My new 27.5 / 650B mountainbike, made for blasting along singletrack. The handling with the new 27.5″ wheels is a great balance of the 26″ and 29″ wheel sizes. It’s built-up with SRAM’s XX1 1×11 drivetrain, Rock Shox Revelation 27.5 100mm travel 1.5″ tapered steerer forks. The through-axle fork has noticeably better steering precision especially under hard braking. The tangerine-orange paint is chameleon-like and ranges from bright orange to almost brown depending on the light levels.

Other components are Shimano XT brakes, Stans Crest wheels running tubeless Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.1″ tyres, a Chris King i7 headset and BB bearings, WTB Silverado Team saddle and Thomson stem, seatpost and their new Cross Country carbon bars.
