Chase Skidmorewrote a review of WTB Breakout TCS Light FR Tire - 27.5in on January 26, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I built up a new bike with this as a front tire literally a few days before the snow blanketed the trails in Utah. I got a few rides in then, and have been able to make a few winter trips down south for some more riding. I don't have a full season of riding on this tire but I have enough time to know it grips well and holds up to mountain and desert riding. The side wall on this tire seemed really soft out of the box, but so far no issues with punctures from sharp rocks etc. This tire is a good in-between for grip and weight.
