The mountain is calling, but you still lack the right e-MTB to hearken to its cry? Then you've come to the right place! You can easily and directly buy the right e-mountain bike for your needs in our shop. Or, if you have any questions, we can help you. You might be wondering which size is right for you: a 27.5" (650B) or a 29"?
Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself. But we can offer you some arguments in favour of each size that may help you in your decision. Whether 27.5" (650B) or 29" is ideal for you depends on various individual and personal factors. For example, what kind of rider are you? On what kind of terrain or in what riding situations do you feel most confident and comfortable?
Below, we have listed a number of aspects and special features for both the 27.5" (650B) and 29" E-MTBs to help you decide. But we think the best tip we can give is to test it! But no matter, both sizes deliver tremendous riding pleasure on- and off-road!
