Product Details

Frame/Shock

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.

Advanced Forged Composite Upper Rocker ArmA state-of-the-art high-pressure molding process is used to produce complex-shaped carbon fiber components that are lighter, stiffer, and stronger than similar components made from aluminum. This technology is used in critical performance parts such as Maestro Suspension rocker links.

140 mm Maestro® SuspensionWhatever 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.

Fox Float DPS PerformancePerformance Series FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

OverDriveOverDrive provides up to 15 percent more torsional steering stiffness than straight steerer-tube designs. This translates into much more accurate steering input from a rider's hands, through the handlebar and stem, and down to the front wheel. Whether hammering uphill or carving through a corner, OverDrive transmits input directly to the front wheel for more precise handling.

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. The Advanced Forged composite rocker arm weighs less than the previous aluminum version while being stiffer and stronger. Together, these innovations result in the following core benefits.

BoostWider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.

Internal Cable Routing for Front Derailleur, Rear Derailleur and Rear Brake

Fork

Fox 34 RhythmRhythm forks share the same air spring as the Float 34, but feature 6000 series aluminum upper tubes along with the FIT GRIP damper.

Wheel Set

Maxxis High Roller II Wide Trail TiresAn open and aggressive tread design gives the High Roller II excellent soil penetration and mud-clearing ability. A square profile provides a solid, consistent feel across the knobs. Modified knobs on the shoulder and center improve braking performance and traction on hard surfaces. An excellent choice for technical, loose terrain. Wide trail (WT) casing specs are optimized for 30-35mm inner width rims.

Tubless SystemFewer 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.

Additional Features

Giant Contact Switch Dropper SeatpostTrail conditions change in the blink of an eye -- transition from steep climbs to gnarly descents and never skip a beat with the all-new Contact Switch seatpost.
