Don't worry though, we have a lot more Mountain 29" Tubeless Tires in stock than that.
WTB Bronson TCS Tubeless Tire - 29in $0.00
All about grip.
WTB has always seemed to understand that 29ers are more than a passing fad. That's why they've always made tires for big wheels, and we're glad to have the choice of their latest tread design for our 29er bikes. The knobs on the Bronson 29 Tire are swept back at a gentler angle than the Wolverine, and they have notches that allow them to conform to a multitude of trail surfaces, from loose to hardpack, and from wet to dry.
On hardpack trails, the notched transition and shoulder lugs can deform to offer up a kung-fu grip on semi-solid surfaces and rock. On the other end of the moisture spectrum, the Bronson's tapered lugs shed sticky mud well enough to get you through it without caking over and becoming a slick. The Bronson has ramped center lugs to roll with minimal loss of speed. Their shape is again similar to the center knobs on the Wolverine, but where they differ is the spacing and that the knobs on the Bronson differ with regards to the width of their spacing. Here they're phased in an alternating pattern of wide then narrow. The height of the knobs increases from the transition knobs to the shoulder knobs. This gives the tire a predictable feel when you begin to carve into shallow lean angles in fast corners. The tread was designed to optimize performance along with WTB's Dual DNA rubber compound that's firmer in the center to accentuate the fast rolling tread and softer on the sides for awesome cornering traction.
The WTB Bronson 29 Tire has a 2.2" casing width; it's enough tire for reliability on any terrain, and it's beefy enough to offer up real traction for backwoods adventures.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Great front tire, especially when things turn wet. Compound is soft so it will wear faster in the hard packed dirt. But that is always the trade off ....
What a beast
I bought this as my front tire for winter and early season use. I has not disappointed. It grips well, sheds mud and rolls fast for a tire this aggressive. I wouldn't be my first pick for a dry, hard pack tire as I would want something that rolls easier. I run it tubeless and the casing is large enough to not bottom out at lower pressures. I may be swapping it out pretty soon, but will definitely be putting it back when trail conditions demand it.
