XC racing has changed. Today’s racetracks feature steeper climbs, more technical descents, and higher intensity start to finish. The all-new XtC Advanced SL 29 and XtC Advanced 29 blend uncompromising speed with smooth, balanced control—everything you need to move up through the pack and aim for the podium.

Both framesets weigh less than 1000g, with the XtC Advanced SL 29 tipping the scales at 920g and the XtC Advanced 29 weighing 995g. This weight savings combined with greater torsional stiffness creates the best stiffness-to-weight ratios Giant has ever produced in hardtail mountain bikes.
