Vigilante TCS TriTec Tire

As WTB's leading enduro tire for aggressive terrain, the Vigilante TCS TriTec Tire delivers uncompromising grip on any trail, wet or dry. It's now available in 2.5in and 2.6in widths, so WTB revamped the tread pattern for these higher volume casings. It's intended to be a front tire, so join it with a Trail Boss in the rear for a fast-rolling setup with plenty of grip, or pair it with a Judge if you want the best possible traction in steep, loose conditions.

The tread sees increased height and surface area on both the center and side knobs, expanding grip in sloppy terrain and improving traction while braking. The pattern is also more spread out to better shed mud and debris in wet conditions. The siping has been revised as well to improve cornering.

The Vigilante is made of WTB's new TriTec compound with triple-density rubber. The base rubber is hardened to improve rolling speed and prevent squirming under load, with medium durometer rubber on the center lugs for longer wear life, and softer rubber on the side lugs to deliver maximum grip and slow rebound in corners.

The rubber compound is supported by a single-ply casing on the TCS Light versions to save weight while maintaining durability, and a dual-ply casing on the TCS Tough versions that better resists flats. That being said, the TCS Light casing sees the addition of a new nylon Slash Guard on the sidewalls, making it no slouch when it comes to puncture protection.

Knobby Traction

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently put these on my Mojo 3 to try out a different tire than the Maxxis Minions. So far I am really liking them especially in cornering and downhill. I am running the 2.6 tire tough/traction and I feel like I get better grip around corners and better stopping traction on the way down. On the way up they definitely roll pretty well but compared to other tires out there they seem to roll a bit slower. I chalk it up mostly to the over-sized knobs that I really do enjoy. The traction though is really great. I have found myself able hold a tigher line on loose rock and technical features than I may have on another set of tires. Visually the tires seem to be a bit wider than 2.6 but I think the combination of being on 27.5 and running a 2.6 makes them look bigger than they really are. So far they seem pretty durable as well. I spent quite a bit of time popping and landing into rocky chop and roots and now after riding them a few weeks have barely noticed any wear on the tread and have not yet had any punctures. If you are looking to try a new set of tires that will roll well, have great traction and corner well I would give these guys a try.

What a difference a tire makes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I knew this tire would be better than my Trail Boss for front a front tire. However, I was blown away at just how much better it was, I instantly started taking turns much faster than normal. I have ran multiple Maxxis setups and so far The 2.5 Vigilante up front with a 2.4 Trail Boss rear is my favorite on my enduro. Real confidence inspiring tire.
