Meet The New Wicked Will Performance
Schwalbe's newly redesigned Wicked Will has been reborn as an all-purpose trail tire, the new Wicked Will isn't quite XC, and it's not full-on Enduro. Which is exactly the point.
The new Wicked Will slots in between the Racing Ralph and the Nobby Nic. Combining the tread depth of an XC tire with the block shaping, siping, and proportions of a more aggressive tire, you end up with the Goldilocks of trail tires – fast enough for XC use, but enough grip for more aggressive riding.
The secret is in the "semi-ramped" knobs. The center tread blocks are ramped, but those ramps are interrupted, meaning that there is a gap between the two ramp edges. This still allows for a fast rolling, ramped tire, but when you're leaning the tire over, those interrupted ramps provide added lateral transitional grip.
The design also features heavy siping on every tread block. This gives you as many working edges as possible, again enhancing grip for acceleration, braking, and cornering depending on the angle of the siping.
