Specialized's Espoir Elite Tire is great for high-mileage training rides. The fast-rolling center section gives way to grippy edges that provide excellent cornering traction. Featuring a folding bead for a supple ride, the Espoir Elite also boasts Specialized's BlackBelt technology for top-notch flat prevention.
BlackBelt is Specialized's most efficient and dynamic puncture protection for their fastest tires. A strip of tightly cross-woven material (see image, red) is tucked directly under the tread, providing ultra-tough puncture and cut resistance. This lightweight barrier protects against glass, nails, or whatever else the road throws in your way, and is highly flexible to keep rolling resistance low.
