The Stance 27.5 trail bike has been honored by Bicycling Magazine for its prestigious 2016 Editors’ Choice Awards.
The editors of Bicycling heralded the Stance 27.5 for breaking new ground, standing alone in its category of affordable full-suspension trail bikes.
“Even a few years ago, if you’d asked us what type of bike to get for $1,500, we’d have replied, ‘a hardtail.’ No more,” wrote Bicycling editors. “The full-suspension Stance 27.5 clambered up steep eastern slickrock, soaked up gnarled roots, and gripped confidently on loose off-camber corners”
The Bicycling Editors’ Choice Awards, given out annually, represent the highest honor for Bicycling, the world’s largest cycling magazine. This year the testing staff started with more than 100 nominations, and the Stance 27.5 was one of just 20 mountain bikes from all categories and price points to make the final cut and win an award.
Detailing their reasons for singling out the Stance 27.5, Bicycling editors wrote: “With modern features, like 27.5-inch wheels and a tapered head and steerer tube for additional front end stiffness, the Stance 27.5 2 is a capable trail bike that offers the fun of a quality full-suspension design at a price few companies can match.”
