The Specialized Butcher GRID Trail tubeless mountain tire received an entirely new tread pattern based on input from World-Cup DH and Enduro riders over the past couple years. Wide shoulder knobs support load under hard cornering, while the biting edges of the shoulder knobs are moved further inside for a smoother transition when leaning the bike over. Pair these design changes with the high dampening properties of the Gripton T9 compound and you'll be sticking to the ground, perplexed by the incredible amount of traction and control you have.
The GRID TRAIL casing is a step up from GRID with more reinforcement, delivering better handling at lower pressures—all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%.
