Our review

Another great value tubeless-ready option, but it’s more for racing than recreation

As the signature tyre of pro mountain biker Christoph Sauser, you would expect the Specialized Sauserwind Control 2Bliss to be fast, and it doesn’t disappoint.


The super skinny 1.8in width slices through wet conditions, helped by the low, ramped leading edge, hard compound centre knobs.


Cornering grip is improved with a soft compound shoulder sporting well-supported side knobs. The narrow profile is a trade-off in the rough stuff.
