Q - Can Comp or Race tires be set up tubeless?
A - No. These types of tires may only be equipped with an inner tube installed. Our tubeless compatible tires will be clearly marked TCS (Tubeless Compatible System).

Q - What length TCS valve stem should I use?
A - All of our alloy rims work great with a 34mm valve stem. If you are using a deeper dish rim, like our Ci24 and Ci31 rims, then we recommend the 46mm long valve stem.

Q - Which width TCS Tape should I use for my rim?
A - WTB recommends using tape that is 5mm wider than your inner rim width. Most of our rims will have the inner rim width listed in the name (i.e. Frequency i23 uses 28mm TCS Tape).

Q - Can your Road Plus or Mountain Plus tires fit in my frame?
A - Due to the huge variety of frame designs out there, we can't guarantee frame fit based on the model name and bike description. We are happy to email tire drawings so you can measure your bike at home, or you can check the Road Plus Compatibility list for bikes that we have already verified fit on.

Please email to start the warranty process.  

Wilderness Trail Bikes, Inc. (hereinafter “WTB”) warrants to the original retail purchaser ("you") that the WTB product for which you received this warranty is free from defects in material and workmanship for the periods and products set forth below from the date of original retail purchase.

  • WTB Carbon Rims – 36 (thirty-six) months
  • All other WTB Products – 24 (twenty-four) months

This warranty is not transferable to a subsequent purchaser. WTB's sole obligation under this warranty is to either (1) repair the claimed defect at no charge or (2) exchange the product with a product that is new or which is at least functionally equivalent to the original product. WTB must be notified in writing of any claim under this warranty within 30 (thirty) days of any claimed lack of conformity of the product.


This warranty does not compromise any possible rights protected by the national laws regarding consumer goods, which the customer always has the right to exercise.

 The WTB Limited Warranty is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The limited warranty applies only to the original owner of a WTB part purchased from a WTB authorized dealer; the warranty is void if ownership is transferred to a third party or the product is purchased through an unlicensed channel;
  2. The limited warranty does not extend to cover products damaged due to normal wear and tear, customer abuse, negligence, incorrect installation, improper maintenance, improper use, alteration, collisions, crashes, or intentional damage;
  3. The limited warranty does not extend to cover damage resulting from causes other than defects in material and workmanship, including but not limited to user’s lack of technical skill, competence, or experience;
  4. WTB tires are designed to be used with tubes, unless specified as TCS compatible. Use of sealant/tubeless conversion kits will void all warranty;
  5. Within thirty (30) days of discovery of any claimed defect of the WTB product, customer must deliver the part, postage paid, with a valid proof of purchase or copy thereof, and with a signed written description of the claimed defect, to WTB;
  6. Proof of purchase date is that specified on the receipt issued by an authorized dealer.
  7. Failure to comply with the aforementioned conditions will invalidate the warranty in which case WTB will not be liable for any damage or injury possibly occurring. Additionally, WTB is not liable for any damage or injury caused as a result of use of a damaged product once damage has been detected. A faulty WTB product will be repaired or replaced by WTB within two months of receipt if it is determined, in the sole opinion of WTB, that the fault is not due to carelessness, improper use or incorrect installation and provided the purchaser has complied with the aforementioned requirements. By accepting replacement part, you waive all rights to other claims arising from the damage to the original part.

The duration of any implied warranty or condition, of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or otherwise, on this product shall be limited to the duration of the express warranty set forth above. In no event shall WTB be liable for any loss, inconvenience or damage, whether direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise, resulting from breach of any express or implied warranty or condition, of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or otherwise with respect to this product, except as set forth herein. Some states or countries do not allow limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts and some do not allow exclusions or limitations of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which may vary, from location to location. This warranty will be interpreted pursuant to the laws of the Country of the Authorized WTB Warranty Center closest to you. The original English language version/meaning of this warranty controls over all translations and WTB is not responsible for any errors in translation of this warranty or any product instructions. No dealer, agent or employee of WTB is authorized to modify, extend and expand this warranty. This warranty is not intended to confer any additional legal, jurisdictional or warranty rights to you other that those set forth herein or required by law. If any portion of this warranty is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such finding will not invalidate any other provision.
