Features

  • Powercore

    A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.

  • Trunnion Mount

    New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedaling and braking efficiency, plus a lower center of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility

  • Maestro Suspension System

    Uses four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system

  • Overdrive

    Giant's original oversized fork steerer-tube technology. Designed to provide solid front-end steering performance, the system's oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube provide optimal steering stiffness. Road models feature 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/4-inch bottom bearings, while the mountain version features 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings. OverDrive 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.

  • Boost Technology

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

  • Aluxx SL Frame Composition

    Extremely lightweight frameset featuring high-performance strength-to-weight ratios.
