This superlight composite XC flyer blends the most up-to-date Maestro suspension technology with the speed, control and stability of progressive 29er geometry. If XC racing is your game, this is your express route to the podium.
Engineered with a superlight Advanced-grade carbon frame, including the front triangle and rear swingarm, this full-suspension 29er features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel and 100mm up front. The proven Maestro rear suspension system includes a trunnion mount shock with a lower leverage ratio for efficient pedaling and braking performance. The linkage allows for shorter chainstays, which improves the bike’s climbing capabilities and overall agility. The Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than the previous aluminum version, and other updates include wider Boost hub spacing and an integrated Giant WheelSystem that gives you super strong and stiff wheels for confident, precise handling on XC terrain.
