Whether your route covers rough roads or fast gravel, or even both in the same day, Washburn is built for the job.

Its center slick provides awesome rolling efficiency on pavement and packed dirt, while the shoulder lugs take over in the turns, digging in for confidence in loose corners.

- Center tread is smooth to minimize rolling resistance and maximize speed.
- Transition lugs are tightly spaced to provide progressive initial cornering traction.
- Side lugs are spaced out to dig in while cornering and when riding over loose surfaces.

Teravail's Durable casing uses the same foundation as the Light & Supple casing but includes layers of sidewall and puncture protection.

What are some of the advantages of the Durable casing?

Our durable casing provides additional protection against cuts and punctures, but those layers of protection also reinforce its structure. The result is stiffness that prevents squirming when riding at lower tire pressures or initiating hard corners.

What are some potential reasons the Durable casing might not be the right choice?

If you live in a region without many trail hazards and your riding style doesn't involve heavy loads or high-speed impacts, you might prefer to save weight and stick to the Light & Supple casing.

When would you recommend that someone opt for the Durable casing?

Teravail recommends the Durable casing to anyone planning an extended ride through uncharted or variable terrain and those who live in regions notorious for eating up tires. It’s also an excellent choice for loaded or touring applications or riders who enjoy descending at high speeds, as the structure of the Durable casing provides additional stability and control while allowing for a broader operational range of tire pressures without squirming.

Teravail's Light & Supple casings use a one-ply, 60 TPI configuration without additional sidewall or puncture protection. We’ve found that the structure of the 60 TPI casing provides a reliable tubeless seal while protecting the tire from light trail debris and impacts.

What are some of the advantages of the Light & Supple casing?

Removing the additional layers of protection makes the casing lighter and more compliant. This allows the tread to conform to the terrain, providing both grip and ride comfort.

What are some potential reasons the Light & Supple casing might not be the right choice?

It’s not a great choice if you frequently ride sharp, rocky terrain or have a loaded or touring bike. The Light & Supple casing will be more susceptible to punctures and sidewall cuts and offer less stability when cornering on a heavy bike.

When would you recommend that someone opt for the Light & Supple casing?

When riding road, gravel, or XC and trail-riding in regions with limited sharp rocks, the benefits of the Light & Supple casing’s reduced rotating weight and additional compliance likely outweigh the risks. If you are unsure about the risk of punctures or sidewall cuts in your area, chat with your bike shop or local ride groups.

Tubeless setups come with many benefits:

  • Fewer flats – Tubeless tires virtually eliminate the “snakebite” flats that occur when a tube is pinched between the tire and rim. Tubeless sealant also fills many of the punctures caused by road debris such as glass, wire, tacks, etc.

  • More traction – Tubeless setups let you run lower tire pressure without fear of flats. Lower pressure means a larger contact patch (more of your tread touching the ground), which boosts traction.

  • Better ride quality – Lower tire pressure also means your tire can absorb many of the bumps on the road and trail. This cushion creates a comfortable ride quality that feels like floating.

  • Lower weight – If you’re currently using wire-bead tires and standard tubes, a tubeless setup will likely shave some weight. Keep in mind that tubeless tape, valves, and sealant all add weight, so if you’re already using lightweight tires and tubes, you may not see a big difference.
