For pure XC speed and efficiency, this composite hardtail 29er delivers a responsive ride quality to crank out more miles on fast, flowy singletrack. Use it for a marathon XC race, or switch it up to 27.5+ for more aggressive terrain.

With its large-diameter 29-inch wheels, and an option to switch to 27.5+, this lightweight, Advanced-grade composite hardtail lets you choose one bike for multiple riding styles. In its 29er form, it’s ready for smooth, fast singletrack or XC racing. For rougher, more adventurous rides, you might choose the added cushion and control of 27.5+ wheels*. It features wider Boost hub spacing to improve wheel stiffness and add tyre clearance, plus a host of other features that let you dial in its performance for nearly any type of terrain. Bonus: you can even transform it into a singlespeed. * Fork compatibility may vary. Please check with your local Giant authorised dealer.

WeightThe most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
