Description

Time to go faster.

The WTB Wolverine UST Tire is like the X-Man that shares its name -- stylish, fast, and with claws. A great all-conditions tire that favors hardpack, it's something most of us can get behind and grab on to.

The tire is designed to be tubeless (UST), which means you can say goodbye to pinch flats. A tubeless system allows you to run less air pressure, enhancing the grip of the tire's tread. Better traction, less vibration, and no flats lead to a great ride. We recommend running a bit of sealant within the tire to quickly seal thorn or debris punctures.

The WTB Wolverine UST Tire uses an Aramid bead, DNA rubber, and lightweight 120TPI casing. DNA rubber is a fast-rolling high traction 60a durometer compound for all conditions. The tread and casing are Black. The tire comes in two sizes 1.95 and 2.2. The 1.95 weighs 698g and has a Global Measurement System (GMS) size of 47/49. The first number is the widest point of the casing, in millimeters, the second number is the widest part of the tread. The 2.2 tire weighs 840g and has a GMS size of 54/52.

I've been riding my Specialized Enduro Pro bike nine miles to work. I have Specialized Enduro Sworks tires on now but blew my rear tire through the side wall this morning. I don't think I want a crossover tire because I like the ability to take the bike right to the trails. How is the WTB tubeless tire? Should I be looking at something else?

Great Tubeless

On the roads and the trails these tires have exceeded my expectations as well as my abilities. I had to really lay into a turn on a loose gravel/dirt road before I felt the bike start to skid out and the only reason was to see what the failure point would have been. Likewise when climbing a short steep hill in soft dirt I had no chance of making it up anyway. I've also but at least 60 miles on them just on the roads and the tread barely shows any sign of wear so far. Installing them was a breeze and I measured the width with some calipers and they are true to size, if anything a little wider. At max pressure they were 2.25 inches. When the time comes I will be buying these tires again.

isn't it true that you risk a bent rim with tubeless tires??

Best Answer Responded on

I've never had this problem. You can run lower pressure without as much risk of flatting, which could lead to dinging your rims if you're hitting big rocks at speed. Other than that, no. You're not going to risk a bent rim with tubeless tires.

Are these tires tubeless compatible ???

WTB does not make a UST compatible 29er tire yet.

Does the Wolverine come in Front and Rear...

Does the Wolverine come in Front and Rear specs or just Front? If just Front - should you reverse rotation for rear tire?

Responded on

They are multi use tires. You can run them front or rear. They roll fastest when run in the direction indicated on their side walls. Under some conditions (loose gravel climbs for example) reversing the rear may be better. You will just have to the rear both ways and see what works best in your area.
