I'd like to call it the "follow effect." Not that Panaracer is following anyone to the 650B tire market, as most of us know Pacenti teamed up with Panaracer in 2006 to produce the award Winning Neo Moto 2.3 tire, to be followed up with the Quasi Moto and Neo 2.1 tires. Panaracer has also produced the Fire XC Pro for IRD in the 650B diameter, not to mention years of production for 650B rando and pavement tires. This company follows no one to the 650B Market! I refer to the Cedric Gracia factor. With Cedric to the slaying trails on the new Santa Cruz Bronson, it was only natural for Cedric to also ride a Panaracer 650B on the beast. And so, I give you the new DRIVER PRO 2.22" for 650B.
The 650B Driver Pro will offer a folding aramid bead as well as Panaracer Proprietary ZSG compound for increased grip in most weather situations. The tire is being produced in Japan at a weight of approx 570g. Made to fly through the straights and still give plenty of bite on the corners this tire inspires confidence in every dryer condition ride you can throw at it. Retail $54.99
