When you’re charging through technical, pounding DH terrain at top speeds, you need confidence and control to stay on your game. With 203mm of fully active Maestro Suspension featuring a co-pivot shock mount, the Glory 27.5 has been tested and proven by some of the top DH racers and gravity riders in the world. Its lightweight, super-strong frame is engineered with geometry that’s optimized for its 27.5 wheels, plus a super stiff OverDrive steerer tube for unwavering control and steering precision. The 63-degree headtube angle and longer wheelbase was developed and refined with riders from the Giant Factory Off-Road Team to excel on the steepest, most extreme DH tracks in the world.
Raw ALUXX SL tubesets are further refined through a complex series of processes that provides strength (extrusion), weight reduction (butting) and shape (forming).
Giant pioneered and perfected the use of radically shaped tubesets that provide all the strength and stability of gusseted tubes without added material and welds.
The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter-wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
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.
Maestro Suspension System
Utilizes four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient and independent system on the trail.
WORLD CUP DH 27.5-SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
Aggressive geometry, including a 63-degree headtube angle and a longer wheelbase, designed through collaboration with the Giant Factory Off-Road World Cup DH race team to excel in the toughest terrain.
소재 • 우수한 퍼포먼스 무게 대비 강성을 위해 6011 합금을 사용합니다. 성형 방식 • 더블 버팅 공정은 우수한 강성은 유지하면서 무게는 더욱 가볍게 합니다. • 알루미늄 튜브의 형태를 만들고 다듬기 위한 방식에는 프레스 폼(직접적인 기계 압력을 사용하는 방식), 웜 폼(고압의 공기를 주입하는 방식), 그리고 일부 모델들에 한해 적용하는 플루이드 폼이 있습니다. 용접 기술 • 최적화된 강성과 무게를 만들어내기 위해 전략적으로 스무드 용접방식(Smooth Weld)을 도입한 스탠다드 용접방식(Standard Weld)으로 접합하였습니다.
