Details

Want to lose yourself in the trees while riding singletrack? Liv's Tempt 1 is lightweight and offers the perfect blend of speed and control for all your trail adventures. It all starts with Liv's ALUXX aluminum frame that's tough, nimble, and responsive, just what you need for your outdoor excursions. Then you get a Fox Float Evolution CTD fork with 100mm of plush suspension that adjusts remotely and offers precise steering to guide you through the rough stuff. It's packed full of Shimano Deore components with 20 speeds for maneuvering through varying terrain, and Shimano disc brakes for great speed modulation. And, 27.5-inch Schwalbe knobbies grip with authority and roll over anything in your way.

27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.

27.5-Inch (650B) wheel/tire performance.

Efficiency: Increasing the wheel diameter decreases the angle of attack (the angle at which round objects meet square objects). The lower the angle, the easier it is to roll over obstacles and maintain momentum.

Traction: With a larger diameter, the tire's contact patch increases, putting more rubber on the trail. A 27.5-inch (650B) has nearly the same contact patch as a 29er for superb acceleration, braking and cornering.

Weight: The weight of a 27.5 wheel, tire and tube is only 5% more than an identically built 26-inch wheel. Compare this to a 12% increase with a 29-inch wheel. Lighter wheels mean a lighter bike, and better climbing and acceleration.
