Description

Giant's Trance 27.5 SX takes Giant's standard Trance to the next level. Designed for more challenging back country riding and Enduros the SX is fitted with a 160mm Fox TALAS fork and Giant P-AM2 wheelset to handle more challenging terrain than you'll find on a regular trail ride. The heart of the Trance SX 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 SX uses a Fox TALAS with 34mm stanchions and RT4 Damper which can be run in 160mm or 140mm travel mode. The rear shock is a Float X2 unit which offers excellent tenability and the capacity to handle the roughest terrain. The Trance SX 27.5 is fitted with a drivetrain 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.

The Trance SX 27.5 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.

The Trance SX 27.5 is a brilliant machine if you're looking to get into Enduro or need a tough and capable machine for the toughest of trails.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
