Product Details

Specialized Ground Control Sport Tyre

One of the most famous names in mountain bike tyres.

Originally produced in the 1980s, the Ground Control is a traction-hungry self-cleaning tyre that helped establish Specialized as a truly ground-breaking MTB company.

With technological input from all Specialized have learned about tyres over the past 30 years, today's Ground Control is grippier than ever.

  • 60tpi casing.
  • Wire bead.
  • 70a compound.
  • Inflation range: 35-65 psi.
  • 680g (26x2.1) - weighed at bike co-op HQ in January 2016.

'Resurrected from the archives, yet modernized with the same FE Analysis as the Fast Trak, we've brought the Ground Control back for the masses! With Adaptive Tread technology, we're able to offer XC Trail riders the most fastest, grippiest tire for all conditions.'
