WTB's 32c Pathway tire has quickly become my favorite all arounder and winter tire.
Prior to it's introduction I was a die hard WTB All Terrainasaurus man in winter. The All Terrainasaurus is no longer in manufacture, but was replaced by a very similar tread pattern on the new "All Terrain" model. While I still do believe that the All-Terrainasaurus is the best snow and ice tire in the 32c size available, the lower rolling resistance of the Pathway has won my heart over for year round use.
I've been riding them on my Nature Boy since March, commuting, riding dirt, and even did a 100 mile gravel race on them. For me they are the perfect combination of tread and rolling resistance. If you pump them up to 80psi they handle like a road tire, if you drop them to 60 they flatten out and handle like a file tread cross tire. I liked them so much that I bought a set for my winter Big Block setup as well.
I feel like these are the perfect choice for me for winter. Many riders roll cross tires in the winter, but I hate riding them on pavement because they feel so slow. These have just the right amount of tread, but roll almost as fast as a slick. I haven't had any issues with ice or slipping, and they corner like champs.
The kicker is that they're fairly light and cheap as hell. MSRP is around $25. If you're considering these and are looking at the 38c model, be aware that they run huge. That 38 is going to actually measure out to around 43mm on a 24mm wide rim.
