When every gram and pedal stroke mean the difference between the podium and going home empty-handed, Giant's XC racers run the full composite XTC Advanced SL 27.5 0. An OverDrive steerer flows into the MegaDrive down tube, which in turn attaches to a massive bottom bracket to deliver laser-sharp handling and explosive acceleration. Add to that the speed and control of 27.5-inch composite wheels, and you can see why your competition sees the XTC as an unfair advantage. Continuing with only the top end, the XTC is equipped with a 100mm RockShox SID World Cup XX fork and a SRAM XX1 1x11 drivetrain with Avid XX World Cup brakes for for the ultimate in riding performance. More of the best-of-the-best are represented with a composite bar, stem and seatpost. Whether you're into racing or just embarrassing your friends, don't go home empty handed.
