Spotted over on Redbull Media’s website, the new Specialized Slaughter is currently being tested on Curtis Keen’s Enduro 29er. With an aggressive outer tread pattern and a semi slick center tread, the new tire has a similar appearance to one of our favorite rear tires – the Schwalbe Rock Razor.

We have no further details at this time, except that the American Dream likes to run his 2.3″ tire with one cup of Stan’s sealant at 33 PSI.

Looks great for fast hard-pack. Excited to buy/sell this one.

Run that with a ground control 2.3 up front and call it a day. Stoked for this one.

One cup (250ml) of Stan’s sealant seems a bit overkill…

KJR there is a small, about 60ml red cup, that comes with each bottle of stan’s sealant.

Let’s add bike checks to the list of ‘places spy shots don’t come from’.

Mindless is dead on – Rock Razer copy.
Just like the Butcher is a copy of the Minion.

@Jeff

If you look closely, the outside knobs are 0.00000000324″ further in than the knobs on the Rock Razer.

Get a clue.

Patrik, you are correct! It is like when Vanilla Ice tried to explain how “Ice Ice Baby” was not ripping off (aka “sampling”) “Pressure” by Queen. 0.00000000324″ different is still different.

My sincerest apologies for my ignorance.

Similar but not the same. The side knobs and center lugs are a totally different pattern. It’ll probably be half the price of a RR.

Show me where you can get a Rock Razor for a 29er

I think the Slaughter name is in line with the Butcher name. I’m looking forward to trying this one.

Similar, but definitely different. Fewer, smaller, and faster center nobs, with more shapely side nobs on this tire. But, hey, who doesn’t like crying plagiarism when he/she is decidedly way off, as long as it keeps the “down with Spesh” banner flying?
