We know you have options when it comes to choosing a bike, and that’s why we wanted to make your decision an easy one. When GT designed their bikes around a mid-size wheel, it was with the rider in mind. The 27.5 inch wheel provides greater rollover versus a 26 Inch wheel without the added weight that comes with a 29 inch wheel. It is like a match made in heaven! The 27.5 inch wheel also means a better fit for riders of all sizes; the wheels fit the rider so you never have to compromise on ride feel. In the end, the way GT design their bikes is not just based on how fast they roll, because they know theres a lot more to your ride than just going downhill. Its also about how your bike performs when you’re accelerating, braking, and climbing.
