WTB Byway TCS 700c Gravel Tire

The WTB Byway TCS 700c is for days of endless hardpack exploration and gravel grinding while also providing noticeable efficiency on any pavement linking it all together. A swiftly smooth centerline is paired to a textured intermediate section that provides a seamless transition onto small outer knobs for unwavering traction in loose dirt and gravel. Prominent outer knobs also extend down the sidewall to provide an additional level of defense from roadside unpleasantries of all shapes and sizes.

Features:

  • Smooth centerline for efficiency with diamond shaped outer knobs for grip in the dirt.
  • High volume tire enables comfortable ride.
  • Dual Compound rubber means a fast rolling tire with great corning traction.

    Great ... until you need to take them off!

    Everything is great about these tires except one all-important issue too many manufacturers seem to ignore -- the ability to easily install AND remove when necessary. When I decided to swap these for a smaller, lighter set of tires I have, they refused to come off my rims. it was only after a major, hour-long struggle and the use of tools you're *never* supposed to use on tires and rims that I finally got them off. I shutter to think of being forced to change a flat while out in the boondocks.

    Yes, denoting only one start may seem a bit harsh for otherwise good tires. But good tires are utterly worthless if you can't easily get them on and off.

    By the way, the set of tires I replaced them with were Bontrager R2 Hard-Case Lite's, which unfailingly, easily pop on and off.

    Perfect for my road & gravel bike adventures

    Rides smooth & fast on the road. The tire has good traction on the fire trails.

    It's the perfect tire for my gravel bike.

    Great Tires for 60/40 road/gravel! Even sidewall survived a shard of small glass!

    I don't have much to compare against because this is my first foray into any tires over 28mm and also the first time I've gone tubeless however the first couple hundred of miles on these have been great.

    Installation: I have them mounted on Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3V. This was my first time mounting tubeless on a rim and at first I had some trouble but using a bit of soapy water I was able to get the wheel to pop in to place. There was a little beading of sealant the first day or two but certainly nothing excessive. Since it's been fine.

    Sealant: I'm running them with Stan's Sealant and so far I've also seen the power of sealant go to work when I had a tiny shard of glass get stuck in the sidewall. I thought I was out of luck when I removed the glass and the tire was still losing air but once I popped the wheel off and rotated it around a bunch the sealant quickly plugged. Beautiful!

    Use: I'm using these on prob about 60/40 road/gravel. I feel like the smooth centerline is great for the road and comfortable on gravel, towpaths, crushed rock, etc. I did find the wheel slipping at times when I was putting down some power on steep climbs but I also had the PSI at around 50-55 and so this could have contributed to that. Dropping the PSI may combat the slipping a bit.

    Overall, these tires combined with my titanium frame make for a great pairing. I look forward to exploring other similar tires but hopefully not too soon! I'm looking to have these last for a while.

    Also, I did have a quality issue with one of the first two tires I received but, as always, BikesTiresDirect, was lightning fast in helping to resolve. I was seriously bummed for not having it for the first weekend of my build (I thought the tire would show up the following Wed or Thur) and I had it delivered Friday - I couldn't be happier with the customer service here!

    My new favorite all surface tire

    I have been super impressed with the look and the durability of WTB tires for years now - I first rode a set of 40mm Resolutes and loved them, but felt like I was leaving a lot of rubber on the asphalt between gravel roads here in the Mid-Atlantic so my next set was some 38 mm (I think) Riddlers which I also loved and when they started to look close to retirement age I started browsing for replacements and came across the ByWay 40mm and decided to give them a try. The tubeless set-up was super easy on my Chinese (Velobuild.com) 25 mm carbon "cyclocross" wheels and I have a good 500 miles on them so far on asphalt, gravel, grass, single track, mud and tar & chip - they perform great just like the other WTB models - a little spin-out now and again on steep gravel, grass or mud, but not horrible. For the few feet or so I needed slightly more aggressive tread I have miles and miles of carefree riding. No flats yet, Orange Seal works really well with these babies. I almost wanted to say I will not ride these at DK200, but am now having second thoughts after my experience AND reading and seeing so many of the top folks going more towards "slicks" ... I doubt anyone will be disappointed with these tires!

    Excellent All-rounder for Mixed-Surface.

    Bought this tire to replace the wider tires on my Fargo. I became tired of working too hard on hardpack and tarmac surfaces, in-between gravel. These tires are supple and absorb a lot of unwanted vibrations from the ground. I have found that correct tire pressure is very important with these tires (tubeless setup here). Started with ~40 psi and found they were a little squirrely on looser gravel. I reduced the pressure down around 30 psi and they ate the gravel for lunch. Instant stability. I've become a very large fan of these tires. I now find myself riding these tires on tarmac and bike paths more than my road bike. I would purchase the Byway again but would consider the new SG2 technology that just came out. I've had zero issues with the Byways but a little extra puncture protection wouldn't hurt.

    Massive tear within first 100 miles

    Set up tubeless on new rims without issue.

    Did a 50 mile ride. Pressure slowly dropped over the first 30 miles, used a CO2 cartridge and made it home.

    Swapped out my valve stem trying to isolate the problem and added more sealant.

    Second ride: 10 miles over asphalt, followed by relatively tame hard-pack dirt trails. Went over a small rock, got a massive tear where the knobs meet sidewall. Used both plugs I had on me, a blast of CO2, and prayed that it would hold. Had to use my second and final CO2 cartridge about two miles later. But I did make it home.

    12 hours later, and I can tell that the plugs won't be sufficient to squeeze even a little more life from this tire.

    Maybe I just got unlucky, but I've done much more challenging terrain on bargain-bin tires without issue. I'd really hesitate to buy the Byways again. Destroyed in less than 2 weeks.

    Great all around tire so far

    A little on the pricey side but it's exactly what i was looking for on my cross bike. Solid center tread does well on pavement and I have no issues on gravel trails.

    However, these 700x34 tires were the hardest set I have ever tried to seat. I knew it was going to be rough when getting just the first bead over the rim presented difficulty. I had no issues with 700x25 trainer tires, but it took me multiple rounds of soapy water and massaging the tire to get the bead to seat on the rim. So be careful and check the sidewall to make sure its actually seated! Other than that, no issues so far!

    As advertised!

    Bought 4 of these to mount tubeless on our Kona Libre DLs with Easton EA70 AX rim upgrades for Acadia. AS ADVERTISED, great for paved local, park loop and Cadillac Mountain climb and gravel carriage roads. One wheel set, all conditions. Must mention one tire had a sidewall pinhole defect. Never had a problem with WTB product before. Suspect this is very rare. BTD replaced immediately. Kudos for that.

    Look great but leaky from the start

    I bought these to try, started with the 40's and they were very narrow compared to other manufactures, like a 38 and the rubber is super thin. I went witht he 44's like how they look, but as soon as I put them on I noticed leaking around where the sidewall meets the tread. Flatted on my first ride.

    From someone that rides a fair bit, don't buy these tires and save yourself the grief.
