Overview

MAKE FRIENDS WITH GRAVITY. IF YOU LIVE FOR DOWNHILLS BUT GO JUST AS HARD ON CLIMBS, THIS NEW TRAIL BIKE IS FOR YOU.

With an Advanced-grade composite frame engineered specifically for 27.5-inch wheels-the ideal wheel size for all-around trail shredding-plus a longer travel fork (up to 160mm), this is a trail bike that’s built for speed. The rock-eating Maestro suspension system, plus a sturdier shock, brakes and components, give it a smooth, confident feel even at eye-watering speeds. The OverDrive 2 steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket produce pinpoint steering and pedaling stiffness. Frame details include internal cable routing, integrated downtube protection and ISCG-05 chain guide compatibility.

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.
