The Eliminator GRID TRAIL 2Bliss Ready tire features a new generation of tread that combines an aggressive block design with a well-balanced tread pattern. Its transition knobs help bridge the traditional channel between center and shoulder knobs, making the Eliminator perfect for enduro where versatility is key. The Eliminator still has the bite of a DH tire but also brings the manners to handle well on hardpacked trails. These characteristics also work well for trail e-bikes, too—combining the traction needed to stay in control on the trail with neutral handling on fire roads. Our new GRID TRAIL casing is stiffer, delivering better handling at lower pleasures—all while increasing pinch flat protection by 15% and puncture protection by 30%.

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
