The Details

The Giant XTC SLR 29 delivers fast, confident performance on technical XC trails, with efficiency and agility that makes light work or climbs, descents and singletrack alike.

 
The ALUXX SLR frame delivers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any Giant aluminium frame, with tube shapes specifically design the shave weight while maintaining frame stiffness and improving ride quality. Internal cable routing also adds to the weight saving, as well as creating a cleaner look to the bike and protecting the cables from premature wear. The combination of the MegaDrive downtube, OverDrive 2 headtube and PowerCore bottom bracket area work seamlessly together to boost power transfer and pedalling stiffness as well as improve the frame's agility. The frame is also ready to accept a dropper seatpost upgrade.
 
Shimano's Deore XT 12 speed groupset brings the capabilities of Shimano's unrivalled range of gears to a more accessible price point, giving you a huge range of smooth shifting gears for any gradient without breaking the bank. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide superb stopping power and modulation no matter the weather conditions, for the same great braking performance in thick, wet mud or loose sandy tracks. Giant XCT 29er rims roll ably over obstacles and keep your speed and momentum on longer pedalling sections, shod with Maxxis Recon Race tyres which are tubeless ready, enabling you to quickly and easily make the tubeless conversion letting you decrease your rolling resistance, run lower pressures for added comfort and traction, as well as massively reducing your risk of picking up a flat.
