WTB Venture TCS Light/Fast Rolling tire
Venture is the set-it-and-forget-it gravel tire for riders who demand steadfast traction on a wide range of surfaces. Elevated centerline ridges and dense intermediate peaks conform to any terrain during out-of-the-saddle efforts while two rows of outer knobs provide both the support and sidewall protection you need to really push it in the corners. Venture is an excellent choice when both the terrain and destination are unknown.
- Dual DNA compound
- SG2 protection
- Usage: Adventure Road, Gravel
SG2 is unique puncture protection technology that provides bead-to-bead coverage toÂ ensure both the tread and sidewall are protected from slashes and punctures.Â The nylon fibers within SG2 feature a uniquely flat profile, which reduces the amount of rubber between fibers. Improving the fiber-to-rubber ratio increases puncture resistance, reduces weight and improves the overall liveliness of a tire. While SG2 is primarily a puncture protection layer, its tightly woven fibers also improve air retention to better maintain pressure between rides.
Tightly-spaced centerline tread provides a smooth and efficient ride on pavement and hardpack surfaces while still providing the grooves and knob edges needed to maximize accelerating and braking traction on loose dirt and gravel surfaces.
Supple Intermediate Ridges
Rows of dotted ridgelines are repeated along the transition zone of the tread. Tight spacing allows the ridges provides a nearly continous contact patch that increases efficiency as a whole, while the ridges are able to individually conform to the terrain and therefore increase braking traction and cornering confidence.
Large, high-volume footprint allows for more of the working edges of the tread to be inÂ contact with the terrain. Increased surface contact between the tread and terrain results in more traction without the need for tall knobs that reduce rolling efficiency.
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) is WTB's standardized tubeless system. These tires feature a TCS tubeless casing, which nearly eliminates flats and allows lower tire pressures to improve traction and comfort over a traditional tube-type tire.
