Product Details

Specialized S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss Tire (26-inch)

It's back! This early '90s stalwart has been updated with new materials, a new tread pattern, and new technology. The new version of Specialized's S-Works Ground Control 2Bliss Tire is a confident-cornering tread that excels in a variety of conditions. Specialized used finite element analysis to optimize the side knobs for grip, create a fast-rolling center section, and provide great braking control. Plus, with Specialized's 2Bliss technology, you can run these sweet tires at traction-enhancing low pressures with no risk of pinch flats.

    Very good but tricky

    By Jazziz

    About Me


    I installed my tire put in the Stans sealant, shake it and next day lost 20PSI, 2 days later remove the tire did a thorough cleaning in the tire and the wheel and tried again and continue to loose pressure on the shoulders. Went to the store to get an exchange and the guy carefully explained that the tire is fine that the problem is to let the wheel rest on a trash can all leveled and flip it over and over. I did this during 5 hours, flip and flip, next day I put 30PSI to ride, I was out for 1 hour and came back with 30PSI. The track was wet from the day before, excellent traction in mud and rocks, predictable loose traction on WET roots. All & all super happy.

    Great in 29er flavor; a bit wimpy in 26'er guise

    About Me


    I've been running and enjoying a 29 x 2.1 Ground Control as a front tire for several months. Great feel and traction on So Cal loose over hardpack, rocks, sand and moist loam. I'd probably put something beefier on for true mud if we had any. I also tried a 26 x 2.3 briefly as a rear tire for AM use but there isn't enough volume or sidewall height for anything but an XC or light trail application. My 2.2 Purgatory is noticeably larger. Like all Specialized 2Bliss tires, mounting is a breeze, holds air nicely, decently durable and reasonably light.

    Good for Racing too

    By MTBRacer

    About Me


    I am using the 1.9 tire for racing in the rear and Specialized Fast Trac in the front. It is probably the best combination for sticky/speed/weight that I could find. It has nearly the same tread pattern as a another Specialized tire I used to race on and performs well in all conditions. Grips roots, mudd, loose dirt and takes off well. I am using this on a carbon full-suspension 29er (different brand) and used it for most of the racing season last year. Great tire if you want confidence in all conditions.
