Details

One look at Giant's Trance 27.5 2 and you can imagine how fun it will be on the trails; so stop imagining and start riding! With an ALUXX SL aluminum frame featuring 140mm of Giant's renowned Maestro suspension, the Trance 2 reduces rock gardens to ant hills. Up front, the Fox Float fork gives you 140mm of travel to tackle the sickest lines. Both feature easy adjustability up the climbs, down the gnarliest descents, and for everything in between. No matter which way the dirt goes, Shimano's Deore/SLX 2x10 drivetrain provides buttery smooth shifts so you're always in the right gear and the 27.5-inch Giant wheels help you dive confidently into switchbacks and spin up to speed. Top it off with durable Giant components including a dropper seatpost, and stop imagining and start riding!

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.
