Product Description

Giant Trance Advanced 2

Upgraded for 2017, the Trance comes ever closer to the ideal all-purpose MTB that can climb like an XC bike and descend like an enduro rig.

The carbon composite frame and wheels help create a lighter weight 140mm-travel all mountain bike.

Connecting the new composite upper link to the rear shock through an equally all-new trunnion mount has enabled Giant to engineer the 2017 Trance with 5mm shorter chainstays and a 10mm longer top tube for superior handling and a 5mm lower bottom bracket for extra stability.

'Climb like an XC racer and descend like an enduro pro. This updated trail machine is light, agile and incredibly versatile.

The all-new Trance Advanced is engineered for speed on technical trails. The lightweight chassis is made with an Advanced-grade composite mainframe that features an updated Maestro Suspension system. A newly designed Trunnion shock mount and an Advanced Forged composite upper rocker arm make the whole system lighter and stronger. You get 140mm of rear suspension travel and 150mm up front, all purpose-built for 27.5 wheels.

New this year is wider Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear), which results in stiffer wheels for added control on rough trails. Boost also increases tyre clearance and improves the chainline for optimal drivetrain performance. Whether you're pinning on a number for a weekend enduro race, or ripping laps in your favourite trail network, the new Trance Advanced gives you cutting edge performance to let you climb faster and descend with more control.

Giant Maestro Full Suspension Mountain Bikes 2017
Maestro is Giant’s award winning suspension platform, which we stock at three levels: 110mm travel Anthem (XC), 140mm-travel Trance (trail) and 160mm travel Reign (enduro).

Being built from scratch as only Giant know how, Maestro full suspension mountain bikes have always been great value. For 2017 Giant have met the challenge of how to make great bikes better by making the frames longer and lower, and the chainstays shorter. Every Giant Maestro model has now adopted the Boost standard for improved wheel strength, stability and tyre clearance. The result: a rig that's more controllable, better tuned for aggressive trail riding and even more fun to ride.

Trunion Mount
For 2017, every Giant Anthem and Trance model has been upgraded with a Trunnion composite shock mount. Bolting the rear shock to this stiffer more compact mount optimises the damping so the tyres grip better, the bike tracks truer and the suspension is more resistant to bottoming out on landings.
