Behind the performance of Giant off-road WheelSystems are a number of innovative technologies that, together, deliver superior efficiency, pinpoint control and engineered durability. Here’s a look at the technologies you’ll find in new high-performance off-road WheelSystems such as the TRX 0.
More leverage on the “pulling” spokes and less on the “pushing” spokes creates slightly different spoke tension levels when the wheel is static. As pedaling force is applied, the tension balances, improving stiffness and efficiency.
Hub flanges are engineered and placed for optimal spoke bracing angles. This helps boost lateral wheel stiffness.
Proprietary shell and precision-engineered hub internals offer dependable performance in demanding off-road conditions. All hub parts are readily available and serviceable by your local retailer.
Tubeless Compatible rims allow for lower air pressure so the tire can conform better to the trail. This improves traction, lowers rolling resistance and reduces the risk of pinch flats.
Giant rims are produced in-house using our industry-leading manufacturing expertise with carbon and high-strength alloys. This allows us to achieve better strength, stiffness and durability at lower overall weights.
Wider hub diameters (110mm front and 148mm rear) produce stiffer hubs and improved overall trail handling with the latest Boost compatible framesets. Wider spacing also improves the chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
Wider 33mm rims offer improved traction and control by optimizing tire profile and performance for off-road terrain.
