Details

Boosting off roots, snapping out of corners, tackling big drops: do it all with confidence on Giant's Trance 27.5 3. Up and down the mountain, the ALUXX SL aluminum frame is light and stiff for incredible power transfer on quick steeps or long grinding climbs, while the Maestro suspension along with RockShox Monarch R shock give you 140mm of bump-swallowing travel that lets you float over rock gardens. Up front, a RockShox Sektor Silver TK leads the charge with 140mm of forgiving travel on chattery trails or big hits. Speaking of charging forward, the wide-ranging Shimano Deore 2x10 drivetrain keeps you going with quick, smooth shifts every time. And when it comes time to dive hard into the switchbacks, Giant's 27.5-inch wheels respond with agility while the Schwalbe tires bite into terra firma and Shimano discs scrub speed reliably.

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.
