Developed on the European enduro race scene, the Vigilante is WTB's leading aggressive All Mountain tire, and the top choice for Team WTB's Mark Weir. Square lugs and an open tread pattern bolster stability in loose or wet terrain, while the stiff outside knobs clutch at lean angles like it's nobody's business.
The Comp model features WTB's Durable Casing which offers a high ratio of rubber to thread for a resilient casing that can hold its own to the demanding ways of the trail. Employing WTB's DNA Rubber Compound, the Vigilante Comp's tread is versatile and long-wearing, while the side knobs remain supple for improved efficiency, traction and durability; a perfect recipe for XC training or carousing the trail.
DNA Compound: proprietary 60 durometer rubber compound offers the ideal mix of rolling efficiency and traction for XC and trail riding applications
Durable Casing: high ratio of rubber to thread protects against trail threats and urban pleasantries
Great durable tire, and I even ran it tubeless despite being non-TCS. Never had a problem.
Just be aware that the 2.3 is considerably larger than a Maxxis HRII of the same indicated size. I was unable to run it in the rear because it simply did not fit without significant rubbing (Kona Process 153).
I have the thin wall WTB casing and I'm not a fan. The sidewall is starting to tear and there is an inch-long, horizontal slash between the knobs. It does not seem to be very durable with these issues. The grip is okay, but not great.
I am running this tire in the front with a Magic Mary bike park tire in the rear. The differences are huge when comparing these 2 tires since I run them together. The Magic Mary is heavier, but does not have any slashes/tears and has never been punctured. The Vigilante has small tears, a slash, and gets small punctures from thorns regularly. This tire is definitely cross-country.
For the type of riding I do - mostly downhill trail - I probably will not buy this tire again. However, I might try WTB's heavier casing in the future.
