SOME ROADS ARE SMOOTH, OTHERS ARE ROUGH. THIS SMOOTH-RIDING ALL-ROUNDER HANDLES IT ALL, TAKING YOU FROM THE MAIN ROUTE TO MORE ADVENTUROUS OPTIONS WITH CONFIDENCE AND CONTROL.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS

Balanced road geometry
Frame is specifically engineered to produce a balanced, all-rounder feel that blends confident rider positioning with agile cornering and acceleration.

Smooth ride quality
Innovative D-Fuse seatpost reduces road shocks and vibrations, and a Giant WheelSystem lets you run tubeless tires up to 38mm for a smoother ride quality and reduced risk of flats.

Total control
Seamless disc brake integration, including flat mounts and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, produces more consistent braking power for better control, even in wet weather and on rough roads.
