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 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 T7 tire features a 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 extremely predictable on soft to hardpack trails. It’s perfect for enduro and E-bikes where versatility and confidence are key. Our GRID TRAIL casing is a step up from GRID with more reinforcement, delivering better handling at lower pressures—all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%. Building on this solid base, the T7 GRIPTON® compound enhances rolling speed while still providing tons of grip.
With our limited-edition Specialized Soil Searching tires you can support trail builders on every ride. Every Soil Searching tire you buy helps us support Specialized Soil Searching and its mission. You’ll hit the perfect line for the perfect cause.
