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 latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher GRID 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 this new Butcher, you will never want another tire for your gravity excursions. We recommend GRID tires for anyone seeking the utmost in flat and sidewall protection or additional stability. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.3", PSI 25-50, approximate weight 890g - 29 x 2.6", PSI 20-40, approximate weight 975g
The 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.

The Ground Control tire, with our CONTROL casing, delivers plenty of versatility and flat protection. Not only does it feature improved cut-resistance, but we've also optimized the tread using Finite Element Analysis. It features our own GRIPTON compound that maximizes mechanical grip, dampens vibrations, and offers unparalleled traction in either wet or dry conditions. - Bead: Folding - Casing: 60TPI - Compound: GRIPTON - Pressure: 25 – 50psi - Approximate weight: 29 x 2.10": 640g / 29 x 2.30": 740g
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.

The Renegade 2Bliss Ready tire is suitable for both XC training and racing with its light, grippy, and supple properties. Accordingly, it's perfect for fast accelerations and climbing in hard-pack terrain. It has a fast-rolling tread design with engineered knob blocks that enhance cornering traction and creates better braking effectiveness. Compared to its S-Works sibling, this 2Bliss Ready version has a tread pattern that's slightly wider and denser in order to better protect the tire against cuts and pinch flats. And now, it also features our own GRIPTON compound that maximizes mechanical grip, damps vibration, and offers unparalleled traction in either wet or dry conditions. How? Our GRIPTON compound recipe filters low and high frequencies, keeping your tires planted and you in control. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Butyl wrapped bead = 2Bliss Ready - Compound: GRIPTON - 29 x 2.1", PSI: 25-50, approximate weight 565g - 29 x 2.3", PSI: 25-50, approximate weight 630g
The Eliminator CONTROL 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 good manners to handle well on hardpacked trails. These characteristics also work well for trail e-bikes, combining the bite needed to stay in control on the trail with neutral handling on fire roads. - Folding bead, 2Bliss Ready - Pressure: 25 – 50psi - Casing: 60 TPI - Compound: GRIPTON - Approximate weight: 820g
Turn your mountain bike into a road warrior with Specialized's Fatboy Tire. Fast and smooth, this tire cruises city streets with ease. Plus, this city slicker features Specialized's Flak Jacket technology for excellent flat prevention.
We took the tread design of the Fast Trak 2Bliss Ready tire a step further by manipulating each knob with Finite Element 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 - 29 x 2.3", psi 25-50, approximate weight 640g
Our Compound Control tire is the answer for any rider looking to launch an urban assault or perform at their peak level at the local skate park. That's because it provides awesome, fast rolling traction, whether you're riding over concrete or asphalt. And with our Control casing, you get the added benefit of cut-resistance and extra sidewall stiffness. - Casing: 60 TPI - Bead: Foldable - Compound: 60a - 29 x 2.2", PSI 35-65, approximate weight 750g
