About Giant Trance 29 2 2020
This super versatile trail machine is built on an updated ALUXX SL frameset that blends Giant’s latest Maestro suspension technology with progressive, trail-oriented geometry. To soak up every bump, from big rocks to small undulations, Giant gave it a trunnion mount shock and an Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm. This combination produces 115mm of smooth, active rear wheel travel that puts you in control. Up front, it features a 130mm travel suspension fork, and the overall geometry has been tuned and developed to maximise its performance on rugged trails.
Features and Technologies
29er confidence and control: Larger 29 inch diameter wheels roll over rugged terrain with balance and stability, giving you the momentum to tackle technical climbs and the confidence to fly on fast, rugged singletrack descents.
Latest suspension tech: Updated Maestro rear suspension features a trunnion mount shock with a longer stroke and smoother feel. With 115mm of full rear travel (and 130mm up front), it has the new Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm for increased stiffness and strength plus lower overall frame weight.
Trail-tuned chassis: The lightweight and durable ALUXX SL aluminium frameset features updated geometry, including an aggressive 66.5 degree headtube angle and 74.5 degree seattube angle, plus a 44mm fork offset. The result is a bike with agile and efficient climbing capabilities plus added control for high speed descents.
