A DH machine that knows how to win. From the most wicked World Cup tracks to your local shuttle runs, this composite-framed descender gives you the confidence to fly.
Key Performance Factors
Legendary DH frame
Built in collaboration with Giant Factory Team mechanics and pro racers, this composite frame has been winning races and evolving for more than a decade. The latest iteration is long and low (63-degree head angle), stiff and lighter than ever.
27.5 agility and control
27.5-inch wheels balance agility and control, giving you the ability to roll over rugged terrain, flick the bike at speed, change lines, and explode out of corners.
Maestro rear suspension uses four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work together to create a single floating pivot point. The result is an active, efficient and independent suspension system to tame the most extreme DH terrain.
In the world of pro DH racing, marginal gains mean everything. This composite gravity machine has been developed and perfected over the years to give Giant factory pros every advantage in a sport decided by fractions of a second. The latest version of the Glory Advanced breaks new ground in stiffness, weight and all-around performance. It features 203mm of fully active Maestro rear suspension on a superlight, stiff and strong composite mainframe. The frame geometry, engineered to optimize its 27.5 wheels, has helped deliver Marcelo Gutierrez to World Cup podiums on the world’s toughest courses. It’s the lightest composite DH frame ever produced by Giant, and it’s always hungry to win.
Advanced Composite MainFrame
Giant's High Performance-grade raw carbon fiber is used to produce custom composite material in our own composite factory that is extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front-end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered rectangular downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
An oversized, fully integrated 86mm wide bottom bracket with a threaded design delivers optimal power transfer. And asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Designed to provide 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.
8 inches/203 mm of Maestro suspension
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages all work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient and independent suspension system on the trail.
World Cup proven geometry
Aggressive geometry, including a 63-degree headtube and a longer wheelbase, is optimized for 27.5 wheels and designed in collaboration with the Giant Factory Off-Road World Cup DH race team to excel in the toughest terrain.
