Aggressive, premier and unwavering…those were words WTB used to describe the highly esteemed Vigilante 2.3 and they still ring true for these wider brethren. They simply dreamt of ripping trails on wider versions of their favorite aggressive mountain tire.
The Vigilante 2.5/2.6 sees a massive increase in both the height and surface area of the side knobs. Tall, stout outer knobs not only able to dig deeper, but also start digging sooner in the initial stages of cornering.
Designed to meet ETRTO standards, TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) tires feature the best of both worlds: they boast the ride benefits & reliability of a tubeless tire with the minimal weight of a tube type tire. This versatile system combines WTB’s casing and tread compound of your choice, as well as a tubeless aramid bead.
TriTec + SlashGuard
All of WTB’s new mountain tires feature TriTec Compound, which utilizes 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.
The top of the center knobs consist of a medium durometer compound to provide traction and durability without sacrificing rolling efficiency, while the outer knobs feature the softest compound to deliver maximum grip and slow rebound.
All TCS Light versions of the new WTB tires feature Slash Guard technology, which incorporates a protective nylon insert spanning the entire sidewall to provide extra protection without the weight of a dual ply casing.
TCS Light High Grip
Glue-like conforming rubber wrapped onto a gram-conscious casing designed to be compliant while still trail worthy. Who says High Grip needs to be heavy?
