Overview

LAUNCHING IT IS GOOD, LANDING IT IS EVEN BETTER. WHEN IT COMES TO FREERIDE, CONFIDENCE IS KEY. GIVE IT A BOOST WITH FAITH.

For Giant pro freerider Kurt Sorge, there’s no room for second-guessing. That’s why Kurt rides Faith, meticulously engineered to help him wow the crowds with aggressive style. The lightweight, unyielding FluidForm ALUXX SL aluminum frame features the beefy new OverDrive 2 oversize headtube and 7 inches of plush Maestro Suspension travel. And a convertible dropout system enables you to dial in the geometry for the terrain you ride.

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.
