Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented.

WTB CrossWolf 700x32 Review

Just got back from my first ride on a pair of Crosswolf tires. I rode pavement (through San Francisco, across Golden Gate Bridge) to some nice fire roads in the Marin Headlands (Miwok, Bobcat trails). Did about 30 miles, 12 of which were on dirt. These tires rock! Very grippy and confidence inspiring in the dirt. Not too buzzy or slow on pavement either. The only other cyclocross tires I've used were Ritchey Crossmax which I took off of the bike pretty quickly because on pavement they felt pretty squirmy when cornering. I won't get a chance to ride in mud until the rainy season hits a few months from now, but so far, so good.

Anyone else use these tires? Before I bought them I couldn't find any reviews on the internet at all.

Six years later and I'm not finding much on these tires either.
Do you still use these? Have you moved on? What would you say today about them?

I was recently looking for reviews on the WTB Cross Wolf and found this article at Velo News: http://velonews.competitor.com/2009/...choices_101423

I've ridden and raced on a set that is now almost worn out and have only good things to say.

I have a set of Crosswolfs that I have raced on and I like them, pretty supple and can handle low pressure pretty well but I prefer the Michelin Muds on my A wheelset. I don't think I'd pay full price for the Crosswolf over the Muds or the Clement PDX.

Pretty good all around tread pattern though I found them a little smaller than I generally like. That was back when I used narrow rims though. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again if the price was right. fairly soft (though not Hutchison soft) so I wouldn't use them as a training tire if you ride a lot of road.
