No trail is the same. East coasters, west coasters and everyone between is looking for one wheel size that lets you conquer it all without sacrificing quality. On the one hand, 26-inch bikes are great for the tight maneuvers. On the other hand, 29-inch bikes dominate in floating over obstacles. In the past, many riders have had to choose which size they wanted. Today, there’s a new option. A better option. One that combines all of the best features, creating a bike that gives you the best of both wheels.
Consider the advantages of the 27.5” bike known as the 650B:
· good for making tight maneuvers
· helps you easily float over objects
· goes where you want it to go
· doesn’t make you work harder like a 29er; works harder for you
· the larger wheels help you dominate rocks
· excellent for pumping the trail
· offers the support and stability of a 29er
· provides the nimble feel of a 26er
Why 650B Matters
650B is the best option in wheel size because it combines all of the best features of 26ers and 29ers, providing a ride that feels just right. The 650B wheel offers the support of a 29” combined with the nimble appeal of the 26”. By riding with the 650B wheel size, you also get the maneuverability of a smaller wheel like a 26” without sacrificing the roll over power of a larger wheel. Conquering trails means counting on a bike that won’t let you down, with wheels tailored for anything. Best of all, it’s a great all-around bike for a pro looking for a new ride or a new mountain biker interested in their first bike. Its versatility is captured in the best features of the 26” and 29”, a dream for any rider.
