For many years, it was a given that mountain bikes used 26” wheels. The classic wheel size has now been somewhat overtaken by the larger 27.5" and 29" formats, however the 26er still has its place, playing an important role when agility and stability are paramount. For cross-country or tour use, the popularity of 26" mountain bikes has fallen sharply, together with the price. For the dirtjump and pumptrack disciplines, for smaller riders and for long-stroke freeriders, 26” mountain bikes are still popular. Built upon decades of industry experience, you can be sure that models with these "smaller" wheels offer well-balanced riding characteristics.
