Product Details


ALUXX SL Aluminum ConstructionExtremely lightweight framesets featuring high-performance strength-to-weight ratios, predominantly featuring 6011 alloy. A heritage of craftsmanship combined with unmatched manufacturing capabilities gives Giant the unique ability to monitor every step of the aluminum frame-building process. Through Giant's cutting-edge materials science, proprietary forming techniques, and attention to detail, we are constantly advancing aluminum performance to create bikes that are lighter, stronger and stiffer. The difference can be felt in the ride. Every aluminum bike bearing the ALUXX Aluminum Technology label must live up to the highest standards and meet the tightest tolerances of any aluminum frame in the world.

OverDriveGiant’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.

Maestro® Suspension | 140mmWhatever off-road adventures you seek, Giant's Maestro Suspension helps you make the most of your efforts. Control, traction, comfort, speed -- you get more of everything with Maestro. From fast and efficient XC bikes to long-travel downhill setups, Maestro is an adaptable full-suspension platform that offers smooth, active rear suspension for any type of trail and all kinds of terrain.

Trunnion MountThe latest Giant off-road models feature updated Maestro Suspension systems with a new Trunnion Mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm. The Trunnion Mount allows for a longer shock shaft, which produces a lower leverage ratio and smoother ride performance. It also allows for shorter chainstays to improve quickness and agility on the trail.

RockShox Deluxe Select ShockDeluxe Select delivers a lightweight package with the same proven damping performance of the entire Deluxe family. With a DebonAir spring, riders will feel coil-like consistent feel throughout the travel.
