Details

With more agility and less weight than a 29er and more traction and efficiency than 26-inch wheels, Giant's Tempt 0 is very enticing. It all starts with Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame that's light and responsive with confidence-inspiring stand-over room. Then you get a Fox Float 32 fork with 100mm of plush suspension and precise steering to guide you through the rough stuff. And it's packed full of Shimano components with 30 speeds for hill-climbing and Shimano disc brakes for great speed control with precise modulation. And, Giant's 27.5-inch wheels and Schwalbe tires provide sure-footed grip to roll over obstacles in your path.

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.
