Handcrafted with a superlight Advanced-grade carbon frame, this XC flyer features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel and 100mm up front. The new trunnion mount shock produces a lower leverage ratio for better pedaling and braking efficiency, and also allows for shorter chainstays to improve the bike’s climbing capabilities and agility. The Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than the previous aluminum version. And the combination of wider Boost hub spacing and a Giant WheelSystem gives you super strong and stiff wheels for confident, precise handling on XC terrain.
