Lets hope your riding buddies like the sight of your rear wheel, because that's all they're going to see as you power down the trail on Giant's Advanced 27.5 0 Team. This rocket-like carbon and aluminum race rig boasts Giant's Maestro suspension and a RockShox Monarch RL shock to tame rough terrain while fast-rolling 27.5-inch carbon wheels propel you over tough obstacles. And, a tapered OverDrive 2 steerer and 15mm through-axle on the 100mm-travel RockShox Sid XX fork ensure a true-tracking front end for slashing the corners. Of course, the Advanced-Grade Composite frame dispenses with all unnecessary weight, and SRAM's 11-speed XX1 drivetrain matches that gram-shedding ethos. Other awesome components include Avid XX World Cup hydraulic brakes, Schwalbe tubeless-ready tires, Giant's Contact SLR carbon cockpit, and a sleek, supportive Fizik Tundra saddle.

Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug

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.
