Built for World Cup pros, Giant's Glory Advanced 27.5 0 features a crazy-light, super-stiff Advanced-grade composite front triangle, ALUXX SL aluminum rear swingarm, and 8-inches of terrain-crushing Maestro suspension. Even the nastiest drops and chunkiest rock sections will feel like they're pulling punches with the 200mm trail-chewing travel from the RockShox Boxxer Team fork and the Vivid R2C coil shock damping the blows. Aggressive, World Cup-proven, long and low geometry ekes out top speeds on even the most demanding downhill courses, allowing you to stay pinned over insane terrain.
As the tapered Overdrive head tube nails your lines with pinpoint precision, the durable 27.5-inch DT Swiss wheels with Schwalbe rubber may convince you they're magnetically drawn to the finish line. Before you get there, though, a few sharp pedal strokes might be required, and SRAM's ingenious X01DH drivetrain with X-Sync technology—paired with an MRP G3 chainguide—keeps a lock on your chain while delivering rapid shifting of its perfectly stepped 7-speed cassette. In the moment between pulling the brake levers and the solid SRAM Guide RSC discs stopping you at the bottom of the lift, you'll have just enough time to glance back up the mountain, smile, and think about the winner's party.
