Engineered with a full composite frame, this 29er has 100mm of rear suspension travel. The linkage-driven, single-pivot FlexPoint Pro rear suspension makes room for shorter chainstays to improve climbing capabilities and overall agility. Other updates include new 29er-specific XC race geometry with a longer reach and a slacker headtube angle plus a new design for internal cable routing.
High-performance grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory. The mainframe and rear swingarm are handcrafted with monocoque construction for optimized stiffness-to-weight and an ultra-responsive ride quality.
FLEXPOINT PRO SUSPENSION
Developed as superlight rear suspension for XC bikes that demand efficiency, control and responsive handling, this linkage-driven, single-pivot system delivers 100mm of rear-wheel travel. It's engineered with a full-composite swingarm to minimize frame weight.
XC RACE GEOMETRY
The superlight composite frame is optimized for efficiency and control with an updated 67.5-degree head tube angle, longer reach, and a 110mm suspension fork for fast, technical XC performance.
Giant's proven oversized fork steerer tube technology. 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.
ADVANCED FORGED COMPOSITE
A state-of-the-art high-pressure molding process is used to produce the composite rocker arm, making it lighter, stiffer and stronger than aluminum.
A massively oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92mm bottom bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
INTEGRATED CABLE PORTS
New design for internal cable routing offers a clean look and performance for derailleur, brake, and dropper post cables and housing.
