Why We Like The Vigilante TCS Light FR Tire

It can be tough to stay on trail when rocky descents, rooty messes and anarchic pileups come our way, but not with the Vigilante TCS Light FR Tire. Big, open knobs provide grip on wet and loose or hard and dry trails while the Dual DNA rubber compound blends fast-rolling 60a rubber in the middle of the tire with grippy 50a rubber on the sides. This makes for an ideal balance of cornering and speed that we can't help but appreciate when we're barreling down our favorite runs.

  • The lightweight and grippy tire we want for rugged trail riding
  • Ideal for wet and loose or hard and dry surfaces
  • Dual DNA rubber compound mixes fast-rolling with deft grip
  • Single-layer lightweight casing cuts down on ounces
  • All-mountain 2.3in width for traction and sweet cornering
  • Flexible TCS aramid bead allows for us to go tubeless

Light, Grippy, and Predictable

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have to say I am really happy with this tire. I had ridden WTB's in the past and felt they were soft, and tended to have sidewall roll and let go in corners. I have been running this tire on the front of my Diamondback Mission with Renyolds R27.5 AM wheels. I have found it more confidence inspiring than the Kenda Nevegals that came off of it, during hard cornering. It seems to grip well in a variety of conditions, and what little mud I have ridden though it sheds it well. Tubeless set up was a breeze and I have been running it at about 22psi with no burps or complaints. I like that the tire does not have obnoxious writing on the sidewalls (MAXXIS!!!!), and I have been puncture free. I was concerned about the lighter casing, but this has held up great moving quickly on a lot of sharp rocks. Make no mistake, despite what they say this is not a low rolling resistance tire. It is louder on the road than any tire I have heard before :) I will keep using this on my front wheel when it is time to replace it.
