Details

Assume the ready position and prepare yourself for trail riding like you've never done before with Giant's Stance 27.5 1. With an ALUXX aluminum frame featuring 120mm of rear suspension, plus a RockShox Recon Gold RL fork up front with 120mm of travel, you'll find yourself conquering new lines both up and down. Giant's 27.5-inch 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. Putting your power down is Shimano's Deore/SLX drivetrain spun by FSA cranks. With all that jump-forward power, you'll need some reliable stopping capabilities, so Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes modulate your crazy speed with ease. The Stance 27.5 1 is ready, it's time for you to be.

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.
