We've been waiting for Giant to produce a mid travel 29" trail bike for some time now but, it's worth the wait. The Giant Trance X 29" has an active, smooth and supple 135mm of rear travel guided by 150mm of front travel. The geometry is well balanced to let you attack the descent with confidence while also allowing a comfortable ride to the top, ready to do it all again. A neat feature of this model is the addition of a 'flip chip' allowing riders to adjust the geometry to their linking. The 'high setting' gives riders a head angle of 66.2 degrees with a steeper 77.9 degree seat tube angle meanwhile the low settings head angle sits at 65.5 degrees with a 77.2 degree seat angle. These options give you the ability to easily tweak the bike's handling to suit your riding style and local terrain. When you add all these aspects together it's easy to see how the Giant Trance X 29" is so well suited to our local Brisbane mountain bike trails, the best do it all mountain bike we've seen from Giant.
