Specialized The Captain Control 2Bliss Tire (26-inch)

Designed by the legendary Ned Overend, Specialized's The Captain Control is perfect for shredding any cross-country course. Its dual compound tread features firm center knobs that are fast-rolling and soft side knobs for exceptional bite in the corners. Plus, with Specialized's 2Bliss technology, you can run these sweet tires at traction-enhancing low pressures.

Features and Information

  • In order to use Specialized 2Bliss (tubeless) Ready tires as tubeless tires, you must use a tubeless/sealant kit, which is sold separately.
  • This is a folding tire. Folding tires have synthetic beads, which make the tires lighter for easier acceleration and climbing, plus make them easier to install and remove, too.

Good tire for the money, i run mine tubeless on mavic UST rims, a great training tire for the off season due to the versatility of the tire. It can really handle anything. I use mine for training in the non racing season!

    Comments:

    I have tried several tire and tube combinations over the years. None compare. In fact, when I thought these were worn and needed replacement, I bought some Kevlar tires that were so hard and heavy that I immediately put the Captains back on the bike. I will ride them until they look like roadies. I am a lot more confident cornering in dicey, loose stuff and quite happy on roots and rocks as well. Good grip and worth every penny. They are soft, though, so best to minimize road time on the way to the trail. Highly recommended.
