Specialized's Eskar Armadillo Elite 2Bliss is a rugged off-road tire built for epic rides. The aggressive, multi-purpose design features moderate knob spacing and a large casing, making it great for both hardpack and loose, loamy conditions. Its dual-compound tread features soft shoulders for cornering traction and a harder center for excellent durability and low rolling resistance. Plus, this tire features Specialized's Armadillo technology for world-class puncture protection and it's tubeless so you won't have worry about pinch flats either.
Specialized's 2Bliss (tubeless) tires are compatible with tubeless and standard rims. When used with tubeless rims, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber, allowing the tire to be inflated without a tube. This lets you run lower pressure for optimum comfort and control without fear of pinch flats. When used with standard rims, the tire can be mounted and inflated with a tube.
The 120-thread-per-inch casing helps this tire conform to the ground for superior cornering and a super-smooth ride.
This is a folding tire. Folding tires have synthetic beads, which make the tires lighter for easier acceleration and climbing, plus make them easier to install and remove, too.
