Why We Like The Butcher Grid Trail 2Bliss T9 29in Tire

The Specialized Butcher Grid Trail 2Bliss T9 29in Tire earns a special place in our hearts and on our bikes. The Big S is no stranger to pushing performance boundaries, and the Butcher is a soft and supple tire offering an enormous amount of grip on the trail. T9 is the softest rubber compound Specialized offers, dampening the trail and keeping planted through the rough and tumble of modern trail and enduro riding. The trial version of the Butcher features the same tread pattern as the Gravity option but cuts down on rolling weight, encouraging big days in the saddle over a variety of terrain.


  • Aggressive all-rounder tire for trail riding
  • T9 compound rebounds slowly for maximum traction and control
  • Ramped and siped center tread provides strong braking power
  • Prominent side knobs dig deep for confidence in the corners
  • Lighter trail casing with reinforced sidewalls for protection
  • Butyl-wrapped bead is tubeless-ready
  • Item #SCQ00F7

Not A Tire Geek.

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I usually ride the tires that come on my bike until they need replaced. I ride the same tires year round. It works for me. When my Maxxis tires wore out I looked for a replacement of similar type. I saw the BUTCHER tires on sale for 39.99 which is a steep discount. The reviews were overall good so I put them on with my Cush Core and I am really pleased after 6ish rides.

Much better than I expected

I've put it through the wringer

I love trying new tires and it's been a long time since I last rode a Specialized tire. Over the last year I have ridden tires from Maxxis, Vittoria, WTB, and Continental, so I can compare these to several of the best tire offerings on the market. I mounted these tires to We Are One Union wheels using a high volume hand pump and they were the easiest tires I've ever mounted. Some of the ease of mounting might be due to the rim design but the tire also plays a part. I was curious how these tires would stack up to my favorite tire combinations; Maxxis DHF WT EXO/MaxxGrip front, DHRII WT EXO/MaxxTerra rear (arguably the industry standard), and WTB Vigilante Light HighGrip front, WTB Trail Boss FastRolling rear (my personal favorite combo). After hitting the dirt, I can say I was very pleased with how this tire handles as a front tire. This tire rolls well considering how aggressive the tread is, and cornering grip is top notch and on par with the DHF. The new T9 rubber compound is super grippy and offers tons of traction in a variety of conditions ranging from loose of hard, rocky terrain, and wet rocks. We don't have a ton of wet roots near where I ride so I can't speak to their ability in those conditions. Taking into consideration the price of these tires they are likely to find their way on my bike time and time again. Compared to the competition, these tires are significantly more affordable and offer equivalent amounts of performance. If you're tired of paying nearly $100 for a quality tire then look no further, these tires are the best bang for your buck. Oh, and it's awesome that Specialized offers these in the Soil Searching tanwall option which donates money to trail building organizations.
