Built around 27.5 wheels for XC quickness and agility, this XC race machine hammers up climbs and rails through rough corners. The Advanced-grade composite frame delivers absolute efficiency and a compliant ride to help soak up technical terrain. The Overdrive steerer tube and a 100mm suspension fork create flawless front end handling whether you’re climbing, sprinting or descending rough singletrack. The MegaDrive downtube and PowerCore bottom bracket help create a stiff chassis that makes the most of your pedaling power. And details including the integrated seatpost clam and internal cable routing give it a clean profile that looks great on the podium.
High-performance grade raw carbon fiber and custom resin is used to produce this high-quality frame in Giant’s own composite factory. Handcrafted construction makes it extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
Wider hub spacing results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
A lightweight, all-internal seatpost locking mechanism provides confident clamping force with clean performance and aesthetics.
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.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
