WTB Stout 2.3 29"

After the first few rides in damp conditions on the WTB Stout 2.3 29" tire the initial impression is that it should be great Winter tire. I’ve been riding on a Racing Ralph over the summer, and initially the Stout feels really slow and heavy off road compared to the Ralph, though you get the feeling it’s a lot more durable and ultimately has more bite.

Overall size/width wise it’s a close thing, though the knobbies on the Stout are significantly larger.

Once you get used to it, the Stout seems to be a lot of fun and a good match for the 47mm rim.

I’ll be keeping a diary of how the Stout goes over the coming months (Winter).
