose.

          Best Uses

            Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

            Listen, check around and see if these are gonna fit on your rims before buying. Stan's ZTR Arch rims for one don't work with these. I know how to put tires on and have run the race version NANO's tubeless with Stan's without any problems, but these tires are WAY too tight. After a lot of frustration I finally gave-up. Even though I finally managed to mount them, they were impossible to inflate (compressor) becuase the bead sits right over the valve. Back to the race version (they're lighter anyway).

              Comments about WTB Nano Raptor 29" Tire:

              Mixed feelings with this tire so far.

              On the plus side it's reasonably light and hasn't punctured on our sharp NM rock. Sidewall is sufficiently stout.

              Traction on our gravely, sandy and rocky trails is marginal. It rolls fast though.

              On the down side, I'm not happy with the tread trueness to the casing - it has a noticeable wobble to the tread pattern. (The wheel is true, the tire tread is all over the place). It's visible at any speed and I feel it on pavement.

                  This tire is only good as a back tire. It grips pretty well in loose over hard and light mud terrain. Almost no wear at all.

                  Good tire for dry hard pack. Corners ok with low presure< rolls fast. Does what it supposed to do. Not a mud tire so cant knock it there. Wears good so far put over 200+ so far and not much wear.
