The Verdict is WTB's Most Aggressive, Relentlessly Grippy Front-Specific Tire
The WTB Verdict is the tire of choice when unyielding traction takes priority over rolling efficiency. Designed to dig in every way, the flat profile of the Verdict keeps chunky outer knobs shoveling at all times.
Paired to a substantial intermediate channel, this ensures numerous knob edges are biting into the trail while beginning to lean or fully in it. Abundant open space between all knobs allows the Verdict to dig through the driest days of summer and fling mud in the wettest months of spring. The Verdict is guilty of holding it down through loose off-camber corners, railing the burliest of descents.
The Dirty Details:
TCS Tough Casing is composed of two full layers of casing from bead to bead. Regardless of puncture protection spec, all TCS Tough tires feature bead protection for additional defense against pinch flats.
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.
When looking to lay waste to the chunkiest of downs, the Verdict is in!
