With Giant taking the lead in 27.5"-wheeled mountain bikes, it comes as no surprise that the Trance 27.5 2 is a serious off-road performer. With perfected geometry, a superlight ALUXX SL-grade aluminum frame, and rugged Shimano components, the Trance is the total package for hard, day-long riding.
Giant's ALUXX SL-grade aluminum is a perfect starting point for a trail bike. Hydroformed aluminum adds incredible torsional strength while keeping weight low. A press-fit bottom bracket all but eliminates crank flex, while a tapered OverDrive steerer adds precision to the Trance's handling package. An air-adjustable Fox 32 Float Performance suspension fork helps handle rock gardens and technical trails with 140mm of travel. A 15mm thru-axle adds a scalpel-like feel in really rocky singletrack. Giant's own Maestro rear suspension soaks up ugly trails with 140mm of travel with the help of an air-adjustable Fox Float Performance shock. Internal cable routing also adds life to derailleur cables.
Shimano's 10-speed Deore shifters, front derailleur, SLX Shadow+ rear derailleur and 36/22T SLX crankset make for a rugged drivetrain with quick shfting and an easy feel. A huge 11-36T cassette helps with roller coaster trails. Alloy 27.5" Giant S XC-2 wheels are tubeless-ready and are shod with Schwalbe Nobby Nic 27.5x2.25" tires for aggressive grip in a wide variety of trail surfaces. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide confident stopping power in messy and muddy conditions. A Giant Connect SL Switch-R dropper post gets the saddle out of the way during sudden dropoffs. Neat, huh?
