Frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight framesets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.
40mm of front travel expands this bike’s capabilities, improving control and reducing fatigue while riding rough roads, gravel and dirt.
Flip Chip Dropout
Geometry, wheelbase and rear tire clearance can be adjusted using two-position hardware in the rear dropouts. A longer wheelbase adds stability and increases tire clearance (up to 53mm), while a shorter wheelbase delivers a quicker, more agile ride.
A downward sloping top tube (from the head tube to the seat tube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
Proprietary D-shaped handlebar works to dampen vibrations and absorb road shock, resulting in a smooth, compliant ride quality.
New frame design allows you to use the stock dropper seatpost, a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost, or a traditional round 30.9mm seatpost. This lets riders choose the right seatpost for their riding style and terrain.
Giant Tubeless System
Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for disc brakes, producing reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
Designed for precise steering performance, this system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work together to provide optimal steering stiffness and control.
A massive rectangular down tube and oversized top tube provide superior lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped down tube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a threaded, BSA 68 bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
