TCS

Tubeless Compatible System

TUB E-T YPE

Because WTB produces both tires and rims, we can focus on a consistent interface between the two. While all mountain bike tires are based around an established bead seat diameter (559mm for 26" tires, 584mm for 27.5" tires and 622mm for 29" tires) you΄ll find a wide variance in many brands. Some tire brands fit rims so tightly that tools are necessary for installation, while others have a looser fit. WTB rims and tires feature a consistent interface for easy installation.

RIMS / OVERVIEW

GBS Gloabal Bead System

TCS (Tubeless Compatible System) rims and tires provide sealant-tubeless with complete compatibility to international standards. WTB’s proprietary GBS (Global Bead System) design utilizes deeper grooves for the bead seats as well as two raised lips that lock the tire’s beads into place on the rim.
