Hop on Giant's Reign 27.5 1, let it rip down your favorite trail, and prepare to become enduro royalty. An ALUXX SL-grade aluminum frame is complemented by Giant's renowned Maestro rear end with 160mm of travel, while a plush RockShox Pike RCT3 fork delivers 160mm of cush to handle whatever the trail dishes out. All that sweet suspension is further enhanced by a stellar parts spec, including a SRAM X1 drivetrain and Avid Guide RS hydraulic discs with a 200mm front rotor. The whole package rolls on tough DT Swiss Spline wheels with Schwalbe tires that are dependably rugged so you can charge through everything. Plus, the MRP chainguide keeps your chain locked on, Giant's bar is wide for muscling through the rough stuff, and a RockShox Reverb dropper post lets you keep your flow everywhere.

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.
