27.4 Wheels
When discussing the pros and cons of the big wheeled bikes, shorter riders find themselves in an ambivalent situation. They want to benefit from the 29" wheels, but suffer from the negative effects when fit is considered. Additionally, the increase in rotational weight challenges many lower watt producing riders, so the performance gains are negated when the rider cannot accelerate the wheel system as quickly. The solution for many riders is 27,5"�. The new wheelsize standard combines the best of both worlds, 29"� and 26"�.
Tapered Headtube
The Scale, Spark, Genius and Genius LT feature a tapered head tube for increased stiffness, safety, confidence, and control.
