Specialized S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss T5-T7
When you need a race ready tire with a versatile, high performing tread and supple casing for incredible feel and grip, the S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss Ready T5/T7 dual compound tire is a tire you can count on. Epic and Stumpjumper 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.
With this 120 TPI, 2Bliss Ready version you have the evolved Ground Control race tread with Specialized's Block-In-Block design that employs a taller adaptable inner block to pierce the ground and claw for traction with firmer GRIPTON T5 rubber. The outer tread is the softer compound T7 version, which provides the shoulders with more grip. This is tire that can easily be run as a front tire on an XC bike for a race weekend where a more diverse grip level and front cornering control is required. Pair it up with an Fast Trak or Renegade and create the necessary combination of speed and traction for the surface conditions, in part allowed by a great footprint with control at low pressure that is enhanced by the 2Bliss Ready set-up, which features a more flexible and fast sealing butyl bead.
