We’re stoked to announce that Onion River Sports has been chosen as one of the exclusive shops releasing the brand new WTB Byway Road Plus tire RIGHT NOW, just in time for Rasputitsa and the Muddy Onion! Last year, WTB introduced the Road Plus (their name for the wider 650b/27.5″ diameter tread) Horizon slick to provide riders with a dependable, high-volume tire to expand road bikes beyond the usual paved loops. Now, the Road Plus line expands with the Byway, delivering supple plus-size traction, prominent outer knobs, and smooth riding characteristics (with equal diameter to a 700c x 30mm tire) that deliver deep in dirt without compromising performance on smooth pavement sections, too. Available in limited quantities, the 650b x 47mm Byway Road Plus lets riders find comfort on remote gravel roads without being slowed down on the pavement required to reach them.

Want to give these hot new WTB tires a go? Contact us to reserve our Salsa Vaya rental bike or demo our DT Swiss disc wheel set — both equipped with the Byways!
