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 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, attaching 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, 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. - Casing: Center Overlap, Flip Up and Rubber Apex - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.3", psi 25-50 - 29 x 2.6", psi 20-40
The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher CONTROL 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. 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. - Folding bead - 2Bliss Ready - Casing: 60 TPI - Compound: GRIPTON - Pressure: 25 – 50psi - Approximate weight: 850g
The Specialized Electrak Armadillo is an choice for high-power E Bikes, and other bikes that can handle this size. The Armadillo construction provides maximum flat protection while supporting the entire casing to handle the rigors that these bikes dish out when roaming city streets. The slightly rough, round profile allows for fast riding and ultimate grip, along with smooth transitioning into corners. Also a great choice to install on a 29-inch wheeled mountain bikes to zoom around town!
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 - 25-50 psi
The Ground Control 2Bliss Ready 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. GRIPTON compound helps make this the perfect choice for epic trail rides in any condition. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead, 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.1" psi 25-50; approximate weight 630g - 29 x 2.3" psi 25-50; approximate weight 730g
It's back! This early 90's stalwart has been updated with new materials, a new tread pattern, and new technology. The new version of 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.
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 - 25-50 psi

Perfect for all-mountain and enduro bikes, Specialized's Slaughter GRID 2Bliss Ready Tire rolls fast in a straight line and still bites hard for confident cornering. A low-profile center tread ensures low-rolling resistance and secure braking, while tall side knobs provide the grip needed for cornering traction. The dual-compound tread provides heaps of traction, and the reinforced GRID sidewall and casing wards off pinch flats when you're pinning. And, it's 2Bliss Ready so you can run lower tire pressures, yet laugh in the face of pinch flats. Paired with an aggressive front tire, the Slaughter makes an excellent rear tire.
