    S-Works Turbo T2/T5

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    The S-Works Turbo tire sets the standard for a fast and durable performance tube type race tire. Our all new Gripton T2 center compound is the fastest, most efficient compound we have ever developed. T2 is placed in the center of our dual compound for speed and longevity on the straights with T5 compound on the shoulders for incredible grip through the corners.

    We’ve improved the tire’s puncture protection by 8% with all new hybrid-Kevlar Blackbelt breaker under the tread. Combined with our light and supple casing you’ve not only got improved puncture protection but lighter weight and more flexibility for an incredibly supple and confidence inspiring ride. It all adds up to a S-Works Turbo tube type tire that 4 watts faster per set than the previous S-Works Turbo and that weighs just 200 grams for a 24mm. This is S-Works level speed with a tube.

    Best modern road bike I’ve ridden

    This bike checks all the boxes for light-weight performance, design, handling and appearance. The frame and fork yield a ride that is on the rails, jumps when you start to climb and handles like an extension of your body. Shimano Di2 is flawless. With the option of using wider tires up to 32c, this is the perfect performance road bike.

    Best tyre I have used to date

    I don't understand why people are saying it is slippery. I use this on my rear wheel in dry and wet conditions and haven't had a problem. Not to mention, it is the one tyre that I have never had a puncture on yet. I could be just lucky. I am about to replace it with a new one as it has become very worn. I am also going to replace my front tyre because it is also due. I will keep an eye on how slippery they are. Maybe you need to use two to notice this, but I haven't noticed anything different.

    Abnormally slippery (clincher version)

    I honestly can't understand when I see that the majority of buyers and online reviews say wonderful things about the tire when my experience is exactly the same mentioned by 2 buyers here on reviews. They are abnormally slippery when cornering. The bike literally runs away. I've previously had the old turbo and swork turbo models (always with tubes) and I've never had this scary experience I'm having with this model. All this in dry tar. Money thrown in the trash.

    Fast

    Added 2mph to my usually average speed on my first training ride out with these bad boys (as compared with my previous Vittoria's). Gives the bike a whole new feel and I like that I can run them at lower psi. Would highly recommend

    Smooth & Supple in the Dry

    Fast, smooth and grippy tire in the dry but find it to be a little squirly in wet conditions.

    Faster and more durable

    Loving this new version of the Sworks turbo tire, tube only version . Lighter and 1000 miles with no flats, using a turbo tube on one bike and a latex on another.

    Poor puncture resistance

    Bought these based on a good review on cycling media. I wanted a puncture resistant but light, grippy Autumn /winter tire. On my first trip out in September,both tires front and rear, punctured. I put this down to Autumn debris in the road. Two weeks later I got a bad puncture in the rear tire and discovered that it had ripped through. I will be returning.

    Fast and great handling

    This is the first set of the new turbo T2/T5 that I have used and they are definitely improved over the previous S-Works turbo. Seem to corner better and seem more "grippy", possibly better rolling resistance also? I loved the old Turbo's and these are better. I ran 700x26 on the old and ordered the same size on the T2/T5's and they seem narrower? Could possibly be my perception but will order the 700x28's for the other bike.

    Specialized T2/T5

    Worst tire ever. Very tight and hard to mount on carbon wheels. Multiple punctures, thorns?!!. Went tubeless and small pinholes wouldn’t seal. I would never buy these again.
