The Rangefinder Deore 12 27.5+ is here to help you find your new favorite trail, with a features list that makes it one of the best 27.5 hardtail trail bike options for the money. Our stable trail geometry puts you in a comfortable, confident position to take on new terrain and experiences. A 120 mm suspension fork and dropper post keep you in control. Nimble 27.5” wheels accelerate quickly, while the 2.8”-wide tires deliver awesome grip.
