When every gram and pedal stroke mean the difference between the podium and going home empty-handed, Giant's World Cup XC racers run the full carbon XTC Advanced SL 29er Frame. A tapered head tube flows into the MegaDrive down tube, which in turn attaches to a huge bottom bracket to deliver laser-sharp handling and explosive acceleration. Add to that the confidence and control of 29-inch wheels and you can see why your competition sees the XTC as an unfair advantage. Don't go home empty handed.
Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug
