ANGLE OF ATTACK Larger wheels decrease your angle of attack by
allowing you to roll over obstacles easier and faster. Bigger wheel = smaller obstacle.
MOMENTUM A larger wheel enables one to carry momentum easier though
SURFACE CONTACT 29”wheels are less prone to sinking in soft material
such as sand and mud due to the larger contact patch causing lower ground pressure.
The longer contact patch increases cornering and straight line traction
STABILITY The relative position of the bottom bracket/cranks to
the axles in the wheels also means that your relative center of gravity is lower.
This results in a feeling of riding “in” the bike rather than on top of it.
TIRE CLEARANCE with more tire choices than any platform, the 29”wheel
easily accommodates off road as well as commuting tires.
TALLER RIDERS 29” bikes tend to offer taller riders a more “natural”
