Specialized Purgatory Control 2BR 26x2.3 inch Tyre

Named after the Durango 100-mile Mountain Bike Race based at Purgatory, Colorado, this tyre is made for big rides where you'll love its big-volume 2.3-inch cut-resistant casing and its big-knob all-weather monster traction.

  • 420/D1 casing for 15% improved puncture and cut resistance.
  • Aramid bead makes the tyre foldable and lighter weight.
  • New tread compound makes the Specialized Purgatory Control 2BR 26x2.3 inch tyre even grippier.
  • Hard 60a centre compound for longevity.
  • Soft 50a shoulders compound for improved cornering adhesion.
  • 2BR means tubeless ready.
  • Can also be used with an inner tube
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 685g.

There's a reason why our MTB pro team rides 2Bliss tyres. They want a tyre that can handle the low pressure they run (sometimes 25 psi) for durability and better traction, but they also want light weight. Specialized 2Bliss blends the best of both worlds. It's not your standard tube type (TT), which is lightweight, but can fall short on puncture resistance and "burps" when used with sealant. And it's not your standard tubeless (UST) that reduces pinch flats and the need for sealant, but often adds 200+ grams. 2Bliss is a whole new design that uses TT casing with a special UST bead, replacing the standard UST heavy backing with strategically placed rubber only around the bead. The result is a perfect tyre for the discerning MTB rider: low pressure allowance, no burping and fewer grams than its forefathers.

If you want to run our 2Bliss with a tube, be our guest. Without a tube, just grab a batch of our AirLock Pro sealant, and you're well on your way to a longer, better mountain ride, again and again.'

Fitted on front tyre with a Ground Control on the rear. Front wheel gripped the ground a lot more then previous tyre, gave me a lot more confidence pushing it into corners. Customer service from Edinburgh Cycles was superb, helped me sort out my order after I order the 29" by mistake instead of the 26" I needed!
