MASTER TECHNICAL XC TERRAIN WITH SPEED, EFFICIENCY AND CONTROL. THIS 29ER WITH UPDATED MAESTRO SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY IS PERFECT FOR XC RACING, MARATHONS OR EPIC DAYS ON THE TRAIL.
Built on an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this 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 geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on climbs and descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces a smooth, supple feel with improved pedaling efficiency. An Advanced Forged Carbon Composite upper rocker arm is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminium version. And Boost wider hub spacing improves wheel stiffness for better control in rugged XC terrain.

|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 Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.|
