    Butcher GRID 2Bliss Ready

    The latest generation of the World-Cup-proven intermediate tire, the Butcher GRID 2Bliss Ready, receives sawtooth faces on the tread blocks to increase stability under load and provide additional biting edges. This in turn improves rolling speed as well as control under hard braking and cornering. Meanwhile, our proprietary GRIPTON compound improves high frequency damping, attaching the tire to the ground better on both small bumps and rough sections. The low frequencies of the rolling tire deflections pass through unfiltered, leaving no energy absorbed, keeping speed high. Once you ride this new Butcher, you will never want another tire for your gravity excursions. We recommend GRID tires for anyone seeking the utmost in flat and sidewall protection or additional stability.

    Excellent tyre - never punctured, good grip, low pressures.

    I'd like to preface this by stating I have run Specialized Butcher Grid 2Bliss, and Black Diamond as well as Slaughter and never ever had a puncture in all manner of conditions. Disregard above comment re NOT running tubeless below 30 PSI, I have done down hill tracks at sub 20 PSI with tubes and tubeless (N0t by choice it was just where it was at that time) I would say this was an issue with his rim and spokes, I generally run less than 30 PSI and with mucoff slime I have very little air leak over long periods. ALSO worth mentioning I have not had a tyre seat on a bead this well even after flat pack, I have set up numerous minion tyres and the bead can be loose and flabby, I can even pump up a tubeless set up on this tyre with a hand pump/floor pump because the bead sits that well. This is all experience on Spec Roval wheels. I likely won't change tyre any time soon.

    Squirmy and vague

    This was the OE tire on my 2020 Stumpjumper. I really wanted to like it but I could never really get along with it. I tried a plethora of psi's and fork settings, but I could never find a setting that inspired any confidence. In short, it lacked grip in tight corners and tended to feel squirmy and vague. All of my crashes this season were sudden front end washouts.

    Bummed

    I've been riding the Butcher Grid for the past 3 years and have been very happy with it but this most recent Gripton version seems to not be as stout as previous versions. Also, super disappointed in the fact that I was really looking for a mid fat in a 2.6 but its really more like a 2.3

    Best Front Tire for Enduro

    We have been racing with this Tire and training for 3 years now. I would say it is an excellent tire for Grip , traction especially in muddy rocks and loose terrain.

    Under my expectations

    Very unpredictable when switching from side to side, not as good on roots as it's predecessor, slow rolling. Doesn't clear mud as the rubber is very sticky and it easily gets clogged. The 2.6 it's 61 mm at the side knobs, as the High Roller 2 :) the 2.4 classic one.. It has a bit more volume, but doesn't help you much. Off camber sections are not its preferred as well, tend to slide, and on lose is totally all over the trail.

    Undersized

    This tire is labeled 29x2.6 and is the size of a 2.25! Pathetic, I wasted my money.

    Excellent Tire

    I'm running the fully loaded 29x2.6 with griptron. Run sandy, rutty, loose over hardpack conditions to hard tacky trails with roots. This tire is faster than a dhf and I think it corners better. For $60, hard to beat imo.

    Squirmy, soft and unpredictable. Weak feeling tire

    This tire is a step back from the previous grid cased butcher. Gripton is too soft, slow to react, lacks that maxxis bite and feels very unpredictable. There comes a point when rubber compounds are too soft to make an aggressive high speed tire and this tire is a perfect example.
