Resolute is the ultimate all-weather gravel tire for those who don’t fuss over the intricacies of specific-usage tread patterns. Small, square knobs deliver consistent bite into a variety of terrain, while the ample spaces between them prevent packing up when conditions become fun (a.k.a wet). Truly all-season in nature, its 42mm width makes it your set-it-and-forget-it gravel tire for endlessly undulating roads through all varieties of weather.
The Resolute 42 uses small, square-shaped blocks to create a 1-2-1-2 centerline tread that is tightly spaced to minimize rolling resistance. Slightly offset and openly spaced intermediate blocks provide a consistent transition area that provides ample support while still allowing mud evacuation. Buttressed side knobs are angled and occur in pairings to further aid in shedding muck while an additional layer of rubber connects their bases to assist in stability and guard against abrasion. The Resolute 42 tire was designed around a 23mm inner rim width to ensure an optimal tread profile on a rim that would provide ample volume.

Light Fast Rolling
The "Fast Rolling" version comes with a centerline tread features a firmer rubber compound that boasts faster rolling and increased durability, while the side knobs are composed of softer, slower-rebounding rubber that improves control and grip.
TCS (Tubeless Compatible System)
TCS tires boast the ride benefits of a tubeless tire with the reduced weight of a non-UST tire. TCS tires combine WTB's lightweight race casing with a sealant tubeless, UST compliant bead. No problems with conventional rims.
Included in delivery: 1 tire
Weight supplement: manufacturer's specs
Note: Tubeless Ready tires require tubeless compatible rims/wheels, tubeless valves, tubeless rim tape and sealing fluid for tubeless mounting. Sealant fluid is not required for tubeless UST tires, but is recommended for increased puncture protection. Installation should only be carried out by qualified personnel.
