Specialized's S-Works Turbo sets the standard for how a performance road tire should perform. Fast, light, and supple, the Turbo's 220 TPI casing meets the needs of competitive road riders. Feel the power of Gripton—the Turbo's extremely low rolling resistance and superior traction comes courtesy of Specialized's proprietary rubber compound and lets you climb, descend, and corner aggressively. Thanks to their BlackBelt puncture protection, you're covered against glass, nails, or whatever else the road throws in your way.
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.
The high thread-per-inch casing let this tire conform to the road/trail for superior cornering and comfort.
