Overview

STEEP PITCHES, DROPS, TECHNICAL TERRAIN. SUPREME CONFIDENCE ON THE DESCENTS, SURPRISING AGILITY ON THE CLIMBS.

All new and designed to maximize the benefits of 27.5-inch wheels, Trance SX 27.5 is a gravity-minded trail bike that’s light enough to hammer climbs and smooth enough to crush any descent. The lightweight yet stiff and super-strong ALUXX SL aluminum frame is mated with a longer travel fork (up to 160mm) and 5 inches of proven Maestro Suspension designed. The frame also features Giant’s OverDrive 2 steerer tube technology for razor sharp handling. And gravity-ready components make this an enduro-ready machine that won’t weigh you down on the climbs.

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.
