Your Ride Depends on This

Tires matter at Specialized. In 1976, Mike Sinyard’s very first product was a tire, the Specialized Touring tire. Ever since then, design, innovation, and collaboration with the day’s fastest riders have made our tires the very best in the world. And it’s all led to this moment, to this tire. Our new Turbo RapidAir Tubeless Tire is already changing the world, turning the page on the century-long chapter of tubulars in professional racing. Long live RapidAir.

OUR GOAL WAS NOT TO DEVELOP A TUBELESS TIRE, BUT A TIRE THAT IS FASTER, MORE COMFORTABLE, BETTER HANDLING, AND SELF-SEALING.
—Wolf vorm Walde, Director of Tires and Tubes at Specialized
Fastest on
the Road

After over 40 years, we know how to make a fast tire. And we harnessed this experience to make a tire that not only rolls faster than a tubular, but one that also handles corners with more grip and the smooth compliance that our professional riders demand.

From now on, if the team allows me, I’ll race with them all the time.
—Fabio Jakobsen, Deceuninck–Quick-Step
The Pro’s Choice for
the Tour

At Stage 1 of the Tour, 5 of 8 Deceuninck–Quick-Step riders chose Turbo RapidAir. But the pros started riding RapidAir at the Tour Down Under, even before Fabio Jakobsen won Stage 4 of the Tour of California on RapidAir after a potentially race-ending flat was self-sealed.

Constructed Like
No Other

Instead of three casing layers under a contact patch, RapidAir’s patent-pending construction has just two. We’ll spare you the production details, but it’s created a tire that corners better, installs easier, and has a lower rolling resistance. It’s the fastest-rolling tire our pros have ever used.

This Changes Everything

Tubulars predate the rear derailleur, and we think 100 years at the top has been long enough. Turbo RapidAir combines the best of what we knew clinchers could deliver, while also exceeding the demands of the best riders in the world. The future belongs to Turbo RapidAir.
