WTB Vigilante TCS Tire - 27.5in $72.95
A new way to roll.
Nicely proportionate blocks and spacing allow the 2.3in-wide WTB Vigilante TCS 27.5in Tire to excel in loose and wet all-mountain conditions. As the most aggressive 27.5-inch offering from WTB, the Vigilante features square-edged lugs with siping in order to boost traction.
This helps them claw over broken rocks and wet roots alike, as does WTB's Dual DNA rubber compound and a 60 TPI casing. A 60a durometer center is plenty tacky for damp mountain soil, but not so soft that a day shuttling in desert heat is going to rip the tread up. At the sides, 50a durometer rubber comes into play.
The softer, slower-rebounding, rubber works with shifted side knobs that are siped in order to improve control and grip at the limit. For security, WTB employs its TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) to create a lightweight, sealant-based tubeless casing with a positive bead and rim hook joint that prevents burping and air loss.
The WTB Vigilante TCS 27.5in Tire is UST compatible, with the use of sealant, and it's available in a 2.3-inch width. Please note that this tire does not include either tire sealant or rim tape.
