IF XC IS YOUR GAME, AND SPEED IS YOUR OBSESSION, THIS 27.5-INCH SINGLETRACK MACHINE IS YOUR PATH TO THE PODIUM.

This elite-level XC race bike is the world’s first women’s-specific carbon fibre hardtail with the optimal new 27.5-inch wheel size. The frame is handcrafted with Advanced-grade composite frame material, and purposefully engineered to maximize the advantages of 27.5—light, agile and maneuverable, yet still super stable on technical trails. Its technologies include the OverDrive 2 steerer tube and 15mm front thru-axle for pinpoint steering precision. It has a PowerCore bottom bracket for better pedaling efficiency, plus clean internal cable routing and an integrated seat clamp, give you an edge on the competition and terrain.

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.
