WTB Exposure TCS 700C Allroad Tire
The smooth centerline of the WTB Exposure TCS 700C Allroad Tire optimizes efficiency while hatched outer edges provide cornering confidence on rough, unpredictable surfaces.
Exposure is a high-volume tubeless tire designed to tackle crumbling tarmac while still delivering the fast-rolling benefits of a semi-slick road tire. Mount up a set and hit the open, yet sometimes rough, road.

I just went through my second set of these and ordered another set. Great tire for those long road rides on chip seal or rougher paved roads but does just fine on light gravel or dirt paths without too much tech or cornering needed. I use this on a 24mm inner width rim and it bumps out to 38mm but still narrow enough to be suitable for long road rides with folks on 25s etc. mounts up totally fine despite what others have said. Running them at 25-30 psi for my weight(145) feels ideal but it does ok at higher pressures. 120tpi makes it feel a bit more squirmy at lower pressures rather than supple.
I bought a couple 36c Exposures to replace a set of Maxis velocity AR tires that developed lumps under the tread after 1000 miles. These tires are great. They roll easy and smooth and have not had any flats in 700 miles. I'm running them tubeless with Orange Seal Endurance sealant. I weigh 170 pounds and run them at 35 psi on the front and 50 psi on the rear and the ride is very forgiving on on rough asphalt roads. They are hard to install on giant CXR1 wheels but I succeeded using soapy water and tire levers.
Horrible tire to mount. I had to put these on a spare wheel set with tubes in them before mounting tubeless which required a compressor. I ruined one tire trying to get it on the rim and had to buy a replacement and then on the second ride the rear tire flatted. No, the sealant didn't stop the leak so I had to plug a new tire.
I only wish GP5000TL's came in 35c.
I have these on my Specialized Diverge and mainly ride chip seal and rough forest roads, including some gravel. These are ideal for that application in terms of the balance between durablility (when they're new) and ride quality. They wear pretty well but not amazing. I just replaced the rear tire after a season of riding after it got a massive tear from sharp stone. So I would say it gets about 3 out of 5 stars for longevity but if you're willing (and have the budget) to replace them after a season of riding, these are highly recommended.
