Wolf Vormwalde, Specialized’s “Director of tires and tubes”, and his team have been designing and producing some of the most innovative and best performing tires on the market. Specialized’s tire line-up consists of various perennial favorites for both road and mountain disciplines. With the growing interest in all-road/gravel/adventure cycling, Specialized has answered the demand for high-quality, performance-oriented tires specifically up to the task of these emerging sub-disciplines.
To this end, Specialized is proud to present their Sawtooth 2Bliss Ready adventure tire, or as they put it “THE adventure tire of choice”. The Sawtooth has been developed to handle any road surface while being tough enough to withstand rigorous exploration. When the exploration gets rough, the sharp angles and edges of the tread provide the necessary grip to “hook” onto any surface. If your exploration involves carrying heavier loads, the Sawtooth has got you covered there too; Specialized’s patented “Endurant” casing (120 TPI) reinforces the sidewalls, allowing for heavier loads while simultaneously offering additional protection. The tread, the center of which is reinforced for high-mileage, is manufactured from “Gripton” compound, legendary for excellent grip and control. Directly under the tread is a strip of Specialized’s tightly woven “Blackbelt” material, adding another layer of protection where it is needed most. Finally, the Sawtooth features “2Bliss Ready” technology, allowing tubeless set-up for additional grip and traction, the ability to run lower pressures, and reduction of pinch flats. Available in sizes 700 x 38, 700 x 42, and 27.5(650B) x 1.75, the Specialized Sawtooth is an undeniable tire when it comes to all-road, gravel, and adventure cycling.
