27.5+ creates a middle ground between two existing standards: Fat Bikes and traditional Mountain Bikes. Notably, Fat Bikes have the 26 x 3.8 – 5.0 inches tyres, while traditional MTBs have tyres ranging from 2 to 2.5 in wide. Riders have come to love the additional traction and float offered by Fat Bikes. However, they still like the nimbler handling and speed offered by more traditional Mountain Bikes. So, taking the best bits from both and creating a bike to offer the benefits, with little compromise seemed the perfect solution.
There are three models in our Vice range. The Reid Vice 2.0 is the second in the range with a striking matte blue finish. The Reid Vice 2.0 is designed to be comparable to the Ares on spec, but aims at a rider looking for a quality mid-level 27+ offering.
