Giant Reign 27.5 1 (2016) (Matte Black/Grey)
Built to take anything the descent can throw at you and still nimble enough to climb to the top, the Giant Reign is a rock-solid enduro machine. Featuring 160mm of smooth and active Maestro suspension travel, an ALUXX SL aluminum frameset, and cutting-edge 27.5 wheel technology, Reign 27.5 shines brightest when the trail gets rowdy. It’s strong enough to tame aggressive terrain and efficient enough to conquer climbs with ease. Stable geometry, a tapered OverDrive steerer tube design and air or coil shock-compatible shock mounts make Reign 27.5 the choice for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing.

Weight: The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
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.
- Predominantly features 6011 alloy for a high-performance strength-to-weight ratio
- Double butting results in lighter weight without sacrificing strength
- Features PressForming, WarmForming (advanced manipulation of tubeset shaping via an injection of high-pressure air) and FluidForming in select models
- Features both Standard (double-pass weld technique without finish sanding/filing) and Smooth welding techniques for outstanding strength and weight
