Foes Mixer: 29/27.5

Foes Mixer Enduro

Back in the day there was a short-lived design trend that placed a 29″ wheel up front and a 26″ wheel in the back. This design was commonly referred to as a “69er” and had its roots in motocross designs where this setup is common.

Foes has decided to revisit this concept with the Mixer, which has a 29er front and 27.5 rear. Foes claims that with the frame designed around this wheel combo from the ground up, climbing is more efficient with better traction, while descending is more confident.
