Featuring an updated platform with 110mm of rear suspension travel and 130mm up front, this light and lively off-road machine is ultra-versatile. With geometry designed specifically for its 27.5 wheels and smooth Maestro suspension to soak up the bumps, it’s the perfect blend of efficiency and control. The rear suspension features a trunnion-mount shock and Advanced Forged composite rocker arm for added strength and stiffness. And Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear) means stiffer wheels for added control. It’s a perfect choice for riders seeking a lightweight, quick-handling ripper.
High-performance grade raw carbon fiber and custom resin is used to produce this high-quality frame in Giant's own composite factory. Handcrafted monocoque construction makes it extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
Updated “long and low” XC frame geometry is tailored for 27.5-inch wheels to optimize control, acceleration and stability.
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.
ADVANCED FORGED COMPOSITE UPPER ROCKER ARM
A state-of-the-art, high-pressure molding process is used to produce complex shaped carbon-fiber components that are lighter, stiffer and stronger than similar aluminum components.
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.
New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedaling and braking efficiency, plus a lower center of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility.
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.
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.
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, Giant’s TRX Composite WheelSystem delivers superior efficiency, pinpoint control and engineered durability.
