  • There's a new trend going in the Carbon mountain bike rims world, mountain bikes with larger 29" wheels instead of the standard 26" wheels. A lot of big brands are coming out with more and more 29" model in their range. But what differences do they offer to 26" MTBs?
    Traction
    A 29" MTB tyre ends up having a longer contact patch with the ground due to its larger radius. This means more rubber and knobs gripping the ground. In situations where grip is an issue these wheels offer a big advantage. On the flip side, a tyre with less tread can be used to get the same grip as a 26er, and get less rolling resistance.
