Specialized purgatory 2.2 for the wet season
I’ve used the 2bliss version tubeless on some arch EX rims. They’ve been fantastic! Loads of grip. Admittedly I haven’t yet run them this winter but they were great over our ‘summer’. No issues with sidewalls despite some rocky riding and landing at funny angles. They are wearing at a sensible rate too.Posted 5 years agopedladSubscriber
Yes I’ve just put mine back on after the “dry” summer tyres.
I bought it as a front to do CyB last spring and really like it. Grippy and predictable and a good price for tubeless compared to some of the trendier tyres. No sidewall issues yet – heard some say that problem applies more-so to the lighter weight s-works ones/Posted 5 years agostumpy01Member
Yeah, use one on the front as my ‘all the time’ tyre. Can’t be doing with all this swapping tyres every 5 mins stuff.
If the mud is really claggy, it won’t clear too well, but it works well.
Does seem to grip well in most conditions – I tend to keep the pressure at 30-35 psi.
I’ve got the S-Works version (came on the bike) and not had any problems with fragility, but you do hear quite regularly on hear of people having ripped sidewall issues with S-Works versions. Get the Control version if you can and are worried about durability.Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’ve got them tubeless on my 29er, good tyre for autumn/winter/spring, not a full on mud tyre but unless you’re doing mayhem or it’s ilk then when is a ride ever 100% mud? I had Storm’s the winter before but they don’t work in the dry bits, purgatorys aren’t as good in kilometer after kilometer of hub deep mud, but much much better all round.Posted 5 years agoVortexracingSubscriber
Looking to these as well, as I think a mud specfic tyre, ie the storm is a bit to specific for most trail riding.
The best bit appears to be that they all rave about how good these are in mud.Posted 5 years ago

I’ve had a purgatory 2.2 up front for around 4 months now, brilliant grip in everything except claggy mud.
I did manage to slash the sidewall (control version) riding down a slate face but managed to bodge it back together with fishing wire and duct tape and it’s been fine since.Posted 5 years ago
