Specialized Butcher CONTROL 2Bliss Ready Tire

The CONTROL casing version of the Butcher 2Bliss Ready Tire carries the tread and speed capability of the GRID options, but is a little lighter and could be paired with a Ground Control rear for more challenging Marathon course or even used this way on a 120mm trail hardtail in the Pacific Northwest, making it more versatile than the pure gravity versions. 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, and the center blocks have been staggered and spaced better for a smoother transition when leaning the bike over.

Meanwhile, the proprietary GRIPTONĀ® 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 and keeping speed high. Once you ride the Butcher, you'll never want another tire for your gravity or fast, aggressive trail excursions.
