About Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 1 2020
It took years for Giant’s team of engineers, product designers and pro riders to create a new short travel 29er that met their high standards. The wait was worth it. The latest iteration of this legendary trail bike marks a huge step forward, offering a true advantage in all-round trail performance. It starts with a full composite frame that’s fitted with Giant’s most up-to-date Maestro suspension. The Advanced Forged composite rocker arm and trunnion mount shock help produce 115mm of smooth rear wheel travel that’s active and sensitive to small bumps, giving you killer traction and confident control. The frame geometry is updated with progressive headtube and seattube angles, shorter chainstays and a longer toptube—all engineered to balance the speed and control of its 29 inch wheels with the quickness and agility you need to rail corners, hammer through rock gardens and do it all with confidence and control.
Features and Technologies
29er confidence and control: Larger 29 inch diameter wheels roll over rough 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 wheel 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 Advanced grade composite 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.
