PRIMAL 27.5 2021


Choosing between 29” and 27.5” wheels is not an easy one, especially when you can pack 27.5” tires up to 2.6-inch width! Wider tires and wider rims opened a world of new possibilities for the hardtails. Better traction and riding comfort are crucial advantages of Primal 27.5 frames. Matching this with aggressive geometry with a slacker head tube angle and Boost standard dropouts make almost perfect trail machine. Primal 27.5 allows you to cope easily with singletracks, twisted flow trails as well as enjoy pumptracks and small dirts. Primal since the 2020 season has an extra butting added for the top tube to make it a bit lighter but with the same durability. Very special stickers pattern with different shapes of leaves makes this frame even more cool now, especially when shredding through the woods!

Primals - general info
Plus size wheels opened a world of new possibilities for the hardtails – wider tires improve the traction and riding comfort. Popularity of the 27.5” semiplus size tires renewed also the popularity of the 29-er hardtails which are the best choice for those who want to enjoy long rides in the mountains. The new series of our Primal frames and bikes are designed either for 27.5” wheels with a wide range of tire width - from 2.3” to 2.6” or for 29” wheels with tires wide up to 2.4”. Both new frames - Primal 27.5” and Primal 29” boast new more aggressive geometry with a slacker head tube angle and with Boost standard dropouts.
