WTB has just announced a brand-new gravity tire: the Convict.
The Convict is available in three different 27.5″x2.5″ versions, with two different compound options (Gravity DNA and Dual DNA) and two casing options (Lightweight and Tough).
WTB describes the tire this way:
“The Convict epitomizes the toothy tread and robust features of truly aggressive gravity tires. Making easy work of the gnarliest lines, the Convict chews through a wide range of terrain while standing up to every rock and drop it meets along the way. Tall, meaty knobs with multidirectional channels provide steadfast traction whether braking hard or decimating corners. This is not your everyday, run-of-the-mill, let’s-take-it-easy kind of tire. The Convict encourages riders to really get after it and test what both they and their bikes are capable of. With the Convict leading the way, your tires will not be the weakest link. Guilty of first-degree loam assault. Sentenced to life for devouring the gnarliest descents.”
The Convict is already available for sale for $67.95.
