The most sticky rubber for its largest Ride: Specialized ‘Hillbilly’ MTB Tire


This specialized version built 2.0 of the Hillbilly knobby rivets through the mud, the wet and thick trails, and grabs sliders.

Specialized took the most sticky rubber of low rebound in its alignment and shaped in aggressive wigs with deep transition pomes and a reinforced edge. The result: The re-incarnation of the Hillbilly MTB tire, built to paste wet slabs and plow through the loam soft this fall.

The Hillbilly comes in 29” x 2.4” or 27.5” x 2.4”, and comes with a grip test (protection of drag and prioritized stability) or Grid Gravity (in two fold housing).

The central step has uniform blocks, in square shape with sipado. Specialized they staged the side edges — the most on board fists seek to pass the center grip to the edge edges while you are banking or braking in a spin.

The specialized T9 rubber is here for a good time, but not necessarily a long time. The tightest compound in its alignment, sacrifices some resistance to the bearing and durability. It is only available on the other three tyres that the brand makes for the most muddy trails: the Eliminator, Butcher and Cannibal.

If you are looking at a rainfall season riding, you You may want to look at Hillbilly lifestyle. BikeRumor’s first trip showed that the tire delivered a feeling of dampening on dryer paths. Jessie-May Morgan found that he gave him control through shifts, correcting it in a 17 psi lower than expected. However, according to her, the tire still stood and felt firm enough in pebbly stitches — possibly due in part to her hard shell.

Get the new Hillbilly Specialized for $75 MSRP (Grid Gravity) or $70 (Grid Trial) in Specialized’s Website. None of the tires were still alive from this writing, but you can check your most rudimentary predecessors (and now discounted).
