Until recently, quality 650b gravel bike tires have been hard to find, expensive, and relatively fragile. WTB, with their background in exploration off the beaten path, was in a prime position to release something unique, and they did: the WTB Horizon Tubeless Tire. Inexpensive compared to the competition, easily tubeless-ready, and smooth rolling, the WTB Horizon gravel bike tire is just as ready to roll effortlessly down the road as it is grippy on dirt and gravel.
The WTB Horizon Tubeless tire takes a supple tubeless-ready casing and pairs it to a grippy herringbone pattern with cornering channels for greater grip. It’s high-volume size (47 mm) means it soaks up rough roads and more with alacrity. It fits nicely on the road, off road, and where ever; it’s size means it has roughly the same diameter of a 700c x 28mm tire. The Horizon is available in one tire size (650b x 47mm), and comes in a tan sidewall only.
