These 6 chosen testers will have a 20 minute, 1-on-1 personalized telephone interview with Wolfe VormWalde – Specialized’s Director of Product Management for Tires and Tubes. Together, they will pick out the best tires for their riding style and terrain. Specialized will send them those to test – and they will fill in the rest.
“Tires are in Our Blood. Mike Sinyard founded his company on the tire category, and throughout the years, our mission has remained firmly fixed on creative market-leading tire designs and technology for every kind of rider. We are tire designers. By focusing on what riders need, we have the freedom to innovate at the highest level. We strive to create tires that are fast, handle better, and are right for your conditions. To do this, we run thousands of computer simulations, test with the most demanding riders, and seek inspiration from a wide range of sources (for example, automotive tire research and wind tunnel aerodynamics). We believe in our tires; so do racers like Aaron Gwin. And now, we want to prove it to you.”
