Giant Reign SX 2020
About Giant Reign SX 2020
This amped up version of the Reign enduro and all-mountain machine is made for riders who gravitate toward steep, rough and aggressive descents. It offers a longer travel 180mm fork and robust components that make it suitable for unforgiving terrain. The super strong and stiff ALUXX SL aluminium frame features updated geometry with a longer cockpit that’s designed to optimise its 27.5 inch wheels. The trunnion mount Maestro rear suspension system offers 160mm of smooth, active travel and is bolstered by the new Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm, which is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminium design. If hammering through rock gardens and flying down steep descents is your idea of the perfect ride, then Reign SX is the machine for you.
Key Performance Factors
27.5 agility and control: 27.5 inch wheels balance agility and control, giving you the ability to roll over rugged terrain, flick the bike at speed, change lines and explode out of corners.
Latest suspension tech: Updated Maestro rear suspension features a trunnion mount shock with a longer stroke and smoother feel. With 160mm of travel (and 180mm up front), it has the new Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm for increased stiffness and strength plus lower overall frame weight.
Enduro geometry: The lightweight and stiff Advanced grade composite frameset features updated enduro style geometry, so you can ride aggressive descents and rail corners with confidence.
