MORGAN HILL, Calif. (BRAIN) — Specialized was notable last year for not following the trend and introducing a 650b mountain bike. But the company is not being stubborn about offering its tires in the newly popular size.

Its first offerings are the Fast Trak S-Works (in 650b x 2.0), the Ground Control (in 650b x 2.1), the Purgatory Grid (650b x 2.3) and the Butcher Control (650b x 2.3).

Specialized is also offering a presta valve tube in the 650b x 1.75-2.4-inch size. It has a 40mm valve stem and a removable core. 

MSRP on the tires: Fast Track: $65.00, Ground Control: $55.00, Purgatory: $65.00, Butcher Control: $55.00.
