The Renegade, Fast Trak, and Ground Control tires now use the same identifying and T-numbering system to differentiate the rubber compounds and puncture protection offered by the tire. The greater the number, the slower the rubber rebounds, implying a greater number = more traction.Where the more Enduro and DH oriented models are used in T7 and T9, the brand-new XC tires are offered in T5, T7, or a double substance depending on the tire and its designated use. The T7 substance is what Specialized think is the perfect tire for a wide variety of XC terrain, with optimum grip and minimum included rolling resistance.In the S-Works design, all of the tires feature a T5/T7 substance. For the Grid case, the Renegade is offered in the T5 compound and both the Fast Trak and Ground Control come in T7.There are three casing options for the tires.
