PEDALING THE
PLANET FOWARD

Since 2018, Specialized Soil Searching has provided financial, organizational, and outreach support for trail systems around the world. We focus on three essential and interdependent aspects of trail work, ambassadors, dig days, and fundraisers, to assist communities in maintaining and growing their trail networks. Trail advocacy is the right thing to do for the sport, supporting not just bike riding, but creating sustainable, multi use trails as well.

WHY NOT SPONSOR
TRAIL BUILDERS
LIKE ATHLETES?

What if the outdoor industry sponsored trail builders the way it currently sponsors professional athletes? We are, it’s called the Specialized Soil Searching Global Trail Ambassador program. We’re supporting a group of Trail Ambassadors from around the world so they can focus on building and maintaining trails for us all.

THESE TIRES BUILD TRAILS.

What’s mountain biking without trails? We created Specialized Soil Searching to fuel and support the energy and passion of the trail building community. By employing trail builders, hosting dig days, spearheading fundraisers, and telling their stories, we’re creating a community to further the development and maintenance of trail systems that are the lifeblood of our sport. And with our new limited-edition Soil Searching tires we’ve created yet another way to support this critical trail work.

PUT YOUR
MONEY WHERE
YOUR THREAD IS.

Available in our race-winning tread patterns and equipped with our premium T9 and T7 sticky fast rubber, Soil Searching limited-edition tires come in a striking, classic skinwall casing. You’ll hit the perfect line for the perfect cause.
