Giant XTC Advanced 29er 2 (2019)
For pure xc speed and efficiency, this composite hardtail 29er delivers a responsive ride quality to crank out more miles on fast, flowy singletrack. Use it for a marathon xc race, or switch it up to 27.5+ for more aggressive terrain.
With its large-diameter 29-inch wheels, and an option to switch to 27.5+, this lightweight, advanced-grade composite hardtail lets you choose one bike for multiple riding styles. In its 29er form, it’s ready for smooth, fast singletrack or xc racing. For rougher, more adventurous rides, you might choose the added cushion and control of 27.5+ wheels*.
