XC riders, rejoice! How about a crazy-light, full-carbon 29er hardtail with razor-sharp handling and blazing acceleration? Yes, please! Giant's XTC Composite 29er 1 is equipped with a tapered head tube for quick steering, a massive, OverDrive down tube for precise tracking and asymmetrical chainstays for tire and mud clearance. Up front, Fox gives you a 100mm fork so you float above the trail effortlessly and a 15mm through-axle to slice through any corner out there. You'll hold every line, too, with the big, 29-inch Giant rims and Schwalbe tires hooking up to everything. Forging ahead, you'll churn out blissful miles with a Shimano 2x10 group and pilot your XTC with Giant controls. And since every ride has to come to an end, you have great SLX discs to put the clamps on.
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
