The Details

A smooth-rolling tread allows you to glide around town with ease while the shoulder knobs dig into soft ground to provide grip when you venture off the paved streets of your local area.

Maximum puncture protection is provided by Armadillo technology, combined with a rugged 60 TPI casing to prevent almost every puncture suspect from affecting your ride, including thorns, glass and even tacks.

These tyres have been rated as one of the "best commuting bike tyres: rubber for riding around town" by CyclingNews:

"With a rugged casing and well-supported side knobs, the Crossroads Armadillo is the best tyre for commuters whose ride takes them across gravel, dirt and pavement. While the tread blocks do add some rolling resistance, the centre strip is low profile to minimise the drag. As you move towards the edge, the transition blocks gain some height and provide consistent grip as the bike leans over, while the soldier knobs are well supported for cornering traction.

The tyres feature a wire bead and utilise Specialized's Armadillo flat protection, which will stymie broken glass, thorns and cuts through the sidewall. However, as with many of the tyres here they aren't particularly lightweight but will last seemingly forever."

Our Verdict

Specialized's popular tread has been redesigned for 2016 to create the most robust, multi-terrain tyre on the market. Whether on your MTB or town bike, the Crossroads Armadillo is ready for the rigours of everyday life.
