Details

Giant's Stance 27.5 0 stands at the ready for all your trail-shredding ambitions. With an ALUXX aluminum frame featuring 120mm of terrain-conquering FlexPoint suspension, not to mention a Fox Float CTD Evolution fork up front throwing down 120mm of travel, you'll find yourself trying new lines both up and down the trail. 27.5-inch Giant wheels are quick and nimble through technical stuff and roll over everything else with ease, while Maxxis rubber keeps you all but glued to the dirt. That means, of course, you can power down the trail with confidence, and you'll do exactly that with Shimano's SLX/XT drivetrain on duty. With all that jump-forward power, you'll need some reliable stopping capabilities, so Shimano's SLX disc brakes modulate your crazy speed with ease. And, you'll find yourself in perfect position scaling up or rallying down thanks to Giant's dropper post. Meet a bike as ambitious as you are.

27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.

27.5-Inch (650B) wheel/tire performance.

Efficiency: Increasing the wheel diameter decreases the angle of attack (the angle at which round objects meet square objects). The lower the angle, the easier it is to roll over obstacles and maintain momentum.

Traction: With a larger diameter, the tire's contact patch increases, putting more rubber on the trail. A 27.5-inch (650B) has nearly the same contact patch as a 29er for superb acceleration, braking and cornering.

Weight: The weight of a 27.5 wheel, tire and tube is only 5% more than an identically built 26-inch wheel. Compare this to a 12% increase with a 29-inch wheel. Lighter wheels mean a lighter bike, and better climbing and acceleration.
