Giant's XTC Advanced 27.5 1 elevates your game as you tackle the trail's elevation. A born climber with the heart and soul of a fast descender, the XTC's nimble ride comes from the Advanced-grade composite frame that soaks up trail vibration while maintaining stiffness for awesome pedaling power. Leading the way, the Fox 32 Float Performance fork takes on brake-bump chatter as well as big hits with 100mm of travel. Giant's 27.5-inch composite wheels add quickness through techy sections and stability everywhere else, not to mention corner-slashing stiffness. You'll need all that because speed comes quick thanks to Shimano's legendary XT drivetrain that clicks effortlessly into the right gear every time. Once you cross the finish line, slow it down with Shimano XT brakes that have power to spare. This lightweight racer is topped off with Giant components like a composite seatpost, low rise handlebar, and supportive saddle.
