Specialized began as a bicycle tyre company and though they're now one of the best known bike brands in the world, they've never forgotten where they started. The current range of Specialized mountain bike tyres has something for everyone, on any bike in almost any weather, on almost any terrain. Specialized are constantly innovating and responding to the requirements of both their sponsored racers and everyday riders. Talk to anyone who has purchased a set of Specialized tyres and they'll tell you they noticed the difference great tyres make to your cycling experience, wherever you ride.

The Slaughter represents the cutting edge of current off-road cycling. You can call it Enduro, All-Mountain, Aggressive Trail, whatever; this is about riding fast over challenging terrain. Whether you're you're racing your friends or the clock, every second is an opportunity for improving. Riders have been asking for a tyre that can enhance speed, while also giving them confidence while cornering. And by lowering the centre tread of the Slaughter Control 2Bliss Ready tyre for high speed, while keeping plenty of knob edges for secure braking, the result is getting you to the bottom first.

This tyre also features much taller side knobs that provide confident cornering traction. Specialized found that it's a real winner as a rear-wheel specific tyre, but it can also be ridden as a front in drier/firmer conditions. The closely spaced centre knobs make for a fast rolling tyre on the way up the hills. Reviewers report that this tyre performs particularly well on 29ers, especially for confident riders who like to 'lean the bike over' and carry speed through the corners.
