Power-assisted terrain bicycles, also known as mountain bikes, are designed to move on uneven terrain such as forest roads, mountain roads, etc. The recognizable features of a mountain bike Looks like horizontal ribs, with shock absorbers, wheels with large spikes to increase grip.
However, on the market there are many different types of off-road vehicles divided according to the purpose of use or the terrain that car players often use. In this article, I would like to share information about the common sizes of mountain bike wheels so that players can choose for themselves a suitable wheel size.
Currently, there are 3 popular wheel sizes: 26 inches, 27.5 inches and 29 inches. This size is the diameter of the wheel. With the condition of Vietnamese people, we should use the smallest cake size of 26 inches.
26-inch wheels: Because of their small diameter, 26-inch wheels are durable and often popular. This size was first introduced by American bicycle manufacturers. The size is determined by the diameter of the rims, if you measure the tires as well, the 26 inch wheel diameter has an exact size of about 26.2 inches. Wheels of this size have the advantage of being flexible, suitable for many different conditions of car players, but have less grip than larger sized wheels due to less contact surface.
Wheel size 29 inches: This size wheel size is also determined as a 26 inch wheel. This size is commonly used in professional racing and mountain bikes. In professional races, the terrain is rough and complicated, the size 29 wheel is preferred because of its good grip, high speed, but in return, this wheel has a weaker bearing capacity than the other wheels. The wheels are smaller in size and the flexibility is definitely not as good as the small wheels. Despite its disadvantages, this wheel size is the preferred choice of XC and Enduro racers.
Cake size 27.5 inches: The size of this cake is a combination of a 26-inch cake and a 29-inch cake. It improves flexibility for 29-inch wheels and also increases grip for 26-inch wheels. However, users of this type of wheel are not popular, so it is quite difficult to find ribs and components to assemble a mountain bike according to this wheel size.
