Specialized Butcher GRID 2Bliss Ready T7 Tire
Specialized is rightfully proud of the Butcher tire design, in all it's iterations. It exhibits incredible levels of speed and control that is required of super aggressive trail terrain and gravity riding. In the current generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher GRID 2Bliss Ready T7 version 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.
At the surface, the proprietary GRIPTON® T7 trail 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 excursions. The new GRID casing is stiff, but supple enough, delivering much better handling at lower pressure, while increasing pinch flat and puncture protection by. It's the perfect choice for your flowing trail and rideable technical sections. One ride and you'll be hooked.
