Weight: The most accurate way to determine any bikeís 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.
CoMax Composite Technology is an all-new frame material from Giant, the world leader in composite engineering. With a balanced blend of comfort and light weight, CoMax framesets are built and tuned to deliver a better cycling experience for sport and fitness riders.
Optimized blend of Performance Grade raw carbon material and fiber-reinforced polymer delivers a ride experience that is both smooth and efficient.
Performance Formula resin features a high level of void minimization (bubbles) while maintaining good strength characteristics.
Modified Monocoque Construction: The front triangle (downtube, headtube, toptube, seattube) is assembled and molded as one continuous piece. This front half is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process. Modified Monocoque eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
CoMax framesets offer up to 10 percent better compliance compared to aluminum framesets.
CoMax framesets are up to 200 grams lighter than comparable aluminum framesets.
