Key Performance Factors
Lightweight and responsive
A hand-crafted Advanced-grade composite frameset offers XC racers and riders a competitive advantage for climbing, accelerating and sprinting.
The frame is engineered with a high stiffness-to-weight-ratio, which translates to efficient pedaling power and precise handling on the trail.
Each frame is custom-tuned based on its size. Individual composite lay-up schedules are created to optimize vertical compliance to produce a smoother ride quality on XC terrain.
With a frameset that’s engineered using Advanced-Grade Composite, our highest-grade carbon, this superlight and agile 29er delivers speed and efficiency for XC riders and racers. Designed to ride with a 100mm suspension fork, it’s a race-bred climber with quick acceleration. The 29er-specific frame geometry offers an ideal balance of stability and maneuverability on all types of XC terrain. Boost hub spacing gives you added tire clearance and wheel stiffness, and a new Giant WheelSystem with tubeless tires delivers a smoother, more efficient ride plus a reduced risk of flats.
