Overview

THE NO-NONSENSE EFFICIENCY OF A HARDTAIL. THE CONFIDENCE OF A 29ER. FEEL THE FLOW ON ANY XC TRAIL.

XtC 29er combines the best of both worlds. With its highly engineered ALUXX SL aluminum tubing and performance XC geometry, optimized for 29-inch wheels, it delivers stability and surprisingly agile trail manners. Giant’s OverDrive steerer tube technology, tapered and oversized for front-end stiffness and steering precision, is mated with a 100-millimeter suspension fork for incredible control. Add the PowerCore bottom bracket for stiff pedaling efficiency, and it’s a fast way to elevate your trail-riding skills.

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.
