American Classic Wentworth

The Wentworth features tightly-spaced, low-profile center knobs with more aggressive cornering tread for an efficient tire that works well across a variety of hardpack and gravel conditions without sacrificing traction through muddy and loamy sections. The Wentworth is suited for long days of aimless exploration and lining up on rainy race days where anything could be around the next corner. Bead-to-bead Stage 5S flat protection and a tubeless-ready 120 TPI casing help to keep the miles rolling by through harsh gravel conditions.
