Specialized Roubaix Pro 2Bliss Road Tire
The Roubaix Pro 2Bliss Ready is an endurance road tire that's well suited for smooth and rough roads alike. That's because it's fast like any competitive road tire, only it features a unique Endurant casing with bead-to-bead puncture protection and increased sidewall stability. The casing smooths your ride and keeps you fresh, while the tread handles responsively. Add to this the lower pressures and natural pinch-flat protection that tubeless setups provide, and you'll be hammering through corners confidently in no time.
One major key to the control and rolling speed of the tire is the GRIPTON rubber compound, used in most of Specialized's top tires. It has inherent low rolling resistance and plus grip that offer superior cornering traction. The tread pattern takes full advantage of the rubber, and resembles the All Conditions system Specialized uses, with a low profile directional design. Segmented patterns on either side produce a chevron effect when looked at in full, with the small segmented gaps encouraging grip and water release, while also being able to manage some softer, loose material on pavement. The end result is a higher volume road tire that takes full advantage the 45-90psi via the 2Bliss system. The ride is smooth, yet sure and confident, and cancels out or blocks small punctures and abrasions.
