When you are looking for the best possible balance of supreme speed and control while flying over pure hardpack, the S-Works Renegade 2Bliss Ready T5/T7 Tire from Specialized is the top choice. With the lightweight and supple 120 TPI S-Works casing, and a tread design that maximizes the low rolling resistance and inherent properties of the dual GRIPTON compounds. It may be a specialty tire for most, but if you live in the desert Southwest, the summer Rockies or dry California, you know this is 29" XC tire that can carry you through all kinds of hardpack terrain, through any line, at speed.

One only wants to live on the edge so much, so the S-Works Renegade's tread has enough shoulder and edge bite to hold a line, especially when taking advantage of low pressures afforded by the 2Bliss Ready tire. Though a rounder crown shape at higher pressures, dropping down to the mid point of the psi range changes the nature of the tire, so know you terrain and your pressures and you can a combination of speed and grip that plays to your strengths.>/p>

The keys to the actual tread performance goes beyond the Block-IN-Block design, to the application of the the dual GRIPTON compounds. T5 is used for the center blocks, which is a bit firmer, wears well, and reduces rolling resistance. For the shoulder knobs, where grip, control and proximity the center of tire override the need for better durability, T7 is used as a softer, more terrain adaptive rubber to optimize grip and control while cornering. When running tubeless, the lower pressures and wider tire footprint only accentuate the effectiveness of the shoulder knobs, creating great hook--up, even on hardpack or off-camber lines.
