WTB is among a growing number of companies to offer a tubeless tire for cyclocross. The California-based company also has a new tubeless rim to complement it.

The Cross Wolf tire has been updated with a TCS casing. The 700x32mm tire is intended to perform well over a wide range of conditions. The US$54.95 Cross Wolf uses a dual durometer (60a/50a) rubber compound and has a claimed weight of 360g.
The Cross Wolf features the same 60tpi casing and terraced tread pattern as its tubed predecessor, which has been available for several years
The ChrisCross rim is designed to be paired with the Cross Wolf tire. It has a machined braking track, a generous inner width of 19mm and a UST-compliant bead hook to mitigate the risk of burping air at low pressures.
The ChrisCross is only offered in a 32-hole drilling
The ChrisCross rim retails for US$75 and has a claimed weight of 435g.
WTB does not currently offer a disc-specific cyclocross rim, although the company’s 29in Frequency Team rim features similar dimensions to the ChrisCross.
Both the Cross Wolf tire and ChrisCross rim are available now.
