2017 Trance A “Superb All Round Trail Bike”!
Singletrack tester Wil Barrett got his hands on the 2017 Trance 1 for a 3 month test, giving it a 3 month thrashing through the Winter and Spring. After plenty of ups and downs (quite literally), he concluded that the Trance is a “superb all round trail bike”.
Starting on a great note, Wil commented that “this bike could well be the smoothest feeling full suspension bike I’ve ridden”, referring to the combination of the custom tuned Fox Float DPS shock, trunnion mount and updated Maestro linkage which delivered “buttery, buttery plushness”.
Focusing on the wheels, Wil reserved praise for the Giant TRX 1 27.5 wheelsystem specced on the Trance 1; “Thanks to the crisp acceleration from those lightweight carbon wheels, the Trance picks up speed really well, and seems to hold it even better”.
Overall, the review was summed up with “it’s the real-world ride experience that reveals the Trance’s true ability” which we definitely agree with – test ride your 2017 Giant Trance now.
