The website MTB-Mag.com has been testing the new Reign Advanced for the past few months and published its long-term review this week. Their report offers a comprehensive review of the latest frame design, technologies and components on the composite enduro machine, along with their thoughts on how it performs on the trail.
“The 2018 Giant Reign Advanced is a bike meant for raw race tracks and rowdy terrain,” wrote tester Simon Silver. “Bigger jumps, steeper trails, and maximum stability are the strong points of this bike, and we’ve enjoyed using them to let off the brakes and tackle things with more confidence than in the past.”
Looking at some of the updates to this year’s model, MTB-Mag.com pointed out a few highlights, including updated geometry, its Maestro Suspension platform (much to our liking, they wrote), and the new Giant Contact S Dropper seatpost.
Summing it up, they wrote: “With a great price point for the very well spec’d Reign Advanced 1 model, we’d recommend this bike to anyone looking to only one bike that they like to rip nastier trails on, shred in a bike park, or begin to dabble enduro racing with.”
