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.

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.

RockShox Deluxe RHow do you improve on the success of a rear shock that has received critical acclaim for its stellar performance and supple feel? It’s simple. You rewrite the rules, throw existing design constraints out the window and focus solely on the best possible performance solution. We took the proven damping performance of our popular Monarch series and introduced it to our new metric-sized chassis. The result is truly Deluxe, ready to redefine your ride.

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.

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.
