Specialized Rolls Out 650B Tires, New Models Soon?
For consumers and retailers alike, Specialized tires have long been some of the best performing tires available for the money, so we’re excited to announce they’ll now be offering some of their options for 650b wheels. The company is the last major manufacturer without a 650B model in their mountain bike lineup, but we hope the new tire offerings is a sign of things to come. Shortly before Trek announced it’s first 650B offerings, the company also quietly began stocking 650B tubes and tires on their dealer support site.
The 650B tires currently available are: Fast Trak S-Works (in 650b x 2.0)$65 MSRP, the Ground Control (in 650b x 2.1) $55 MSRP, the Purgatory Grid (650b x 2.3) $65 MSRP, and the Butcher Control (650b x 2.3) $55 MSRP. A 650bx1.75-2.4″ tube with a 40mm valve stem and removable core is also available.
