Verdict & Verdict Wet 2.5

The Verdict family presents our most aggressive front-focused tires for days where relentless traction takes priority over rolling efficiency. Tall, chunky knobs dig deep into soft terrain regardless of how loose or sloppy it may be. Abundant open space between all knobs gives them room to dig through the driest days of summer and fling mud in the wettest months. The Verdict family is guilty of holding it down through off-camber corners and chundery descents. 

VERDICT OR VERDICT WET? 

Verdict is the do-it-all spike designed to handle loose, technical trails. Its toothy knobs dig into soft terrain and grapple through rocks and roots. Verdict Wet provides taller knobs that punch through muddy terrain to provide dependable traction in unpredictable and greasy conditions. Dry and dusty during the loose summer months in California, Colorado or Italy? Go with the Verdict. Wet and sloppy like an average spring ride in the Pacific Northwest or UK? Go with the Verdict Wet.

PAIR IT WITH A JUDGE

The Judge 2.4 rear tire compliments their usage with equally robust knobs that emphasis claw-like braking traction while also keeping rolling efficiency in mind. Looking to keep the front upright while you steer with the rear? That’s what you get with the Verdict/Judge combo.

TRITEC AND SLASH GUARD: 

Verdict and Verdict Wet 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 supportive rubber, which transitions halfway into the height of the knobs and allows for the use of softer knob compounds without folding under cornering forces. The tops of the center knobs consist of an intermediate compound to provide traction and durability without sacrificing rolling efficiency. Outer knobs feature a soft compound that delivers maximum grip and slow rebound. All TCS Light versions of the new Verdict tires feature Slash Guard technology, which incorporates a protective nylon insert spanning the entire sidewall to provide extra protection without the weight of a dual ply casing. Verdict Wet is only available with a TCS Tough casing and therefore isn’t available with Slash Guard.

FEATURES:

  • The Verdict tread pattern excels in loosest, rowdiest conditions where relentless traction takes priority over rolling efficiency.
  • 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.
  • Pair it with the Judge 2.4 as a rear tire for claw-like braking traction that matches the tenacious grip of the Verdict tread.
  • Optimized for use with i29 rims.

WHICH TIRE CASING IS BEST FOR ME?
  • TCS Light
    • Single-ply 60 tpi casing. The tread is wrapped over a single layer of 60 tpi casing to create a gram-conscious level designed to be compliant and grippy, while also minimizing weight for cross-country and trail riding.
  • TCS Tough
    • Dual-ply 60 tpi casing. The tread is wrapped around two layers of 60 tpi casing to provide an unbeatable combination of puncture protection, durability and support. Out TCS Tough casing provides ample protection for aggressive trail, enduro and gravity riding. TCS Tough tires are also an excellent choice for bikepackers who prioritize durability above all else.
  • Many of our TCS Light mountain tires feature a level of puncture protection called Slash Guard.
    • TCS Light tires with Slash Guard feature a single-ply casing with the addition of a nylon insert spanning the entire sidewall to provide additional sidewall protection without adding unnecessary weight. Slash Guard provides an intermediate level of protection between TCS Light and TCS Tough for those who want extra sidewall durability without the weight of a dual-ply casing.
SHOULD I CHOOSE HIGH GRIP OR FAST ROLLING TIRES?
  • High Grip
    • Our softest compounds.
    • Compounds prioritize grip and traction above all else.
    • Softer knobs better conform to the terrain and rebound slower to provide unrivaled grip.
    • Ideal compound for use as front tire
      • Although many aggressive riders, as well as those living in wet climates, prefer High Grip on the rear as well to provide ultimate traction in exchange for a bit more rolling resistance.
  • Fast Rolling
    • Compounds that prioritize rolling efficiency as much as they do grip/traction.
    • Slightly firmer knobs hold their shape and don’t transfer their energy to the trail as much as softer knob does.
    • Ideal compound for use as a rear tire, although often used on the front on XC and gravel bikes where efficiency is of utmost importance.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT COMPOUNDS IN WTB TUBELESS MOUNTAIN TIRES?

We place various durometers of rubber at strategic areas within the tread to achieve different levels of traction, durability and efficiency depending on when and how that area of tread contacts the ground. Durometer is a unit of measure used to show how soft or firm a rubber compound is.

  • TriTec Compound
    • Three compounds provide optimal levels of traction, support and durability. A base of high durometer rubber supports the entire tread and transitions into the knobs to prevent folding or squirming. Medium stiffness center knobs cap the base layer to provide traction and durability without sacrificing rolling efficiency, while soft compound side knobs deliver maximum grip and slow rebound for increased cornering traction.
    • Available in both High Grip and Fast Rolling.
  • Dual DNA Compound
    • Two rubber compounds. The centerline tread features a firmer rubber compound that rolls fast and resists tread wear while the side knobs are composed of softer, slower-rebounding rubber to improve control and grip.
    • All Dual DNA tires fall within the Fast Rolling category.
  • Gravity DNA Compound
    • One rubber compound. Conforming, tacky rubber creates glue-like traction with tuned rebound characteristics designed to take harsh hits yet not fumble for footing.
    • All Gravity DNA tires fall within the High Grip category.
WHAT PRESSURES SHOULD I RUN IN MY WTB TUBELESS TIRES?
  • ONE OF THE GOLDEN RULES OF TUBELESS is to always know what tire pressure you’re running. Check your tire pressures before every ride with a digital gauge. Don’t trust your floor pump gauge unless you know it's accurate. Even small variances in tire pressure can create very noticeable differences in traction, comfort and confidence. We want to make sure you’re maximizing the performance benefits of your tubeless system.
  • Always stay within the recommended tire pressures printed on the side of the tire.
    • If you’re compressing your tire all the way to your rim on heavy hits or can feel the tire folding while cornering…you need to add more pressure.
    • You’ll want to increase pressure in narrower (and therefore lower volume) tires as a mean of providing additional support, while lowering the pressure in wider (and therefore higher volume) tires will provide more traction without losing cornering support.
    • For plus-size tires in the 2.8-3.0” range, riders often run tire pressures in the teens.
    • High volume gravel tires, like the Venture 50, tend to perform best at around 30-35 psi. In that pressure range, it provides support and efficiency, without giving up comfort or traction. Too high of pressures will provide a jarring ride, which will cause unnecessary fatigue and discomfort. Of course Venture 50 is the biggest gravel tire we make and a narrower tire would require more pressure. For example, a 40mm-width gravel tire will likely perform best around 40-45 psi.
    • Take all of these with a few grains of salt and adjust to your riding style, the terrain you ride, and your weight.
  • Ultimately, there are two main things we’re trying to avoid here.
    • Rock hard tires. Unless you’re riding extremely aggressive downhill trails at an elite level, 35 psi is going to be way too much pressure for a large majority of riders. Too much pressure can quickly cause loss of traction and control.
    • The “that’s good enough” method of inflating tires. Pinching your tire, regardless of how many years you’ve been riding, is not an accurate method of determining tire pressure. Use a digital gauge and write down the pressures before you ride so that you’ll have something to reference next time you get ready to ride.
