Specialized S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss Ready Tire
Epic and Stumpjumper XC and trail riders over the decades have often gravitated to the famed Ground Control tire because of it's versatile surface grip and feel that truly delivers control while carrying speed and inducing confidence. In this S-Works, 2Bliss Ready version you get the best of all worlds if light weight is at the top of your checklist. Coming in at under 600 grams in the 29x21" size, this is tire that can easily be run as a front tire on an XC race bike for a race weekend where a more diverse grip level and front cornering control is required. Pair it up with an S-Works Fast Trak or Renegade and create the necessary combination of speed and traction for the surface conditions.
Specialized uses CAD engineered knob shapes to strengthen and firm up the knob structures for optimal braking and traction, but it keeps the knob rubber surfaces adaptable for the best possible ground control with the proper combination of space and edge diversity. A 120 TPI casing, meanwhile, delivers exceptional weight savings and a supple ride that is enhanced by the 2Bliss Ready bead, which features a more flexible and fast sealing butyl bead. The S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss Ready Tire features Specialized's GRIPTON® compound that maximizes mechanical grip, damps vibration, and offers unparalleled traction in either wet or dry conditions. The name speaks to truth, and the truth is in the confidence you derive from the capabilities of this fun trail tire.
