Master technical XC terrain with speed, efficiency and control. This 29er with the latest Maestro suspension technology is perfect for XC racing, marathons or epic days on the trail.

With an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this smooth-riding 29er delivers speed, balance and control on fast, technical XC terrain. It’s optimized for larger-diameter wheels with an updated Maestro suspension system that’s configured for a tighter rear triangle. The new geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on climbs and descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces a smooth, supple feel with improved pedalling efficiency. A new Advanced Forged Carbon Composite upper rocker arm is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminium version. A lightweight integrated Giant WheelSystem with Boost technology comes with tubeless tyres already set up, making it easy to experience added efficiency and control on technical terrain.
