Overview

THE MORE COMFORTABLE YOU ARE, THE MORE YOU’LL RIDE. THE MORE YOU RIDE, THE FASTER YOU GET. ENDURANCE AND SPEED, A WINNING COMBO.

At the heart of this aero-sculpted beauty is an Advanced-grade composite frame with endurance geometry for increased control and comfort. Performance features, like the PowerCore bottom bracket for optimal pedaling stiffness, are blended with a road-smoothing, longer wheelbase and taller headtube. It’s the best of both worlds.

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.
