The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher GRID TRAIL 2Bliss Ready, receives an entirely new tread pattern. Wider shoulder knobs better support load under hard cornering, while the biting edges of the shoulder knobs are moved further inside. The center blocks have been staggered and spaced better for a smoother transition when leaning the bike over. Our new GRID TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering better handling at lower pressures, all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%.
Meanwhile, our proprietary GRIPTON compound improves high-frequency damping, gripping the tire to the ground better on both small bumps and rough sections. 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.

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
Greg's Favorite Specialized Tires
Greg shows off his favorite tire combination from Specialized in this week's episode of Tailgate Tuesday! Specialized is really good at putting out these great tires with abnormally aggressive names. Pro hack. If you sharpie out the S in Slaughter, all that's left is laughter.
