Giant's Trance Advanced 27.5 2 plays nice with gravity on the descents but won't play by its rules on the climbs. This composite trail sled floats over rock gardens and roots thanks to Giant's 140mm Maestro rear suspension featuring a RockShox Monarch RT shock. On the front, a RockShox Sektor Gold RL delivers the same suspension action with 140mm of travel. Throw in a SRAM GX 2x10 drivetrain for slick shifts and the right gear for whatever the trail hurls your way, as well as a set of Giant 27.5 wheels for sweet rollover with quick acceleration. Plus, SRAM's stellar Guide R brakes inspire confidence on every inch of dirt. And a Giant dropper post means the perfect riding position, whether the trail grinds up, drops down, or snakes around; it's just a flick of the remote away. The rest of the spec, including Giant's Contact stem, bar and saddle is ready to play nice, but on its own rules.
