WTB Trail Blazer TCS Light FR 27.5" Tire

WTB Trailblazer TCS Light FR 27.5 x 2.8” Tire

Big Kid Shreddin’ and Plus Size Grinnin’

Designed to fill the need for a less than plus size tire and measuring in at 27.5’ x 2.8” the WTB Trailblazer is small enough to squeeze into some 29” frames. At 2.8” the tire still gives the benefit of float and cush that the +size platform is built for. Available with the TCS light version is sealant ready, allow the user to take full advantage of the additional volume, and features two full layers of casing. Employing WTB’s (fast rolling) Dual DNA rubber compound, gives the Vigilante the perfect mix of efficiency, traction and durability. Center line rubber and tread is stiffer and rolls faster, and wears longer, while the side knobs are softer and improve control and grip.

Features:

  • Dual DNA (fast rolling) Compound
  • TCS Tough: two full layers of casing for maximum sidewall protection, sealant ready
  • Enduro Casing: composed of two full layers of casing, leaving no area unprotected on our TCS Tough tires
  • TCS (Tubeless Compatible System): standards-driven system designed around tubeless bead shapes and hooks to create repeated sealant-based consistency between tire and rim

Specifications:

  • Wheel Size: 27.5”
  • Width: 2.8”
  • Level: TCS Light (Fast Rolling)
  • Compound: Dual DNA
  • Casing: Enduro
  • Bead: TCS
  • Weight (claimed): 980g
  • Usage: Big Kid Shredding’ / Plus Size Grinnin’
  • Conditions: Dry to Damp / Sand to Loam

Fantastic
I've been running these tires on my "non plus" bike for about a month. The fitment is tight on the frame, but perfect on the fork(2016 Fox 36). I run 10 psi average in the front and rear with little to no wallowing on turns at speed. Once you find the pressure that suits you these tires are unbeatable. As most people say, they do feel and look slightly smaller than 2.8, and considering they fit well on my non plus bike it might be true, however, this doesn't detract from they're ride quality what so ever. They are taller than they are wide witch means fewer pinch flats, if any. They feel light which is rare for plus tires and roll extremely well on hard backed, rocky technical trails. If I had to fault them it would be the price, but seeing as they were on sale when I bought them that's not something I personally dealt with. If you're use to plus tires, these will fell smaller, faster, and lighter. If you're new to plus bikes these are a great hybrid between the two.

Not a durable off road tire
This tire came stock on my new 27+ looks cool on the showroom and maybe riding to get the newspaper at the local store...Sidewalls are prone to gash flats....its ok for hard pack and sand, but an occaisional rock garden makes you ride like the captain on the Titanic dodging ice bergs.... I cannot believe WTB rates this for bike packing...do yourself a favor and get a tire with a stiffer side wall for any real offroad tubeless adventures.

Great for for a 29er to 27.5+
The 2.8 fits great in my Niner ROS 9. Though a little bulkier, the bigger footprint and traction has me running these most of the time over my standard 29 wheelset. Initially I wished for deeper lugs, but so far have kept traction when called for. Jagged rocky trails may be hard on the sidewalls as they appear average thickness.

First gen plus size tire
Good price, good construction. As with some other WTB tires I've had, the bead is super tight on the rim, to the point that I had to use tire levers just to unseat it. The tread width seems much too narrow for how much sidewall there is, although that may just be the first gen plus size tire design for converting a 29er, and made to work with narrower width rims. Could be a decent choice if converting a 29er with narrower 27.5+ rims.

I have read in a few blogs that this tire closer to 2.55 or 2.6 can anyone confirm this?
Aaron M on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Bit narrower , not 2.8. They have taller sidewall. Fits on bikes where 2.8 tire rub the chainstays. Pretty good hookup, but they squirrel around in turns with the really low psi. (I weigh 135 lb). I ran them on SS rigid for a year
