Specialized Bicycle Components is a major U.S. manufacturer of bicycles and bicycle equipment, based in Morgan Hill, California. The company produces a variety of gear, including clothing, helmets, and parts, in addition to over 25 lines of bikes. They range from cheaper models such as the Hardrock, P series, and the children's Hotrock, up to the expensive S-Works models for road and cross-country riding, and the Demo for freeride and downhill mountain biking.
Many riders in recent years have used Specialized bicycles in the North American and European professional cycling circuit. Currently, Team Gerolsteiner and Quick Step-Innergetic are riding the Tarmac (a full carbon fiber composite road bike) in the Tour de France. Team Gerolsteiner equips their bikes with Shimano components while Quick Step-Innergetic uses Campagnolo components.
