Introducing Specialized Soil Searching Tires
These Tires Build Trails
We created Specialized Soil Searching in 2018 to fuel and support the energy and passion of the worldwide trail building community. By employing trail builders, hosting dig days, and spearheading fundraisers, we’re creating a community to further the development and maintenance of trail systems that are the lifeblood of our sport.
This is why we’re so stoked to share our new Specialized Soil Searching tires with you. Wrap your rims with a set of these tires and support trail builders on every ride. Every Soil Searching tire you buy helps us support Specialized Soil Searching and its mission. When you ride Soil Searching tires, you’ll hit the perfect line for the perfect cause.
Available in our race-winning Eliminator and Butcher tread patterns and equipped with our premium T9 sticky fast rubber, the Soil Searching limited-edition tires come in a striking, classic skinwall casing to create a potent combo that we know is going to help fund a lot of trails.
In 2019 and 2020 alone, Specialized Soil Searching provided over 11,000 volunteer hours through more than 200 sponsored Dig Days on six continents with the help of 50 supported trail builders and advocates around the world. Keep an eye on Specialized Soil Searching for information on an upcoming dig day scheduled in your neck of the woods.
The Eliminator GRID TRAIL 2Bliss Ready tire features a new generation of tread that combines an aggressive block design with a well-balanced tread pattern. Its transition knobs help bridge the traditional channel between center and shoulder knobs, making the Eliminator perfect for enduro where versatility is key. The Eliminator still has the bite of a DH tire, but also brings the manners to handle well on hardpacked trails. These characteristics also work well for trail e-bikes, too—combining the bite needed to stay in control on the trail with neutral handling on fire roads. Our new GRID TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering better handling at lower pressures—all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%.
