What I noticed during my time riding these things was that the 29+ tires generally had a lower height to width (is that what we call aspect ratio?) than the 27.5+ tires did. I don't know if this was because 29+ tire designers were trying to keep sidewalls as low as possible (packaging concerns, after all), or if 27.5+ tire designers were trying to get sizes as close to regular 29 tires as possible. But what it felt like to me was that 29+ tires rarely felt as squirmy in the turns as similar weight/construction/pattern 27.5+ tires. And squirmy in the turns was where almost all of my dissatisfaction with 27.5+ rested...
