With an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this smooth-riding 29er delivers speed, balance and control on fast, technical XC terrain. It’s optimized for larger diameter wheels with an updated Maestro suspension system that’s configured for a tighter rear triangle. The new geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on climbs and descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces a smooth, supple feel with improved pedalling efficiency. A new Advanced Forged Carbon Composite upper rocker arm is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminium version. A lightweight integrated Giant Wheel System with Boost technology comes with tubeless tyres already set up, making it easy to experience added efficiency and control on technical terrain.
