CONSUMERS DIGEST SAYS TRINITY COMPOSITE 2 AND ESCAPE 2 ARE “BEST BUYS!”

June 25, 2012

The August 2012 issue of Consumers Digest picks the Trinity Composite 2 and Escape 2 bicycles as “Best Buys.”

The August 2012 issue of Consumers Digest highlights “Best Buys” in bicycles and two Giant bikes are featured. The Giant Trinity Composite 2 -- and Liv/giant Trinity Composite 2 W -- are ‘Best Buys’ because “…The Trinity Composite 2 is the only model that we found at this price that has a full carbon-fiber frame and has innovations that cut back on wind resistance better than other triathlon-specific road bikes do. For example, this model’s brakes are concealed cleverly within the frame to improve airflow, which you’ll find only on models that cost thousands more. We believe that this model also has the best combination of components on a triathlon bikes that costs less than $3000.”

In the same issue also the Giant Escape 2 and Liv/giant Escape 2 W are featured. “The inexpensive Escape 2 has better parts than what you would find on hybrid bikes that cost $100 more. The highlights include a high-quality aluminum frame (most others are steel in this price range), a 24-speed drivetrain (21 speeds are more common) and double-wall aluminum rims that we believe will hold up better over time than do the single-wall hoops that are typical among economy models.”
