Schwalbe Racing Ralph 29x2.25", Folding Performance Folding
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.
This all-new, high-performance hardtail gives you the speed and stability of a 29er with the unique option of being able to convert it to 27.5+ for more adventurous terrain. You can even transform it into a singlespeed.
High-performance grade raw carbon fiber and custom resin is used to produce this high-quality frame in Giant’s own composite factory. Handcrafted construction makes it extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
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.
INTERNAL SEATPOST CLAMP
A lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean performance and aesthetics.
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, 92-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, Giant’s all-new XCR Composite WheelSystem delivers superior efficiency, pinpoint control and engineered durability.
