We got the chance to directly compare the 27.5" and 27.5"+ bikes in SCOTT's range to see which is the fastest over an undulating singletrack course – something similar to the great trails that we all love to ride. Which bike would be faster? Would one tyre/wheel standard feel better than the other? Check out our findings and let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
