WTB has been crushing it in the last few seasons, creating some impressive treads that blur the lines between DH and trail tires. The new Verdict is an aggressive, front specific tire that brings moto tires to mind more than a bicycle. Tall, meaty knobs are optimized for soft, slippery terrain with ample room for shedding (and shredding) loam, even in the wet, with an even bigger version, the Verdict Wet, intended for muddy conditions.
I’ve been running the WTB Vigilante as a front tire for the last few months, (see our most recent WTB review here) and it’s proven to be a confidence inspiring, traction-eating beast of a tread, that just kills it in PNW loam. The Verdict looks to take it up a whole new level. We’ve been spending a lot of time on off the map trails lately, and been loving the WTB treads on the steep and loose.
If you’re looking to try something new and break away from being another Minion, do yourself a favor and take a look at the latest from WTB.
The Verdict tires start at $83.95. Check them out at WTB.com
