Engineered with a superlight Advanced-grade carbon frame (including the front triangle and rear swingarm) this full-suspension 29er features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel and 100mm up front. The proven Maestro rear suspension system includes a trunnion mount shock with a lower leverage ratio for efficient pedalling and braking performance. The linkage allows for shorter chainstays which improves the bike’s climbing capabilities and overall agility. The Advanced Forged Carbon Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than the previous aluminium version. Other updates include wider Boost hub spacing and an integrated Giant WheelSystem that gives you super strong and stiff wheels for confident, precise handling on XC terrain.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
The Advanced Carbon Composite frameset (mainframe and rear swingarm) is superlight with aggressive 69-degree head tube and 73.5-degree seat tube angles for faster climbing and accelerating.
29er speed and stability
Frame geometry and suspension are optimised for 29-inch wheels to deliver a race-winning combo of speed and stability on XC terrain.
Traction and control
