27.5“ (650B) hardtail mountain bikes
Hardtail mountain bikes with 27.5" wheels offer a great compromise between manoeuvrability and overall riding behaviour. They are typically designed more for agility and acceleration than their 29” counterparts. An increasing number of manufacturers are also opting to design their smaller frame sizes for 27.5" wheels and the larger versions for 29" wheels, in order to ensure a correct riding behaviour for the rider. When selecting the right model, the quality of the components, the weight and the price all play a decisive role in addition to the wheel sizes.
