Make friends with gravity, both up and of course, down, on Giant's Trance Advanced SX 27.5. Giant's renowned Maestro rear end provides the action behind the whole operation, orchestrating 140mm of bump-swallowing suspension courtesy of a Fox Float-X CTD Factory shock. Up front, a Fox 34 CTD Factory fork reduces rock gardens to ant hills, and with a flip of a switch, adjusts from firm for hard-charging climbs, soft for warp-speed descents, and perfectly dialed for everything in between. Throw in a SRAM 1x11 X01 drivetrain for slick shifts and the right gear for whatever the trail can hurl your way, not to mention a set of Giant 27.5-inch wheels for precision steering. Plus, with a Giant stem, bar, and the requisite remote-activated dropper post, you've got an enduro monster that's fit for the climbs and even more stoked for the descents.
