Details

Pick up the pace all over the mountain astride Giant's Trance 27.5. With an ALUXX SL aluminum frame featuring Maestro suspension, as well as a Fox Float Factory shock offering 5.5 inches of bump-swallowing travel, you'll reduce rock gardens to ant hills. A beefy BB92 bottom bracket shell and OverDrive tapered head tube means optimal power transfer and pinpoint tracking. The neoprene chainstay guard and 142x12mm DT Swiss thru-axle are the perfect finishing touches; break out of your reverie and get loose aboard Giant's Trance 27.5.

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.
