Engineered to offer the agility of a 26" with the stability and speed of a 29er through a custom Giant geometry. With its OverDrive 2 steerer tubing and impressively stiff composite frame the Giant XTC Composite 29er 1 MTB offers razor sharp handling on any trail.
A MegaDrive down tube and top tube give the Giant XTC Composite 29er 1 Hardtail Mountain Bike supreme chassis stiffness while a PowerCore bottom bracket area helps to maximise traction and pedalling efficiency.
Equipped to the Giant XTC Composite 29er 1 is a selection of premium, race ready components including a full Shimano XT drivetrain, Fox fork and a selection of Giant's own branded Connect components to create a lightweight and durable mountain bike at an affordable price.
As the first manufacturer to bring the tapered headtube to market - with the 2006 Glory mountain bike - Giant knows a thing or two about inventing solutions for improved steering precision. The original OverDrive technology resulted in groundbreaking stiffness-to-weight ratios, and now Giant is doing it again with an all-new standard: OverDrive 2.
T-600 raw carbon fiber is used to create the composite material used for these lightweight, stiff and compliant framesets. Blending performance and value, this technology features modified monocoque construction.
