While mountain bikes come in all shapes in sizes today, there's something about the simplicity and grandeur of the hardtail mountain bike. 27.5" mountain bikes are said to be the perfect size for mid-height riders and for good reason. With an improved angle of attack, a 27.5" wheel will roll over faster and easier than a 26-inch wheel. The larger the wheel, the smaller the obstacle relative to the wheel. Sounds easy enough and when you encounter a log or a rock, you quickly learn that this is true. Also, the 27.5" wheel offers improved agility. It's easy to get off the ground and get some air, and it's easier to maneuver through winding and tight singletrack lined with precarious branches. Plus, the 27.5" wheel size yields a lower center of gravity for more stability byway of the relative position of the bottom bracket to the wheel axle. Your body will feel more comfortable and centered as a result. The Storm is designed with D'Fusion hydroformed aluminum frame tubes, which add vital support against trail impact and improves handling. The SR Suntour 27.5" fork has 100mm of travel to handle bumps and roots along the way. The frame and fork are equipped with dependable Tektro mechanical disc brakes and a set of massive 160mm rotors.
The Storm has a high-quality 3x7 Shimano drivetrain with an Altus 7-speed rear derailleur. Shimano EZ Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the forgiving 14/34 Shimano cassette. 21 speeds means there's a gear for nearly every grade. Finding the perfect gear means you'll stay moving forward and in control.
Stout Vera Terra 27.5" wheels and Vera Eos 2.2" width tires offer dependable traction on fire roads or city streets. Finally, a 15mm rise cross country handlebar with a gentle 9 degree sweep keep your body forward for improved frontend control.
