With a frameset that’s engineered using ALUXX SLR, our highest-grade aluminum, this superlight and agile 29er delivers speed and efficiency for XC riders and racers. Designed to ride with a 100mm suspension fork, it’s a race-bred climber with quick acceleration. The 29er-specific frame geometry offers an ideal balance of stability and maneuverability on all types of XC terrain. Boost hub spacing gives you added tire clearance and wheel stiffness, and a new Giant WheelSystem with tubeless tires delivers a smoother, more efficient ride plus a reduced risk of flats.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
The lightest aluminum hardtail mountain bike frameset Giant has ever produced helps XC riders and racers climb and accelerate with speed.
With a best-in-class stiffness-to-weight-ratio, the all-new XtC SLR 29 sets the new standard for alloy-XC efficiency.
29er confidence and control
Larger 29-inch diameter wheels roll over rough terrain with balance and stability, giving you momentum on technical climbs and confidence on fast singletrack descents. Can fit up to a 2.4-inch rear tire.
