Falcon Argon 2016 Mens 27.5″ Alloy Front Suspension Mountain Bike

The Brand New Falcon Argon 2016 27.5″ (650b) Mountain Bike has been updated for 2016 and now forms part of a stunning new range of 3 bikes that  cover the minefield of wheel sizes currently existing in the mountain bike world- its smaller wheeled cousin is the 26″ wheel Xenon and the bigger wheeled 29″ wheel Radon

Being part of a new three bike stable makes choosing your next mountain bike easy, they are all the same specification and all the same price, the only decision is now which size wheel do you want to ride? not can i justify the extra £50-£100? just for a bigger wheel size.

why 27.5″ wheels? the pros of the new bigger wheel size-

Right in the middle ground of the new wheel size battle, is the amiable 650b or 27.5″ – offering the best of both worlds. The 650b wheel has a touch of the light & nimble, fast acceleration of the 26”, along with the rough terrain cruising abilities of the bigger 29er.

As you’d expect, grip is somewhere between the 29” and 26” wheel, as is stability and wheel strength.

Demand is growing and manufacturers are pumping their resources into make more options, and developing frames and forks appropriate for the wheel size, meaning that new 2016 650b  bikes are usually the product of brand new development, which of course gives their riders the edge.

Great For:

Riders  wanting the absolute edge of the lightest bike available, but feel the need for more technical handling than a 29er can offer. Though cross country riders attacking less technical, but rough terrain, favour the 29” wheel for its pure speed, enduro and trail riders are moving towards the do-it-all attitude of 650b.

The Falcon Argon is equipped with Shimano E-Z-fire shifters to power the 24-speed shimano front and rear derailleurs  for rapid & reliable changing and are integrated into the alloy brake levers for a simple modular design, no expense has been spared and the Radon also has a Shimano Chainset upfront  guaranteeing smooth and reliable power transfer in all conditions. The Shimano alloy brake levers control the front and rear Zoom mechanical disc brakes, which brake onto a 160 mm stainless rotors for superior heat dispersion and performance longevity. The comfortable Falcon branded saddle is connected by a lightweight alloy micro-adjust  seat post to allow ample height adjustment.
Suitable for age 12-adult years or an inside leg measurement of 76cm – 87cm / 30-34″
