Unlock new terrain with this progressive new gravel bike featuring front suspension technology. The lightweight aluminum frame has suspension-adjusted geometry and a rear flip chip that lets you adjust wheelbase and tire clearance for any adventure.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Lightweight aluminum frameset is designed specifically for front suspension. With 40mm of travel, the fork absorbs impacts so you can ride smoother and faster over rugged gravel and dirt.
Lowered seatstays with smaller diameter tubes absorb road shocks and vibrations. A Contact SL XR D-Fuse handlebar adds more compliance without sacrificing the stiffness needed for cornering, sprinting or climbing.
Adaptable to the terrain
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting also allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can use the included dropper/suspension seatpost for added capabilities, or switch to a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost or traditional 30.9mm round seatpost.
An ALUXX aluminum frameset with suspension-optimized geometry is paired with a purpose-built short-travel (40mm) fork. A flip chip on the rear dropouts allows you to adjust the wheelbase and increase tire clearance up to 53mm.You can use the included dropper seatpost, switch to a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost, or use a traditional 30.9mm round seatpost. A Contact SL D-Fuse handlebar minimizes fatigue by further absorbing shocks and vibrations.
- Frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight framesets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.
- 40mm of front travel expands this bike's capabilities, improving control and reducing fatigue while riding rough roads, gravel and dirt.
FLIP CHIP DROPOUT
- Geometry, wheelbase and rear tire clearance can be adjusted using two-position hardware in the rear dropouts. A longer wheelbase adds stability and increases tire clearance (up to 53mm), while a shorter wheelbase delivers a quicker, more agile ride.
- A downward sloping top tube (from the head tube to the seat tube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.
- Proprietary D-shaped handlebar works to dampen vibrations and absorb road shock, resulting in a smooth, compliant ride quality.
- New frame design allows you to use the stock dropper seatpost, a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost, or a traditional round 30.9mm seatpost. This lets riders choose the right seatpost for their riding style and terrain.
GIANT TUBELESS SYSTEM
- Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
- The frame and fork are engineered specifically for disc brakes, producing reliable braking performance in all weather and road conditions.
- Designed for precise steering performance, this system's oversized headset bearings (1 1/4" lower and 1 1/8" upper) and tapered steerer tube work together to provide optimal steering stiffness and control.
- A massive rectangular down tube and oversized top tube provide superior lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped down tube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
- A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a threaded, BSA 68 bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
