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 Fuji Nevada, thanks to its continued popularity, has become a staple in the Fuji mountain bike lineup. The Nevada is designed with Fuji's A2-SL custom aluminum and PowerCurve down tube. The PowerCurve adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling, while S-bend chain stays further reduce frame vibration, which can decrease pedaling performance and increase muscle fatigue. The SR Suntour 27.5" fork has a hydraulic lockout for climbing or increasing pedaling efficiency and 100m of travel. The frame and fork are equipped with powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and a set of massive 180/160mm rotors.
The Nevada 1.5 27.5" mountain bike has a dependable 3x9 Shimano Altus/Alivio drivetrain with an Alivio rear derailleur. Altus Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11/34 Shimano cassette. 27 speeds means there's a gear for nearly every grade or condition. Finding the perfect gear means you'll stay moving forward and in control.
Stout Vera Terra DPD 16 27.5" wheels and Vera Eos tires offer predictable traction on the road or trail. Finally, a flat cross country handlebar with a gentle 9 degree sweep keep your body forward for improved frontend control.
