It's back! This early '90s stalwart has been updated with new materials, a new tread pattern, and new technology. The new version of Specialized's S-Works 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. Plus, with Specialized's 2Bliss technology, you can run these sweet tires at traction-enhancing low pressures with no risk of pinch flats.
Tubeless ready tires are compatible with both tubeless-ready and standard rims. When used on a tubeless-ready rim with a special tubeless rim strip or rim tape, valves and sealant (sold separately), the tire and rim form an airtight chamber, allowing the tire to be inflated without a tube. This lets you run lower pressure for optimum comfort and control without fear of pinch flats. When used with a standard rim, the tire can be mounted and inflated with a tube.
The high thread-per-inch casing let this tire conform to the road/trail for superior cornering and comfort.
