All the traction you could need
Gave them 4 stars just because they're a very niche tire, not something I'd roll all the time. That said, they've been my go-to gravel tire all winter. Plenty of traction on snowy, muddy, looser conditions. My experience with WTB tires in general has been great. Maybe a little difficult to set up, but once on the rim I really liked them (I've run Horizon in the past and currently keep a set of Byway's mounted during summer). The Sendero isn't something I'd run all the time, like I said above, but when traction is the goal, this one provides plenty. Considering their intended use, I wouldn't grade them down for rolling resistance as they are most likely to be plowing through snow or mud or other terrain that provides far more resistance than the tire/tread. If that's a concern for you, I'd probably look at something more like the Raddler/Riddler.
