TCS (TUBELESS COMPATIBLE SYSTEM)
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) is WTB's standardized tubeless rim/tyre system designed to meet international ETRTO standards and ensure ultimate reliability.
TCS LIGHT CASING
A supple, gram-conscious carcass designed to be compliant and conform to trail objects while still providing a happy balance of low rotational weight and rugged reliability.
TCS LIGHT / FAST ROLLING (LFR)
A fast and efficient centerline tread compound matched to sticky, low durometer side knobs coat a supple, gram-conscious casing designed to be compliant while still trail worthy.
SG2 PUNCTURE PROTECTION
WTB's all-new SG2 Puncture Protection, which is a lightweight nylon insert that provides bead-to-bead coverage and ensures every area of the tyre is defended against slashes and punctures. As events become progressively rougher and cyclists pedal farther, gravel gets tougher. It only makes sense for gravel tyres to become tougher as well.
- Nylon fibers have a flat profile, which reduces the amount of rubber needed to fill the gaps between fibers and minimizes weight.
- Protected SG2 gravel tyres feature a 120tpi casing, which improves suppleness compared to a traditional 60tpi tyre.
- SG2 was specifically designed to be a puncture protection layer, but it also improves air retention and eliminates seeping at the sidewall.
DUAL DNA RUBBER COMPOUND
Dual DNA is the perfect mix of efficiency, traction, and durability. The centerline tread features a firmer rubber compound that boasts faster rolling and increased durability, while the side knobs are composed of softer, slower-rebounding rubber that improves control and grip.
GMS (GLOBAL MEASURING SYSTEM)
WTB's Global Measuring System presents precise tyre widths using two measurements, the casing width and overall width of the tread. Casing width is written first, followed by the tread width. GMS measurements are always provided in millimeters.
