Thanks to equipment technology and evolution, riders are descending faster than ever.

At these historic speeds, the search for traction is critical. Specialized has a 45-year history of finding grip, always seeking that extra edge. We’ve developed the high-damping, sticky T9 rubber compound to find a balance of grip that doesn’t deflect, providing a relaxed and playful ride quality for any riding style from Trail to Gravity.

Maximum traction and consistent handling are essential when you are pushing the limits. The T9 rubber compound was created for those of us who go out of their way to find white-knuckled moments. T Stands for the Tread compound. The number stands for the degree of damping and grip. In other words, Gravity compound + Slow rebounding super grippy = 9 Clicks! Nice Work, Scientists!

T9 Rubber Compound Highlights:

  • Filters high and low frequency keeping your tires planted and you in control
  • Rubber polymers and additives are used to slow down and relax the compound
  • Tread blocks conform and twist at the perfect speed, dissipating stored energy into heat instead of deflection and bounce
  • Unparalleled traction in either wet or dry conditions.
  • Eliminator tire comes in T7/T9 dual tread compound
