Let's hope your riding buddies like the sight of your rear wheel, because that's all they're going to see as you rip down the trail on Giant's Anthem Advanced 27.5 0 Team. This composite and aluminum race rig boasts Giant's Maestro suspension and a RockShox Monarch RL shock to tame rocky terrain while fast-rolling 27.5-inch composite wheels accelerate like mad. Up front, the 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork ensures an incredibly supple, true-tracking front end for slashing the corners. Of course, SRAM's 1x11-speed XX1 drivetrain matches that go-fast ethos. Other awesome components include Avid XX hydraulic brakes, Schwalbe tubeless-ready tires, Giant's Contact SLR composite cockpit and sleek, supportive saddle.

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.
