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.

|Weight||The 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.|
