2018 GT Palomar 27.5
GT Palomar features 27.5 inch wheels have quickly gained popularity amongst mountain bikers.
The 27.5 size offers a balance of reduced rolling resistance, which characterises 29ers, and the agility and handling of smaller 26 incher wheels. Larger wheels are able to hit obstacles at a lesser angle than smaller wheel sizes, meaning reduced resistance and loss of momentum as the bike rolls over the obstacle and continues along the trail.
New riders will also love the feeling of improved stability and traction, as the big wheels allow for more tyre tread in contact with the ground.
