The Advanced composite frameset is designed with suspension-optimized geometry and paired with a 40mm travel fork, delivering a smooth, controlled ride quality on rugged gravel and dirt. A flip chip on the rear dropout lets you adjust the wheelbase and increase tire clearance up to 53mm. You can use the included dropper post, switch to a proprietary Giant D-Fuse seatpost for added compliance, or use a standard 30.9mm round seatpost. A Contact SL XR D-Fuse handlebar further minimizes fatigue by absorbing shocks and vibrations.
Smooth Control: Composite frameset is designed specifically for front suspension. With 40mm of travel, the fork absorbs bumps and impacts so you can ride smoother and faster over rugged gravel and dirt.
Tuned Compliance: Lowered seatstays with smaller diameter tubes absorb road shocks and vibrations. A Contact SL XR D-Fuse handlebar adds more compliance without sacrificing the stiffness needed for cornering, sprinting or climbing.
- Adaptable to the Terrain: A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting also allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can use the included dropper/suspension seatpost for added capabilities, or switch to a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost or traditional 30.9mm round seatpost.
