The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher BLCK DMND 2Bliss Ready, receives sawtooth faces on the tread blocks to increase stability under load and to provide additional biting edges. This, in turn, improves rolling speed as well as control under hard braking and cornering. 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. The new BLCK DMND casing strikes the balance between suppleness and extreme pinch flat protection. In order to descend all-out, you need as much traction as possible, the tire needs to conform and hold on to the ground, but also protect from pinch flats. In order for this to happen, only the treaded part of the tire needs to conform, grip, and dampen, while the tire base offers stability and support for steering inputs. - Folding bead - 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - Pressure: 25 – 50psi - Casing: Center Overlap, Flip Up, and Rubber Apex
The Eliminator GRID TRAIL 2Bliss Ready tire features a new generation of tread that combines an aggressive block design with a well-balanced tread pattern. Its transition knobs help bridge the traditional channel between center and shoulder knobs, making the Eliminator perfect for enduro where versatility is key. The Eliminator still has the bite of a DH tire but also brings the manners to handle well on hardpacked trails. These characteristics also work well for trail e-bikes, too—combining the traction needed to stay in control on the trail with neutral handling on fire roads. Our new GRID TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering better handling at lower pleasures—all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%. - Casing: Additional bead-to-bead protection for exceptional durability, plus sidewall stiffness stability - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 27.5 x 2.6" - PSI range: 20-40, - Approximate weight: 850g
This speed demon from Specialized is perfect for shredding any cross-country trail. With an exceptionally low weight, the S-Works Fast Trak Tire also features minimal rolling resistance and a high-volume casing for a plush ride. The large footprint with aggressive side knobs hooks up in the corners, while the short, well-spaced center knobs with ramped edges keep you cruising fast. The soft tread compound grips great as well, and it's tubeless ready so you can run low pressures without worrying about pinch flats.
