Mixed surface bliss
The WTB Riddler 700c Tire blends a fast-rolling center with a taller side knobs to balance speed and cornering confidence for dirt and gravel riding. Dual DNA rubber means a harder, speedier center compound combined with a softer edge compound that allows for increased cornering traction.
Take your tires to the next level with SG2
This version of the Riddler features WTB's all-new SG2 puncture protection. This new protection layer is a lightweight, ultra-thin nylon insert that provides bead-to-bead coverage to ensure all surfaces of the tire are provided with an additional level of defense against punctures.
Exactly how much more durable are they? Lab tests show the addition of the bead-to-bead SG2 puncture protection layer to a 120tpi casing provides 33% more sidewall protection and 17% more tread protection than the standard 60tpi offerings without SG2.
While SG2 is primarily a puncture protection layer, its tightly woven fibers also improve air retention, which prevents seeping at the sidewall and helps maintain pressure between rides.

Great light gravel tire
Use for mixed gravel/dirt trail riding and on rough pavement trails. Also use for winter commuting when road shoulders fill with dirt and debris.
