Show Highlights

OverDrive

Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.

Maestro Suspension System

Utilises four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient and independent system on the trail.

Gussett Free Design

Giant pioneered and perfected the use of radically shaped tubesets that provide all the strength and stability of gusseted tubes without added material and welds.

World Cup DH Race Geometry

Aggressive 63.5/61.8 degree headtube/seattube angles designed through collaboration with World Cup pro racers Danny Hart and Andrew Neethling.

FluidForm

Raw ALUXX SL tubesets are further refined through a complex series of processes that provides strength (extrusion), weight reduction (butting) and shape (forming). The FluidForm process also improves stiffness and eliminates the need for added gussets.

With 8 inches of fully active Maestro Suspension mated to a lightweight, super-strong ALUXX SL frame with a co-pivot shock mount, Glory is the only bike in the world that can keep up with 2011 DH World Champion Danny Hart. With geometry that’s tested and race-proven by Hart and his Giant Factory teammates, plus the stout OverDrive steerer tube design, which provides supreme front-end stiffness and control in the rough stuff, it’s the ultimate confidence boost for the most aggressive DH terrain in the world.

WeightThe most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
