MAESTRO MOVES MOUNTAINS

Whatever off-road adventures you seek, Giant's Maestro Suspension helps you make the most of your efforts. Control, traction, comfort, speed—you get more of everything with Maestro. From fast and efficient 4-inch-travel XC to full 8-inch DH bikes, Maestro is an adaptable system that offers smooth, active rear suspension on all types of terrain.

Three core benefits set Maestro Suspension Technology apart from the rest:

PEDALING EFFICIENCY:

Whether you’re sprinting up a climb or coasting through a rock garden, Maestro Suspension performs consistently under pedaling power and doesn’t compromise efficiency.

COMPLETE SUSPENSION ACTIVITY:

From high-frequency trail vibrations to heavy-hitting compressions, Maestro Suspension soaks up the full spectrum of trail impacts.

TOTAL BRAKE INDEPENDENCE:

Even under full braking force, Maestro Suspension remains fully active and reactive.

1CONTACT EQUALS CONTROL

Features: Maestro’s linear spring curve allows the rear suspension to feel incredibly sensitive to small bump forces. The floating pivot point keeps the suspension completely active while braking and the rear tire in contact with the ground.

Benefit: TBetter tire contact with the ground improves your control. And the more sensitive your suspension is, the better your acceleration, braking and cornering traction.

2FOUR, TWO, ONE

Features: Maestro utilizes four strategically positioned pivot points (identified as the four red dots) and two linkages that all work to create a single floating pivot point (identified as the red circle).

Benefit: This single floating pivot point improves pedaling efficiency by counteracting pedaling forces that would otherwise create suspension compression (squatting) or pedal kickback (bobbing). Both seriously hinder performance by sapping energy from you and your bike.

3LIGHT AND STRONG

Features: Maestro-equipped frames feature lightweight co-pivot designs to shed hundreds of grams of unnecessary weight without sacrificing stiffness or strength.

Benefit: Lighter is faster—up or down the trail.
