The Buttery Brothers (explanation below), Loic Bruni and Finn Iles, have been riding this new Specialized Cannibal gravity tyre. Looks like it means business.
Specialized Cannibal nutshelled:
- Large centre knobs
- Wide braking edges cut in for maximum deceleration
- High volume casing
- Staggered shoulder blocks designed for predictable high-speed cornering
- Gripton T9 compound
- Grid Gravity 2-ply casing construction
- £TBC but approx £55
The world’s fastest riders are always hungry for more traction. So we teamed up with Loïc Bruni, Finn Iles and Chris Grice from the Specialized Gravity team to develop a mountain bike tyre to tame World Cup Downhill Tracks. Together we cooked up something that will satisfy even the most aggressive appetites. The Cannibal tread pattern has been completely redeveloped, integrating our super sticky GRIPTON T9 compound with a high volume casing that brings superior control to any terrain.
Ride it Or Eat It
Devour the track with unmatched grip, confidence, and control.
The Cannibal tread pattern has been completely redeveloped, integrating our super sticky GRIPTON T9 compound with a high volume casing that brings superior control to any terrain. Staggered shoulder blocks maximize cornering stability and large centre braking blocks bite aggressively into the ground. Engineered to the design specifications of our riders, the Cannibal balances weight and durability with GRID Gravity Casing for Enduro, Downhill and Park riding. The Cannibal delivers the unbeatable combination of grip, confidence and control to devour any track.
Specialized is also launching a Limited Edition kit in conjunction with Loic Bruni.
