State-of-the-art aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also feature unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.
Maestro Suspension Technology
Uses four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system.
Advanced Forged Composite
A state-of-the-art, high-pressure molding process is used to produce a complex shaped carbon-fiber upper rocker arm that is lighter, stiffer and stronger than an aluminum version.
On Board Storage
The frameset also has new trail-riding functionality including an on-frame tool storage interface on the bottom side of the top tube.
Adjustable Frame Geometry
Flip chip adjustability lets you switch between two settings depending on the terrain you are riding. You can choose the low position for fast, aggressive terrain, or high for a more XC-oriented rider position.
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.
Integrated Cable Ports
New design for internal cable routing offers a clean look and performance fr derailleur, brake and dropper post cables and housing.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Integrated Frame Protection
Drive-side chainstay and downtube feature built-in protection against rocks and debris.
Wider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
Giant Tubeless System
Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
