Full Waffle: Full-Gas

The rider completing the long course, who want to go fast, needs to optimise for the road. The BWR is a road race at heart, and it is won on a road tire. We recommend our Formula Pro 700x28. It pairs a grippy compound with industrial strength cut protection.

Full Waffle: Survival

Lets be honest… most of us aren’t trying for the podium. We just want to finish well. For the mere-human we suggest one of our SeracCX tires in 700x32. The SeracCX Sand and SeracCX Edge are the same raw tire but one is molded with side lugs. These tires have become the most popular choice for most riders at BWR California. They have enough volume and grip to get you through the off-road sectors, and the file-tread rolls like a slick on the tarmac. Both tires come with optional X-Guard puncture protection.

Wafer: Full-Gas

The wafer is only half as long as the waffle, BUT it is 50% off-road, including all of the roughest and most technical parts of the course. Even though it doesn’t carry the prestige of the full-waffle, there are still fast riders who race the front of the wafer. Because you will be spending so much time around Hodges, Mule Trail, and Sandy Bandy, and you will not be climbing up to Ramona and back, the fast rider at the San Diego Waffle should ride either the SeracCX Sand 700x32 or the SeracCX Edge 700x32. This is an easy reccomendation. These are the perfect Wafer tires, striking the difficult ballance between grip, speed, and durability that you need to perform at your highest level.

Wafer: Survival

If you are nervous at all about competing in or completing the Wafer ride in San Diego, we have a tire that will take the edge off your nerves. It is the Boken 700x36. This tire gives you some extra volume to take care of you if you select a poor line, and it has slice protection in the sidewalls. The center tread rolls blazingly fast on the road sections too. If you are not racing for the podium, you will be very happy riding the Boken 36 in the California Wafer.

Wanna

So, you wanna try out this BWR thing, but you arent sure you have the appetite for one of the longer distances… We recommend the Boken 700x36. Tough, grippy, and fast, the Boken 36 It is a large enough tire to get you through the treacheries of the course but not so large that you will regret riding it up Muur Van Dubbelberg.

Waffle

The unique charactaristics of the North Carolina course mean our tire reccomendationis the same whether you are trying for the podium, or the lantern rouge. The extreme ammount of climbing and 95 miles of road mean you need the narrowest tire you can get away with. The 50 miles of rooty trails and gravel roads mean that is a 32mm SeracCX Edge. You are gong to need those side lugs so we are not reccomending the SeracCX Sand for N. Carolina.

Wafer & Wanna

For riders competing in either the Wafer or Wanna in N.Carolina, we are reccomending they size up to the Boken 36. This is still a fast race tire on the road, but gives you the volume you crave for the off-road sectors.

Doublecross 38 or 42

Instead of a road race punctuated by off-road sectors, the Utah course is a gravel race punctuated by paved sectors. The IRC Doublecross was made for this kind of race. It handles incredibly well in the dirt, but still rolls fast on the pavement. Choose the 38mm If you are racing the event. If you are riding but not racing, choose the 42. This reccomendation holds no matter the distance; Waffle, Wafer, or Wanna.

DoubleCross FOR EVERYBODY

With nearly 3/4 of the course off-road, the go-to tire for BWR Kansas is the DoubleCross. This tire was engineered specifically for the terrain in Kansas. Choose the 38mm If you are racing the event. If you are riding but not racing, choose the 42. This reccomendation holds no matter the distance; Waffle, Wafer, or Wanna.
