Adventure with the Venture

The WTB Venture tire is designed specifically to give you confidence and allow you to ride wherever you want to go. WTB calls this a "set it and forget it" tire, and it truly is a jack of all trades. The high volume footprint allows for more traction and is less likely to sink into mud and sand. Combining this design with a dual rubber compound and larger corner nobs, this tire will roll quickly and have excellent traction and durability.

Whether you are out on secluded doubletrack, gravel grinding, trailblazing, or anything in-between, this tire will have you covered. Adding in WTB's TCS tubeless compatibility, you will be ready to conquer any feat while riding the Venture tires.

Highlights:

  • Great durability and sidewall protection
  • High traction and stability
  • Excellent in any riding condition

I'm Very Impressed

I'm not new to off-road (33 years and counting), but somewhat new to gravel (<2 years), and years ago Continental came out with a line of race tires that were very scant with tread in the middle, and pretty aggressive on the sides.

The thought was: fast rolling on smooth stuff and something to dig into the corners. I was dedicated to WTB's Velociraptors, but gave these a try when the Conti rep offered them up and was amazed when I didn't slip and slide anywhere (no mud), and was able to wail along with confidence.

When my Nano 40s were wearing out, the Venture looked to be the descendent of that old Conti design, so I bought them and went tubeless with them.

In the last four months I have to say these are everything I need them to be: I ride on pavement to local minor trails, play around for a while and then ride back home. A little sluggish on pavement (at 30psi for my 40s), and the knobs on the side can be unsettling on uneven pavement when they grab and pull on the layer differences, but on the dirt, rocks and mulch of those little trails they stick and roll with an ease I don't notice on pavement.

It's strange: the more gravel or dirt, the faster they seem to work. I did four rides on the backroads around Pagosa Springs last month, and I remain very impressed with these tires. I've been a WTB fan (tires, saddles) for about 30 years, and the Nano's were excellent, but these are great.

Great Tire, kind of pricey though

I love this tire! Great for gravel, paved trails and road riding... not so much for any type of traction in mud.

I�d but again.

My Go-to Gravel Tire!

I used theses tires for 500miles across mixed surfaces from asphalt to gravel to single-track. Smooth down the middle for time on the road and great traction ok hard turns or the occasion right corner drift.

Really happy

Switched out my 2.25 mtb tires for these (along with a carbon fork in place of a fox 34) and really like the quickness and responsiveness. I wouldnt take them into the mud but great on hard trails and gravel.

Fast touring tire!

This is my second set of WTB tires. The first ones were great, a set of Riddlers. But as soon as I put this set of tires on I noticed a huge difference in the speed of the bike. Its probably a little more suited for the riding I do, but its nice to know when the road gets a little rough the should handle that perfectly. Thanks for the great tires

Very please so far!

I have had these tires installed for about 3.5 months now. Mostly gravel, some road and single track. Flatted out a lot with the Gravelkings, not a single flat yet! Great performance in the mud, but also very fast for the width of these monsters. Also very comfortable. WTB nailed this! Thank you

Perfect 700c Gravel Tire for California gravel roads

I spent a ton of time researching a suitable gravel tire for my Ritchey Outback build that fit both the tire clearance and terrain where I live. I landed on the WTB venture as my tire of choice because LA gravel roads are mainly comprised of decomposed granite and sand. What I love about these tires is the centerline tread for the tarmac and the miles I ride until I hit the trails. The tire has taken everything I have thrown at it and has not slipped or lost traction.

Awesome Gravel tire!

We have the WTB Venture on our Salsa Powderkeg. It is awesome on the gravel and rolls well on pavement.

Great price and quick shipping from BikeTiresDirect!

Great traction but fast wearing

WTB makes a great tire. The venture mounted up tubeless with ease and offers great traction when new. But while the soft compound climbs and corners great, the tire (mounted as a rear) is literally bald after 1,000 miles of mixed graveldirtpaved riding. Might sound like a lot, but most tires i've tried last longer.

Great tire

Bought the 50mm for a new adventure wheelset for my rigid 29er. Currently logged over 1000 mi, without significant wear yet. Running tubeless, they have great bite off-road and roll well enough on pavement that I have also commuted all winter on them. Would purchase again.
