WTB Riddler 700x45


Product Overview

The 700x45 Riddler is a tire that defies boundaries; wider than your average cyclocross tire but narrower than "29er" rubber.  The tread is a versatile performer with a fast-rolling center and burly cornering blocks to provide a quick ride and predictable steering.  The supple casing and tubeless-compatible design deliver a tire that is quick and efficient while providing excellent puncture protection with your favorite sealant. 

Its tightly packed center section rolls out quickly on any surface while the stocky edge knobs provide tenacious cornering grip - even when things get loose or off-camber.  This tire is a perfect match for the Surly Cross-Check, Straggler, Long Haul or Disc Trucker and provides an ideal platform for unpaved adventures. 

WTB's Tubeless Compatible System (TCS) technology makes for easy tubeless setup on properly designed rims.  We prefer Orange Seal for its quick sealing, long life and lack of funky, acrid odors.  2oz of sealant is plenty for a tire this size, so a 4oz bottle of Orange Seal will handle two tires if you're careful.  Tend to spill things or just want some cheap insurance?  Get two bottles.  

Choose the black sidewall for stealth or the tan for a little touch of classic style.
