Giant's aluminum Trance X 29er 1 sports 125mm of Maestro suspension for sure-footed climbing and the ability to hang it out while descending. Fox has you covered with their Float CTD fork and shock for balanced travel that you can dial in on the fly: climb, trail, or descend, match it to whatever the trail throws at you. SRAM hooks up an X7/X9 drivetrain for quick, authoritative shifting, Giant wheels with Schwalbe rubber corner hard and Shimano disc brakes slow you down and keep you from getting in over your head. Plus, the remote dropper post means the flow never has to stop. So let's review: your suspension is always doing what you want it to, the 2x10 gearing means you're always in the right gear, and your saddle is always the right height. The toughest climbs, the trickiest sections, and fastest descents just met their match.

Not as comfortable as my couch, but lots more fun!
The Trance 29 01 was not bilt for the street, so keep it off road in the dirt.
