Giant SA introduces all-new Stance 29 trail bike

Giant, the world leader in cycling technology, is introducing a new full-suspension trail bike with progressive 29er geometry and proven technologies that make it a smart choice for trail riders seeking performance and value. The Stance 29, with an ALUXX aluminium frame and FlexPoint rear suspension, delivers greater control, faster speeds, and smooth-riding confidence on a variety of terrain.

First introduced in 2015 as a highly capable full-suspension choice for aspiring XC and trail riders, the Stance range has gained a following for its high-value off-road performance and versatility. The original Stance marked the debut of FlexPoint suspension, a single-pivot setup that offers reliable, active rear suspension to trail riders looking to boost their skills and speed on rugged terrain.

 

The all-new Stance 29 features progressive frame geometry that’s optimized for larger diameter wheels. The FlexPoint suspension system provides 120mm of rear wheel travel, and new “long and low” geometry includes a 67.5-degree headtube angle and 75-degree seattube angle—a combination that optimizes the roll-over capabilities and momentum of the bike’s 29-inch wheels.

The new frame is also designed around a 130mm suspension fork for added control on technical trails, and all models in the Stance 29 series feature Giant WheelSystems and tires with tubeless technology right out of the box.

Great value bike! Are we not getting the 1 in Sa?

Rear hub is quick release, really? Seems a short sighted way to save a few cents.

That and a dropper and this bike would still be under 30k.

Also they should really toss a better front tyre on there...
