Overview

CHOOSE YOU OWN PATH, AND RIDE IT WITH EASE AND CONFIDENCE. THIS RELAXED DROP-BAR BIKE IS GREAT FOR ROADS, GRAVEL OR DIRT.

Invite is in a category of its own: It blends the increased stability, traction and relaxed riding position of an off-road bike with the smooth efficiency of a drop-handlebar road bike. Its lightweight aluminum frame offers plenty of stand-over height thanks to its women’s-specific geometry. Ergo-shaped bars make it easy to control, and Invite also features specially designed brake levers with multiple reach options for secure riding.

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.
