Relentless traction takes priority with the WTB Verdict Light tire. Chunky flat-profile outer knobs shovel at all times while an intermediate channel ensures edges can bite when initiating corners.


  • An aggressive, front-focused design digs deep and improves cornering traction
  • Open space between each knob allows the tire to chew through the driest days and fling mud on the wettest
  • The continuously open channel between the intermediate and side knobs provides separate zones of braking and cornering traction
  • All areas of the tread feature substantial knobs: tall knobs dig deep; long knobs hold up to heavy breaking; thick bases refuse to flex
  • Siping depth is optimized on the outermost knobs to improve support without sacrificing traction on wet roots and rocks
  • Standardized Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) nearly eliminates flats and allows lower tire pressures to improve traction and comfort over a traditional tubular tire
  • TCS Light tubeless casing features a single-ply design and is ideal for XC and trail riding thanks to its minimal weight
  • TriTec technology blends 3 rubber compounds for different levels of traction, support and durability based on placement in the tread
  • SG2 puncture protection technology provides bead-to-bead coverage to ensure both the tread and sidewall are protected from slashes and punctures
  • Designed to pair well with the WTB Judge tire on the rear (not included)
  • Ideal for dirt, loose, rocky and wet conditions
  • Note: Tire images shown may not reflect size/color/material options available on this page
