The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher GRID TRAIL 2Bliss Ready, receives an entirely new tread pattern. Wider shoulder knobs better support load under hard cornering, while the biting edges of the shoulder knobs are moved further inside. The center blocks have been staggered and spaced better for a smoother transition when leaning the bike over. Our new GRID TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering better handling at lower pressures, all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%. Meanwhile, our proprietary GRIPTON compound improves high-frequency damping, gripping the tire to the ground better on both small bumps and rough sections. The low frequencies of the rolling tire deflections pass through unfiltered, leaving no energy absorbed and keeping speed high. Once you ride the Butcher, you'll never want another tire for your gravity excursions. - Casing: Additional bead to bead protection for exceptional durability plus sidewall stiffness stability - Compound: GRIPTON - Pressure: 25 – 50psi - Folding bead - 2Bliss Ready
We took the tread design of the Fast Trak 2Bliss Ready tire a step further by manipulating each knob with FE Analysis. We improved an already proven tread by having more consistent shoulder blocks for better cornering traction, while the block spacing is configured for better self-cleaning. The tread of this 2Bliss Ready version is also slightly wider compared to the S-Works version, which protects the sidewalls and delivers additional cornering bite. Lastly, our proprietary GRIPTON compound gives the tire a livelier feel and more grip in either wet or dry conditions. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead, 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 650B x 2.1": PSI: 25-50, approximate weight 590g - 650B x 2.3": PSI: 25-50, approximate weight 630g
Each knob on Specialized's Fast Trak Control Tire has been shaped with the help of finite element analysis for less weight and less rolling resistance, yet with great cornering traction. The closely spaced center knobs with ramped edges keep you cruising fast and the casing is tough for excellent durability and flat protection. 2Bliss Ready design means you can take full advantage of lower tire pressures and decreased chance of pinch flats.
We view speed and control as a right, not a privilege, which is why we took the tread design of the Fast Trak Sport tire a step further by manipulating each knob with Finite Element Analysis. Paired with extensive rider feedback and design experience, the result is an XC tire with less rolling resistance, more traction, and a rugged casing that's ready for anything. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Wire - Compound: 60a - 27.5 x 2.1", psi 25-50
It's back! This early 90's stalwart has been updated with new materials, a new tread pattern, and new technology. Specialized's Ground Control 2Bliss Tire is a confident-cornering tread that excels in a variety of conditions. Specialized used finite element analysis to optimize the side knobs for grip, create a fast-rolling center section, and provide great braking control.
Specialized's Ground Control GRID is an exceptionally versatile trail tire. CAD engineered knob shapes strengthen knob structure for optimum braking and traction, but keep knob surfaces adaptable for best ground control. The GRIPTON compound helps make this the perfect choice for epic trail rides in any condition. Specialized recommends GRID tires for anyone seeking the utmost in flat and sidewall protection. - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead, 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 650b x 2.1" psi 25-50; approximate weight 680g - 650b x 2.3" psi 25-50; approximate weight 740g - 650b x 2.6" psi 20-40; approximate weight 915g - 650b x 3.0" Max Ride 25 psi / Max Install 35 psi; approximate weight 1000g
The Ground Control Sport is an exceptionally versatile trail tire that uses a tread optimized using Finite Element Analysis. This means that it rolls fast and provides increased grip and traction in nearly all conditions. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Wire - Compound: 60a - 27.5 x 2.1", psi 25-50 - 27.5 x 2.3", psi 25-50
Specialized's Hardrock'R is a long-lasting tire with an aggressive, yet smooth-rolling tread with multi-directional knobs that are sure to improve traction and cornering over mixed terrain. And with the added benefit of its Flak Jacket flat protection, you'll be sure to hit it all with confidence and control. - Casing: 30 TPI - Bead: Wire - Compound: 70a - Flat Protection: Flak Jacket - 26 x 2.0"; psi 35-65; approximate weight 880g - 650b x 2.0"; psi 35-65; approximate weight 960g - 29 x 2.0"; psi 35-65; approximate weight 1000g
Specialized's Purgatory Control 2Bliss Tire has a large, supple casing to float over rock gardens, roots and every other trail obstacle you encounter. Monster traction in soft/loamy conditions comes in the form of squared, biting side knobs with wide, openly-spaced center knobs that also clean the muck as you roll on through. And, the Purgatory boasts Specialized's 2Bliss technology so you can run low pressure and charge rocky sections without worrying about flatting.
Everything has been tuned for control and maximum enduro action on Schwalbe's Hans Dampf Performance. The tread functions with absolute poise and is well behaved in every situation, especially loose, rocky terrain.
Looking for a tire that's more tread aggressive and wider than the mixte-tread narrower Gravel King? The GravelKing SK might just be the tire you need for the more hardcore roads. Aggressive knobs, ZSG Natural rubber compound, puncture protection breaker and AX-A special low rolling resistance casing make the Gravel King a go-anywhere tire. - Black multi-use gravel tread - Aramid (Kevlar) folding bead
