When you’re charging through rocks, roots and ruts at top speeds, you need to stay on your game. With 203mm of fully active Maestro Suspension and a lightweight, super-strong ALUXX SL frame featuring a co-pivot shock mount, the Glory 27.5 has been tested and proven by some of the top DH racers and gravity riders in the world.. The frame is engineered with geometry that’s optimized for its 27.5 wheels, plus a super stiff OverDrive steerer tube for unwavering control and steering precision. Glory helps you boost your confidence and increase your speed on fast, technical DH terrain.
Raw ALUXX SL tubesets are further refined through a complex series of processes that provides strength (extrusion), weight reduction (butting) and shape (forming).
Giant pioneered and perfected the use of radically shaped tubesets that provide all the strength and stability of gusseted tubes without added material and welds.
The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Maestro Suspension System
Utilizes four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient and independent system on the trail.
WORLD CUP DH 27.5-SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
Aggressive geometry, including a 63-degree headtube angle and a longer wheelbase, designed through collaboration with the Giant Factory Off-Road World Cup DH race team to excel in the toughest terrain.
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 XC bikes to long-travel downhill machines, Maestro is an adaptable full-suspension platform that offers smooth, active rear suspension for any type of trail and all kinds of terrain.
