Giant’s innovative oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to offer unprecedented frontend steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front-end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented pedaling stiffness.
Every Giant 29er features big-wheel adjusted geometry to provide just the right blend of sharp handling with a forgiving and stable wheelbase.
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages create a single floating pivot point. This improves pedaling efficiency by counteracting the pedaling forces that produce suspension compression or pedal kickback.
The innovative co-pivot design saves considerable weight with the use of one axle to connect both the lower link and the lower shock mount to the front triangle.

|Weight||The 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.
