WTB releases Resolute 42 “all-weather” gravel tires

by CyclingTips

WTB continues to grow its range of tires for gravel and adventure riding with the Resolute 42, a 42mm-wide “all-weather” model available in both 650b and 700c diameters. The Resolute 42 tread design utilizes small, square-shaped knobs throughout, but with a more tightly spaced centre tread to lower rolling resistance, coupled with a more open pattern on the shoulders for more predictable grip on softer terrain.

Claimed weights range between 442-468g, depending on size, all with tubeless-ready 120TPI casings. Retail prices are US$52-55, also depending on size; pricing for other regions is TBC.
