Join The Watts Family

A classic all-arounder, Johnny Watts brings a lot to the table. With his versatile tread, Johnny's rubber unites fast-rolling qualities with durability and puncture protection. The knobs give the tire large contact areas which are excellent for rolling, while also reducing vibration and increasing traction on corners.

Johnny is also E-Bike ready, making it the perfect choice for touring e-bikes. The 67 threads per inch tire casings are extra durable, so the e-bike motor does not create excessive wear from the torque. Johnny Watts carries an official E-50 rating.

Johnny Watts comes outfitted with one of the best puncture protection guards on the market: RaceGuard with DoubleDefense Sidewall Protection.


  • knobs with large contact areas for excellent rolling, low vibration, and long-lasting durability
  • Versatile tread for a wide range of use from tarmac to hardpacked off-road dirt
  • Steady cornering behavior on hard ground
  • RaceGuard with DoubleDefense Sidewall Protection

Awesome MultiUse Tire

Perfect tire for pavement, gravel roads and medium difficult trails. Rolls smooth on pavement with enough corner grip for most MTB trails. Set up tubeless so easy and was holding air even before sealant was added. Will definitely buy again.

Excellent tire at a great price point

These tires are perfect for my Trek Powerfly 4. Much much better than the original tires! I ride mostly on pavement and occasionally on gravel. They are great on both surfaces.
