With the Crossroads Armadillo tire, Specialized redesigned their popular Crossroads tread, making it the best, most robust multi-terrain tire out there. Whether on your mountain bike or town bike, this tire is ready for the rigors of everyday street life. And with maximum flat protection from our Armadillo technology, plus a rugged casing and smooth-rolling tread, you'll get around town easily without worrying about flats or traction on parkways and cobbles.
Armadillo is Specialized's classic puncture protection technology. A woven nylon cap-ply (see image, light brown) with woven aramid belt under the tread (tan) provides outstanding puncture resistance, while the wire bead keeps the tire economical.
