Turbo Cotton Tire

Specialized's GRIPTON compound is one of the best out there. And when combined with an ultra-supple 320 TPI cotton casing, you get a tire that's very special—you get the Turbo Cotton tire. Both materials stand for master craftsmanship, and they work in harmony to create one of the world's fastest tires—providing a clear-cut performance advantage.

  • High-TPI cotton tire for road training and racing
  • GRIPTON compound balances traction with low rolling resistance
  • 320 TPI casing offers a supremely supple ride
  • BlackBelt protection layer helps fend off flats

Flat

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Had these tires for two weeks and had three flats. I guess I’ve been lucky through twenty years of riding never had a flat before. Sidewalls started deteriorating after second ride. Less than 300 miles and in the garbage they go. Getting Conti 5000. Hope I have better luck.

you've never had a flat in 20 years?????!! I'm moving to your town immediately.

I agree with you. I never had a flat until I switched to these tires. Less than 200 miles in and pop. Also, the sidewall is falling apart. I wanted to believe the hype. Back to Conti 5000.

Prolly best tire on the road, but made for racing. If you're using it everyday on the open road you will flat. These are light weight race tires. If you need something with flat prevention get the Gatorskins for training rides.

Not a good tire at all. Price should have been $20, instead of $80. I changed to armadillo never had a flat tire since then.

These tires came with a Specialized S-Works Tarmac. I replaced the Specialized ultralight butyl tubes with Vittoria latex tubes. The ride is sublime with the same smoothness and grip of a latex tubular tire. However, these are ideally used on good pavement. There are very visible wear indicators that if observed, will provide a future warning for flats. I got about 1500 miles before replacement.

My 2020 S-Works Tarmac came with the Turbo Cotton Tires. Look great. Ride great. In 6 months, I have had 10 flats. I even replaced the rear tire 4 months in to see if it would last. I had a flat 2 weeks in. Every small chard of invisible glass or sharp object flats these tires.
