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.
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.
TCS Tough Fast Rolling
Long-wearing rubber laid across two full layers of casing leaves no area unprotected. Developed through real testing during the Enduro World series, TCS Tough tires can take some serious abuse.
