High-performance grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
Advanced Composite Frame
Optimized Tube Shaping
Every tube shape in the Advanced-grade composite frame is engineered to minimize weight, maintain stiffness and improve overall ride quality.
Advanced Composite Fork
Complete composite construction and a minimalist design reduces weight while increasing stiffness. The redesigned OverDrive 2 steerer tube positions the lower bearing higher in the headtube, resulting in an improved transfer of force to the frame for sharp steering and cornering capabilities plus a smooth overall ride quality.
The frame and fork are engineered specifically for flat-mount disc brakes, including front and rear 12mm thru-axles for the most reliable braking and handling in all types of weather and road conditions.
A massive rectangular-shaped downtube links together the OverDrive front end and PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered tube shape yields optimal steering and pedaling stiffness while minimizing overall frame weight.
The 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.
This proprietary seatpost design offers the perfect balance of light weight, superior ride quality, and easy saddle installation and adjustment.
Internal Seatpost Clamp
A hidden seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean aesthetics and reliable performance.
Internal Cable Routing
New internal cable routing with larger ports and a tool-free bottom bracket guide, designed for easy cable installation without any added weight.
The most advanced steerer tube technology in today’s Giant bikes. Designed to offer unprecedented front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower, 1 1/4” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in harmony to provide supreme steering stiffness.
