The all-new Giant SXC 32 fork sets a new benchmark for sport-level suspension performance. With a chassis directly derived from the acclaimed Crest fork and featuring a forged crown and hollow bridge lowers, the SXC 32 offers a superior combination of robust strength, suspension performance and light weight.
Through precise in-house manufacturing processes like thixomolding and horizontal machining, the SXC’s uppers and lowers are perfectly circular and concentric and offer a virtually frictionless action. Additionally, the ultra-tight tolerances used in the machining of the SXC’s internals mean that they work together in close unison, providing a smooth, plush feel usually only found in much more expensive suspension forks.
For a mountain bike to ride well, the suspension fork can’t be too stiff or too flexy. Too stiff and it will bounce the rider around and cause fatigue. Too flexy and it will cause the rider to lose control easily, with potentially disastrous consequences. With Giant’s core stiffness chassis and trail-tuned engineering, we have the ability to precisely tailor the desired stiffness and strength for the fork depending on stanchion size, helping riders ride more comfortably and more in control.
Tuned with input from our experienced suspension testers, the SXC’s widely adjustable damper system can be constantly refined for increased control and to allow a wide range of riders to easily match their suspension with the terrain and their riding style.
