Giant’s innovative oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to offer unprecedented frontend steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front-end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented pedaling stiffness.
To minimize weight, Giant engineers use FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to develop a strategic layup schedule of Uni-Directional and woven composite. This ensures the precise amount of composite material where a frame requires it and minimizes excess material where the structure doesn’t.
Every Giant 29er features big-wheel adjusted geometry to provide just the right blend of sharp handling with a forgiving and stable wheelbase.
Internal Seatpost Clamp
Lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides clean, confident clamping force just where you need it—all while remaining out-of-sight.
SL 29er 0
SLEEK, SMOOTH AND ITCHING TO PIN IT. FOR BLAZING FAST XC COURSES, THIS IS THE CHOICE OF GIANT WORLD CUP RACERS.

|Weight||How much does this bike weigh? It’s a common question, and rightly so. But the truth is, there are no industry standards for claiming bike weights—and this leads to a lot of misinformation. Variances exist based on size, frame material, finish and hardware. And as bikes get lighter, these differences become more critical. At Giant, we believe the only way to truly know the weight of any particular bike is to find out for yourself at your local retailer.|
