Bigger wheels equals easier to go over bumps and faster on the roads. Great bicycle to keep up with parents on the roads as well.

TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
The RST Gila suspension fork delivers 80mm of coil-sprung suspension travel with an MCU elastomer bumper that smoothes fork bottom-out. With a lightweight alloy crown and lowers and stout 28.6mm steel stanchions for stiffness, strength and a straight-tracking front wheel, this fork will deliver ride after ride.
The Shimano 24-speed drivetrain features a TX800 rear derailleur, EZ-Fire Plus shifters and a SR XCC 42/34/24T crankset for go-anywhere capability.
The cassette rear freehub and hub bearings are further outboard on the axle than on a standard rear hub threaded to accept a freewheel, provides greater bearing support to the axle for increased strength and durability.
Sealed cartridge bottom brackets reduce maintenance time and expense.
Disc brakes stop great in all conditions & increase wheel longevity by eliminating the rim sidewall from the brake system.
