Handcrafted with Giant's Advanced-grade composite, and purposefully engineered for the fast, stable 27.5-inch wheel platform, the XtC Advanced 27.5 is the perfect balance of speed and control.
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.
A massively oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86mm-wide BB design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
XC frame geometry tailored for 27.5-inch wheel size hardtail to optimize acceleration, control and stability.
Frame features unique internal cable porting for sleek, uncluttered appearance and performance.
Lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides clean, confident clamping force where it is needed most.
142/135mm convertible rear dropouts let riders choose which format works best for their needs.
