COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information

Due to a combination of new working practices and demand our lead times for both collection and delivery have been extended.

Where delivery times are stated as a month this is based on the latest information from the manufacturer. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change. Due to an increase in global demand for bicycles and the disruption in supply during the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have become very strained. Lead times are based on factory and shipping schedules both of which can be disrupted by delays in component supply and shipping/port capacity.

Should you place a future order with us for a bicycle we will monitor the bikes ETA and keep you informed of any changes.

This Giant XTC Advanced 29 SL 2020 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

The all new XTC Advanced SL 29 builds on its World Cup pedigree with a totally reengineered frame that represents the lightest off-road machine ever built by Giant. The superlight chassis is handcrafted with pro-level Advanced SL composite for a total weight of 920 grams (size medium).

Designed to optimise the stability and speed of 29-inch wheels for XC terrain, the XTC Advanced hardtail deliver quick acceleration and responsive handling on the trail. Each frame is custom-tuned based on its size, with individual composite lay-up schedules made to optimise vertical compliance without compromising frame stiffness.

Beyond the frame materials, geometry has also been updated to meet the needs of Giant's pro XC racers, delivering a super-responsive ride that flies up climbs and boosts control on rugged XC racetracks and trails. An aggressive 69.5-degree headtube angle allows for quick but confident front-end handling, while the 73.5-degree seattube angle positions riders securely forward for aggressive climbing.

The XTC Advanced is designed around a 100mm suspension fork and features optimised tube shaping to shave weight, maintain stiffness and improve ride quality. It also features a 30.9mm diameter seatpost, which makes it easy to add a dropper post for riding aggressive XC terrain.

Boost hub spacing delivers stiffer wheel performance, added tyre clearance and improved handling on the trail, and Giant Tubeless System technology is also included out of the box. With Giant WheelSystems and tubeless ready tyres fitted it's easier than ever to enjoy the benefits of added traction, smoother trail control, and a reduced risk of flat tyres.

If you are looking for a truly exceptional race hardtail then the XTC Advanced SL is the pinnacle of performance.

Please note: This model features tubeless ready wheels and tyres which offer a superior ride and less rolling resistance than traditional innertubes. This system requires tyre sealant to function correctly and this will be fitted in our workshop prior to despatch. The nature of this sealant means that the tyre may not be fully sealed until it has been ridden a short distance and therefore the bicycle may arrive with reduced pressure in the tyres. Please check the bicycle's tyres are inflated to the recommended pressure before cycling.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard. A suspension pump can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
