Adult-Unisex Axis Sport Mountain Bike (27.5" Wheels) -  Grey/Blue
Adult-Unisex Axis Sport Mountain Bike (27.5" Wheels) - Grey/Blue
 
Ride the middle road with a 27.5"-wheel mountain bike, a happy compromise between the 29er that’s the favorite of the trendies and the 26" which has just as many loyalists.

Middle of the road doesn’t imply a downer when it applies to the Diamondback Adult-Unisex Axis Sport Mountain Bike (27.5" Wheels). It just may be the very best path with faster acceleration than the 29er and a better ability to roll through the rough and over obstacles than its 26" cousin. This is an excellent beginner bike to start down any trail or to get on the road to better fitness. Raleigh’s Axis series of mountain bikes offer great quality at great prices, giving you a perfect blend of hardtail performance and tough practicality – just the job when you’re ready to take a leap into mountain biking territory. This bike with its 27.5-inch wheels is anything but a compromise, combining the trail-crushing dominance of the 29er with the agility of the 26er. This wheel size has noteworthy benefits, no doubt contributing to its growing popularity. For instance, lower rolling resistance and better traction give you a smoother ride, not unlike that of the 29er, but with less geometry and suspension travel limitations or toe clearance concerns. The ride is smoother than that of a 26er but you get greater torsional stiffness and durability than that offered by a 29er. That adds up to a middle ground mountain bike that gives you a pretty sweet ride.
