WTB introduces new Verdict and Verdict Wet tires at Sea Otter

By Steve Frothingham

MONTEREY, Calif. (BRAIN) — On the first day of Sea Otter, WTB will unveil two new aggressive TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) tires for enduro and gravity riding.

The new Verdict and Verdict Wet tires share a tread pattern designed for loose conditions. Differentiating the two tires, Verdict Wet provides taller knobs that punch through sloppy and loose terrain to provide dependable traction in unpredictable and muddy conditions. Abundant open space between all knobs allows the tread pattern to dig through the driest days of summer and fling mud in the wettest months. These new tires are available in both 27.5″ and 29″ diameters with a 2.5″ width.

All Verdict and Verdict Wet tires feature WTB’s new TriTec Compound, which utilizes three rubber compounds to provide different levels of traction, support and durability based on their placement within the tread.

The Verdict is available with a TCS Light or TCS Tough casing.

Depending on the TCS casing and diameter, both of the new tires have MSRPs ranging from $70.95 to $83.95. Verdict and Verdict Wet will be available in North America in mid-May while Europe will receive tires in mid-June.
