For many long years, the fact was almost irrefutable: mountain bikes have 26” wheels! The classic smaller wheel size has now gained powerful competition from large 29er wheels and the medium format 27.5 "in almost every application. However, the 26er still has its place. This wheel size plays an important role when agility and stability are paramount. In cross-country or tour use, the spread of 26" has fallen sharply and so has the price. For the dirtjump and pumptrack disciplines, for smaller riders and for long-stroke freeriders, however, 26” mountain bikes are still popular. With literally decades of industry experience working with 26” wheels, you can be sure that the models with these "small" wheels offer well-balanced riding characteristics.
