Specialized Butcher GRID 2Bliss Ready T9 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 TRAIL 2Bliss Ready version receives an entirely new tread pattern. Wider shoulder knobs better support load under hard cornering, while the biting edges of the sawtooth 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 and super durable GRIPTON® compound offers high-dampening, and rebounds slowly to grip and stick to the ground for total traction and control. 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 TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering much better handling at lower pressure, while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%. It's the perfect choice for your rugged flowing trail and gravity excursions. One ride and you'll be hooked.
