Proven through countless pro wins, this lightweight composite cyclocross bike delivers quick acceleration, smooth handling and total control on dry pavement, loose dirt, deep sand or slick mud—everything you need to aim for the podium.
Key Performance Factors
Elite level efficiency
Advanced-grade composite frameset is 17.5 percent lighter than the previous generation while retaining its best-in-class torsional/pedaling stiffness.
Integrated disc brake technology with flat mounts and thru-axle hubs, combined with tubeless ready Giant WheelSystem, delivers added control in variable conditions and all types of weather.
Smooth ride quality
D-Fuse composite seatpost helps absorb bumps and vibrations, and you also have the option to switch to a standard 30.9mm round or dropper post depending on your riding style and terrain.
