Was getting ready to go out for a spin when I noticed this on my front Bontrager XR4 Team Issue tire after just two rides.

The air bubble is easy to press, so I'm guessing that air is leaking from the tire and creating a bubble under the graphics label. FWIW, I'm running a tubeless setup. Anyone see something like this before? Would you continue to ride on this tire?

Looks like the inside may have been scored possibly.
If not, can you get it warrantied? Clearly its not punctured from the outside(label is saving you)

Might be just a pinhole or could be a blow out waiting to happen.
I dont know if MTB tires are warrantied or not, but check it out before you ride that thing again.

I wouldn't ride it. it would be all I would think about and how if I took a big hit I could possibly blow it out and ding my wheel...
