When is a 27.5 inch mountain bike the right choice?

Are you at home on technical trails, do you love tight berms and big jumps? Then a 27.5 inch mountain bike from Canyon is the right bike for you. With light, high-end MTBs, you’re flexible and agile on any terrain. Smaller riders in particular benefit from the smaller wheel size. Simply climb on and off you go in search of adrenaline.

What is a 27.5” MTB?

A 27.5 inch mountain bike has smaller wheel diameters and shorter spokes than a larger 29 inch MTB. The construction of the 27.5 inch bike is lighter and stiffer as a result. We manufacture frames and attachments for Canyon 27.5 inch mountain bikes from premium materials such as carbon and aluminium. The power transmissions is direct and effective as soon as you pedal meaning fast acceleration and high speeds. In addition, our 27.5 inch mountain bikes offer strong grip in the corners, balanced riding and great jumping ability.

Good to know: the outer diameter of the rim or the inner diameter of the tyre is 584 mm for 27.5 inch wheels. Sometimes, the French size specification 650B can also be used.

Who are 27.5 inch wheels suitable for?

27.5 inch mountain bikes are suitable for both men and women. 27.5 inch mountain bikes are ideal for smaller people in particular. Canyon MTBs with an XS and S frame are specced with 27.5” wheels. Frames in sizes M to XL, on the other hand, come with 29 inch wheels. Larger wheels give better traction and rollover compared to 27.5 inch wheels, but if you’re looking for something more playful then 27.5” is the way to go. Our guide to MTB wheel sizes can help you figure out whether you would be better suited 29”, 27.5” or a mullet setup.

Tip: thanks to our Perfect Positioning System, you can easily find out the perfect frame size with just two measurements. Simply follow the instructions on the page for your dream bike.

Which kind of riding is the best for mountain bikes with 27.5 inch wheels?

27.5 inch mountain bikes allow you to put down a clean uphill and downhill performance. Progressive geometry and a short wheelbase increase your manoeuvrability and agility on winding trails and challenging terrain. We have optimised the kinematics and rigidity of the 27.5” MTBs for exhilarating high speeds when riding downhill. Strong suspension forks with plenty of travel can handle the hardest impacts. In addition, the wheels have solid rims and wide tyres with maximum grip, which let you tear up the ascents and descents. We’ve strengthened the bike frames around key areas to give addition stability where it’s needed.

When you’re at the bike park or on technical climbs, a 27.5 inch mountain bike has near perfect steering and climbing ability. Long reach, slack steering and steep seat angles improve traction, propulsion and smooth riding. Smaller riders are also less likely to come into contact with the rear wheel when descending steep, technical tracks as they move their weight towards the rear of the bike. Sweet tricks, next level whips and downhill races are much easier on a 27.5 inch mountain bike. Powerful disc brakes will also bring you to a standstill when you need it most. With four pistons and ergonomic levers, there’s a lot of power the tips of your fingers.

What are the advantages of a 27.5 inch mountain bike?

In general, 27.5 inch mountain bikes are lighter, stiffer and have better grip than larger mountain bikes. You can also benefit from the following advantages with 27.5 inch wheels.
