Pick up the pace all over the mountain astride Giant's Trance 27.5 1. With an ALUXX SL aluminum frame featuring Maestro suspension, as well as a Fox Float Factory shock offering 140mm of bump-swallowing travel, you'll reduce rock gardens to ant hills. Up front, Fox's 34 Float Factory fork gives you 140mm of travel. Both feature easy adjustability up the climbs, down the gnarliest descents, and for everything in between. No matter which way the dirt goes, SRAM's X1/X01 1x11 drivetrain provides buttery smooth shifts so you're always in the right gear and the 27.5-inch Giant wheels help you dive confidently into switchbacks and navigate tech sections. Top it off with durable Giant components including a dropper post to get you in the perfect position, and you'll be picking up the pace no matter what the trail throws at you.
27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.
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.
