$2,600

Small but mighty, this highly capable trail bike is for little rippers with big ambitions. Its lightweight alloy frame, high-performance wheels, and youth-tuned suspension balance efficient climbing, loads of traction, and confident handling to help young trail riders take it to the next level.

Key Performance Factors

YOUTH-TUNED SUSPENSION

FlexPoint rear suspension with a Giant Crest FloTrac Lite shock delivers 135mm of smooth travel tuned specifically for lighter weight riders. Up front, the 140mm Giant Crest SL FloTune Lite fork handles rocks, roots and ruts. Front and rear suspension both have minimal activation force, giving young riders smooth control and confidence on technical trails.

AGILE AND EFFICIENT

An ALUXX SL aluminum frameset with youth-specific trail geometry is combined with quality lightweight components to minimize weight and help young riders tackle challenging terrain. A new Giant TRA WheelSystem (27.5-inch front/26-inch rear) borrows key technologies from the proven adult TRA WheelSystem for improved climbing capabilities and quicker acceleration.

OFF-ROAD CONTROL

TRA WheelSystem with WideGuard technology results in lighter, stronger rims so riders can run lower tire pressures for better traction without the risk of tire punctures or rim damage. The mixed wheel setup combines the agile handling of the 26-inch rear wheel with the improved rollover capabilities of the 27.5-inch front, while a dropper seatpost makes it easy to optimize riding position while climbing or descending.

Highlights

This all-new trail bike features a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame with FlexPoint rear suspension and a Giant Crest FloTrac Lite shock that delivers 135mm of fully active travel to help kids level up their trail-riding capabilities. Up front, the new Giant Crest SL FloTune Lite fork handles rocks, roots and ruts with smooth efficiency. A youth-specific Giant TRA WheelSystem (27.5-inch front and 26-inch rear) balances agility and stable handling, helping kids make the leap from neighborhood rides and pump tracks to more challenging singletrack terrain. A dropper seatpost, shorter cranks and cockpit controls designed for small hands all add up to greater control and confidence.

  • Weight
    The 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 our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
