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 Trigger Pro 2Bliss Ready tire; a tire designed to be fast rolling on asphalt, hard-pack, and gravel, equally suited for a smooth cyclocross or gravel course. The tire features two of Specialized’s patented puncture reduction technologies, "Endurant" casing and a "Blackbelt" strip. For the Trigger, Specialized has outfitted the tire with bead-to-bead Endurant casing, offering full protection as well as sidewall reinforcement. For added puncture protection, a strip of tightly-woven Blackbelt material is added under the tread. As this tire features 2Bliss technology, it can easily be set up tubeless, allowing lower tire pressures for added protection against pinch flats as well as improved grip and traction. The use of Gripton compound for the Trigger’s tread also improves traction and insures a smooth-rolling ride through rigorous terrain. This tire is black, both on the tread and sidewall, and is available in size 700 x 38.
