Specialized Hillbilly 2Bliss Tire 29


Intended Use

  • Street "Street" tires are lightweight with minimal to no tread. Casings will have varying levels of flat protection depending on brand and application. Street tires tend to be comparatively narrower
  • XC "XC" tires must be lightweight and have low rolling resistance above all. Single-ply sidewalls are common if rocks and technical terrain are not issues. Very low profile knobs cut down weight and increase rolling speed
  • Trail "Trail" tires show a combination of reduced weight for climbing and acceleration. Traction and protection against pinch flats while descending is increased compared to XC tires.
  • Enduro "Enduro" tires tend to feature more traction than trail tires, but less protection and support than DH tires to keep weight manageable for climbing. More prominent corner knobs and wider casings are common
  • FR/DH "FR/DH" tires have tough casings for pinch flat and puncture protection. Extra sidewall support allows low tire pressure. Large volume, aggressive knobs dig in and grab through turns and provide confident bike handling and effective braking

Loam monsters and mud crushers—eat your hearts out! Specialized's Hillbilly 2Bliss Tire is here.

This tire's tall and widely spaces knobs are exemplary examples of a classic "spike," or mud tire. Deep knobs are designed to cut through the surface level (where it's wet and slippery) and get down to where the traction is...quite literally "digging for traction." The Grid casing delivers maximum puncture protection at only a small weight penalty, and being tubeless ready means all you need is sealant.

Dual compound rubbers give you the best of both worlds, softer cornering knobs for traction and harder center knobs for longer wear. If your local is soft, muddy, or loamy, get after it you Hillbilly.
