Overview

THE QUICK, SHARP FEEL OF A SUPERLIGHT COMPOSITE HARDTAIL, THE CONTROL OF 29-INCH WHEELS. XC RACERS CAN HAVE IT ALL.

Giant’s first-ever composite 29er was developed to meet the demands of our professional racers. They asked for the stability and control of a 29er, but with razor-sharp handling. Made with Giant Composite Technology, the frame’s massive MegaDrive downtube and OverDrive headtube give it quick, precise steering. Asymmetrical chainstays and a PowerCore bottom bracket boost traction and acceleration. Find new confidence, and speed, with XtC Composite 29er.

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.
