Known as ‘plus’, ‘650b’ and ‘27.5”’, these mountain bikes feature a slightly wider tyre than usual and play a significant role when it comes to choosing the most optimal size of mountain bike for a cyclist, in terms of geometry. 27.5” wheels and tyres have enjoyed a huge boost in popularity in recent years, and they’re now one of the most common size of mountain bikes- and for good reason, too. Some of the many advantages of choosing a MTB with 27.5” wheels are their ideal blend between the sharp acceleration and light feel of smaller, 26” wheels; and their consistent and stable rolling action, characteristic of larger wheels. With 27.5” mountain bike wheels, you can enjoy a supreme blend of speed, handling and power as you handle any terrain with ease. 27.5” mountain bikes are also suitable for smaller riders who want to experience something similar to a 29” bike, without having to struggle with uncomfortable bike geometry.
