Giant's Trance 27.5 is one of the best trail bikes there is. It's perfectly suited to UK style riding with plush 140mm suspension and great control for going down plus a super-efficient yet simple suspension system for going up. The heart of the Trance is its Maestro suspension system which uses optimized pivot points and linkages to give the best marriage of rear wheel travel path and suspension efficiency. There's no need for rear shock lockout levers as the Maestro system is so efficient you don't need it! The Trance frame is optimized for 27.5 wheels which are perfectly suited to UK trails giving excellent roll over characteristics whilst maintaining the high maneuverability that you'd expect from a Trance. Giant use their Aluxx SL aluminium tubing to keep weight low and an Overdrive tapered fork steerer to keep steering accuracy high.
The Giant Trance 27.5 1 uses Fox's new 2016 Kashima coated Float Factory fork which has 34mm stanchions for better steering control and suspension response. The Float Factory rear shock is Kashima coated too giving lower friction and better durability. The Trance 27.5 is fitted with a drivetrains based on SRAM's new X1 1x11 groupset which offers a the simplicity of a single chainring setup with the huge gear range of a 10-42 cassette. Guide brakes, renowned as some of the most powerful around, do the stopping.
Giant's TRX Composite wheelsystem keeps the bike rolling along. The composite rims are trail specific with a wide profile for better tyre support and feature a proper tubeless bead seat for reliable tyre sealing. The carbon composite rim material keeps weight down whilst maximizing stiffness and strength.
The Trance 27.5 1 comes complete with Giant's award winning Contact SL Switch R dropper seatpost allowing you to drop your saddle for better control when the trail gets steep.
If you're looking for a trail bike which is fully loaded with some of the very best components available and then Giant Trance 27.5 1 is tough to beat.
