WTB Venture TCS Fast Tyre (Dual DNA/SG2)This gravel bike tyre features a large, high-volume footprint that allows for more working edges of the tread to always be in contact with the terrain. WTB has also equipped this bikepacking-ready model with a rounded profile with vertical channels to enhance cornering characteristics on your adventures. Coming complete with a Dual DNA compound and high-volume casing, this is a great choice of upgrade for riders who want a fast, comfortable roll with great cornering traction.Among WTB’s most versatile drop bar tyres, the Venture delivers optimal performance across the widest range of conditions to serve as a truly set-it-and-forget-it gravel tyre for riders who demand traction across a wide variety of terrain. Elevated centreline ridges provide consistent working edges that dig in whether hammering up a climb or leaning into a turn. Two rows of outer knobs provide confidence regardless of how hard you’re cornering while also providing substantial sidewall protection. Venture is the tyre of choice when the destination is unknown but you’re sure to encounter a variety of terrain along the way.SG2 Puncture ProtectionThese tyres are available with WTB’s SG2 Puncture Protection, which is a lightweight nylon insert that provides bead-to-bead coverage and ensures every area of the tyre is defended against slashes and punctures. As events become progressively rougher and cyclists pedal farther, gravel gets tougher. It only makes sense for gravel tyres to become tougher as well.Features: Compound: Dual DNA Puncture Protection: SG2 Use: Gravel, Bikepacking Level: TCS Light/Fast Rolling ETRTO: 700cx40mm: 37-622; 650bx47mm: 44-584; 700cx50mm: 47-622 Tubeless Ready: Yes, TCS Tubeless Casing: 700cx40mm: Single-ply 120tpi; 650bx47mm: Single-ply 60tpi; 700cx50mm: Single-ply 60tpi Min/Max Pressure 700cx40mm: 30-55 psi; 650bx47mm: 25-50 psi; 700cx50mm: 25-45 psi Single or Pair: Single tyre Weight: 700cx40mm: 551g; 650bx47mm: 555g; 700cx50mm: 600gTechnologies: Dual DNA Compound: Two rubber compounds. The centerline tread features a firmer rubber compound that rolls fast and resists tread wear while the side knobs are composed of softer, slower-rebounding rubber to improve control and grip. All Dual DNA tyres fall within the Fast Rolling category. SG2 Puncture Protection: Nylon fibres have a flat profile, which reduces the amount of rubber needed to fill the gaps between fibres and minimises weight. SG2 was specifically designed to be a puncture protection layer, but it also improves air retention and eliminates seeping at the sidewall. Tyre Pressure Information: WTB’s tyre pressure recommendations have changed over time due to further developments in technology. Riders may always reference the markings on their tyres for allowed pressures ranges, but WTB calculate pressure recommendations based on an average rider weight of 160-180 lbs and suggest increasing the minimum recommended pressure by 2-3psi for every additional 10 lbs of rider weight. Never exceed the maximum tyre pressure marked on a tyre.Manufacturer’s Part Numbers: W010-0844 Black 40mm 700c W010-0843 Black 47mm 650b W010-0845 Black 50mm 700cBuy WTB Wheels & Tyres from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
