Specialized The Captain S-Works 2Bliss Tire (26-inch)

Designed by the legendary Ned Overend, Specialized's The Captain S-Works is perfect for shredding any cross-country course. Its dual compound tread features firm center knobs that are fast-rolling and soft side knobs for exceptional bite in the corners. Plus, with Specialized's 2Bliss technology, you can run these sweet tires at traction-enhancing low pressures.

Features and Information

  • 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 makes this tire conform to the trail for superior cornering and a smoother 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.

  • Great Traction

Cons

  • Prone To Flats
  • Not For Tubed Application

Best Uses

  • Hardpack

Comments:

This tire has great grip for typical Northern California conditions. It's a nice light tire. However, after 3.5 years on this tire, I have a love/hate relationship with it. I would not recommend it in a tubed application with less than 38 psi. I'm 6"1" 220 lbs and run this tire on a large frame Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp. The Captain is VERY prone to dangerous pinch flats when I run it below 38 psi. In technical drops or fast single track where you may put sudden downward forces on this tire, it will pinch tubes below 38 psi on my Stumpjumper FSR Comp every time. Also, this tire is a thin skinned goat head magnet. The 2011/2012 season was so frustrating, I started putting Tyvek between the tire and the tubes. As a tubeless tire, the sidewall is a little weak and prone to burping at lower psi. It's a fast tubeless tire with great traction on hardpack XC trails when you pump up the psi. All in all, a GOOD tire that is perhaps more narrowly tailored than advertised.

      Great tire for all terrain. Great on climbs, rocks, and packed moist dirt. Good on the dry loose stuff, but not great.
