A heritage of craftsmanship combined with unmatched manufacturing capabilities gives Giant the unique ability to monitor every step of the aluminum frame-building process. Giant use cutting-edge materials science, proprietary forming techniques, and attention to detail. They are constantly advancing aluminum performance to create bikes that are lighter, stronger and stiffer. The difference can be felt in the ride. Every aluminum bike bearing the ALUXX Aluminum Technology label must live up to the highest standards and meet the tightest tolerances of any aluminum frame in the world.
SUSPENSION PERFORMANCE MADE SIMPLE
Using the flexing elements of the rear chainstay and seatstay, FlexPoint Suspension eliminates complex pivots and linkages to provide an effective, lightweight and durable suspension system that’s easy to maintain.
Key advantages include:
The proven “single-pivot” suspension design offers trail riders increased control therefore more confident off-road riding can be achieved.
LIGHT AND DURABLE
The flexing action of the chainstay/seatstay junction creates a simple, lightweight and durable system. This system provides 4.7 inches/120mm of rear wheel travel.
FlexPoint offers similar benefits as multi-link suspension systems but without the added costs or the need for frequent maintenance.
HOW IT WORKS
- No mechanical rear pivot point:
The flexing action of the chainstay/ seatstay junction creates 4.7inches/120mm of rear wheel travel.
- Proven “single pivot” suspension performance:
FlexPoint’s single pivot suspension design delivers effective performance for light-to-medium trail riding capabilities.
- ALUXX Aluminum swingarm:
Giant proprietary swingarm design provides the flexing elements of FlexPoint suspension for durable and effective performance.
FEATURES: Giant’s original oversized fork steerer-tube technology. Designed to provide solid front-end steering performance. The system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube provide optimal steering stiffness. Road models feature 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/4-inch bottom bearings, while the mountain version features 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings.
BENEFIT: OverDrive provides up to 15 percent more torsional steering stiffness than straight steerer-tube designs. This translates into much more accurate steering input from a rider’s hands, through the handlebar and stem, and down to the front wheel. Whether hammering uphill or carving through a corner, OverDrive transmits input directly to the front wheel for more precise handling.
