WTB launches new aggressive mountain tyres - BikeBiz
New line of TCS 2.0 rims and accessories also announced

WTB has introduced new aggressive mountain tyres featuring all-new TriTec Compound, as well as introduced a new line of Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) 2.0 rims and accessories.

WTB now offers additional widths and updated tread patterns with the Vigilante 2.5/2.6 and Trail Boss 2.4/2.6 tyres, while the Judge 2.4 is a rear-focused tire designed for aggressive enduro and gravity riding. All-new KOM Light and KOM Tough rims with TCS 2.0 technology provide a more robust tubeless system that is easier to mount more reliable than before.

Completely new to the WTB line, the chunky knobs of the Judge 2.4 tire are designed to provide utmost traction for aggressive enduro and gravity riding in loose and rocky conditions. As a longstanding combo in the WTB line, the Vigilante and Trail Boss tread patterns have been optimised around wide (i29) rims with a high-volume casing and a redesigned tire profile that provides tread overhang to protect the tire from sidewall punctures.

All of WTB’s new mountain tyres feature TriTec Compound, which utilises three rubber compounds to provide different levels of traction, support and durability based on their placement within the tread. The entire tread pattern is supported by a base of high durometer rubber, which also transitions halfway into the height of the knobs and allows for the use of softer knob compounds without the tire folding due to cornering forces.

TCS 2.0 improves upon the most trusted name in tubeless with a better-sealed system that focuses on the junctions between the tire, rim and tubeless tape. A recessed channel along the centre of TCS 2.0 rims allows for installation of the all-new Solid Strip, which prevents tubeless tape from sagging at the spoke holes and results in a smooth, consistent interface between the tire and rim.
