Falcon Argon Mens 27.5″ Alloy Front Suspension Mountain Bike
The Brand New Falcon Argon 2016 27.5″ (650b) Mountain Bike has been updated for 2016 and now forms part of a stunning new range of 3 bikes that cover the minefield of wheel sizes currently existing in the mountain bike world- its smaller wheeled cousin is the 26″ wheel Xenon and the bigger wheeled 29″ wheel Radon
Being part of a new three bike stable makes choosing your next mountain bike easy, why 27.5″ wheels? the pros of the new bigger wheel size-
Right in the middle ground of the new wheel size battle, is the amiable 650b or 27.5″ – offering the best of both worlds. The 650b wheel has a touch of the light & nimble, fast acceleration of the 26”, along with the rough terrain cruising abilities of the bigger 29er.
As you’d expect, grip is somewhere between the 29” and 26” wheel, as is stability and wheel strength.
Demand is growing and manufacturers are pumping their resources into make more options, and developing frames and forks appropriate for the wheel size, meaning that new 2016 650b bikes are usually the product of brand new development, which of course gives their riders the edge.
Riders wanting the absolute edge of the lightest bike available, but feel the need for more technical handling than a 29er can offer. Though cross country riders attacking less technical, but rough terrain, favour the 29” wheel for its pure speed, enduro and trail riders are moving towards the do-it-all attitude of 650b.
