Details

Backed by world championship pedigree, this full composite-framed downhill flyer is back in action with 200mm of reengineered Maestro rear suspension and multiple ways to adjust geometry, rider positioning and rear wheel size. It's all-new, years in the making, coming to race podiums everywhere.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS

RACE-READY SUSPENSION
A new Maestro rear suspension system, developed over several seasons of World Cup racing with Giant engineers and pro athletes, features 200mm of smooth, active travel for race-winning speed. The rear suspension is paired with a 203mm travel fork, providing superior confidence and control on the most extreme DH racetracks and trails.

ULTRA ADJUSTABLE
Three flip chips provide unprecedented adjustability. First, a three-position Maestro flip chip lets you dial in frame geometry for your riding style and terrain. Next, a new headset flip chip adjusts reach so you can easily achieve perfect positioning. And finally, a rear dropout flip chip lets you adjust the overall wheelbase and handling characteristics.

REAR WHEEL OPTIONS:
Choose either a 29-inch or 27.5-inch rear wheel. All models come with a mixed wheel "mullet" stock setup that many racers prefer with the smaller rear wheel creating a snappy, agile feel and increased saddle-to-tire clearance in the rear. For those who favor the rollover speed and stability of two 29-inch wheels, you can easily swap out the rear wheel.

HIGHLIGHTS:
Thoroughly reengineered from the ground up, the new Glory Advanced features a lightweight, super strong composite frame, 200mm of Maestro rear suspension (with a 203mm fork up front), and multiple flip chips to dial in geometry, rear wheel size, fit and positioning. The stock setup is a mixed-wheel configuration with a 29-inch front and 27.5-inch rear, striking a perfect balance of roll-over speed and maneuverability. Riders also have the option to switch to a 29-inch rear wheel using a simple two-position flip chip on the rear dropout. The legend is back.
