Our Verdict

Exceptionally versatile, the 2015 Specialized Ground Control Grid MTB Tyre in 27.5 combines a fast rolling tread with increased grip and traction to ensure confidence on the trail.

Description

Season :

Code : 00115-5015

Brand : Specialized

Weight : 0.2KG

Exceptionally versatile trail tyre, the Specialized Ground Control combines a fast rolling tread with increased grip and traction to ensure confidence on the trail.

The tread of the Ground Control Grid Tyre has been optimised using FE Analysis to ensure that every single knob is place in the correct position and does its job flawlessly.

Additional sidewall protection is integrated into the sidewall of the Ground Control Grid Tyre for increased durability and the added advantage of increased sidewall stiffness for stability.

The foldable bead has been wrapped in Butyl to form an air tight seal with your wheel allowing the use of tubeless sealant to negate the need for an inner tube.

    Specialized Ground Control Grid 2Bliss 27.5x2.3 Tubeless MTB Tyre Reviewed by Mike Tatt,  On 14/06/2017 11:44:08

    5
    I have these fitted to an e-mtb so purchased the Grid rather than the standard to give a bit more wall support to accommodated the extra bike weight. These replace Rapid Robs which came as standard with the bike. Running with Tubes at the moment. Had these for a couple of weeks and put about 200km on them - we are hitting summer here - so cant really comment on heavy winter off roading. Fitting: foldable - so let them find their shape for a day before fitting - dont know if this is needed - but thought it might be a good idea. Flexi bead makes the installation a breeze - used levers for the last bit to make life easy. Pressures: Ran them at over 40psi for about 20k to make sure they were beaded in fully Running 32psi front 38psi rear which seems to give enough cushion with very little roll - still fiddling around to get the best feel. General Impressions: Loose rocks and gravel: - more stable with less drifting back end. Handles the fist sized rocks much better on steep descents with less skipping. Flat Pack: - smooth ride - slower on the downhill that the Schwalbe tyres - but suits me as I feel more in control. Road: I tend only to ride on rural roads some are fairly good - but others are narrow and rough. The Schwalbe tyres have a flatter profile and float along roads with ease and are very forgiving. These Specialised tyres feel a bit slower - (fastest downhill reduced from 42kph to 38kph - but I wasnt really pumping it) not enough to bother me - but seem to be more responsive. There is one particular stretch that has a steep camber which you have to ride if there is any other traffic on the road, the extra grip really helps - no feeling of slippling into the roadside ditch. Mud - Its been dry here for a few weeks but I have access to a short woodland blast which includes a very steep and slippery drop which runs into a sharp corner thats usually ankle deep in mud. Grip is good some sliding on the drop - but thats probably due to my skills (lack of) The tyres cut through the mud easily whilst keeping a strong grip. The mud cleared from the grips quickly. Im actually looking forward to getting out on some wetter tracks in Winter ! ! Cornering - lots of grip - the good sized nobbles cut in well - nice round profile helps sharper turns - good confidence boost as I felt the Rapid Robs could slide out on challenging corners. Conclusion At full price - very good value - at the 50% discount I purchased at - outstanding. They have made a bigger difference to my riding than I thought they could The Rapid Robs are good tyres - but have tighter limits. The Specialised Tyres are more competent and reassuring.

    My question about Specialized Ground Control Grid 2Bliss 27.5x2.3 Tubeless MTB Tyre is...
  • Hi there - can you seal these tubeless tyres against a RIM with a track pump - or do you need a compressor?
    Question asked by Calum on May 15 2017 2:59PM
    You can inflate these with a track pump, it'll take a fair bit of effort, but, it can be done.
