Ride roads, gravel or dirt with this all-new aluminium all-rounder. A composite fork gives it a smooth ride, and a flip chip lets you adjust wheelbase and tire clearance.
Frame is designed with endurance positioning and shorter chainstays for precise handling, agility and control. A longer reach, shorter stem and lower bottom bracket drop improves stability on rugged terrain.
New frame features thinner, dropped seatstays to absorb road shocks and vibrations. D-Fuse handlebar and seatpost work as a system to add compliance without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting or climbing.
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase short for quicker handling and acceleration, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting allows for larger diameter tyres up to 53mm. You can choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance, or switch to a 30.9mm round or dropper post.
This High-Performance level, state-of-the-art aluminium material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also feature unique welding technologies for high-performance ride quality.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
The proprietary “D” shaped composite seatpost damps vibration, resulting in a smooth, compliant ride.
Allows riders to quickly adjust the geometry and rear-wheel tire clearance with eccentric, offset two-position hardware in the rear wheel dropouts.
