Chaotic starts, the battle for position, red zone climbs and technical descents. XC racing is where adrenaline meets endurance, and this all-new superlight hardtail gives you just the kick you need to move up through the pack.

When it comes to pure XC racing speed and performance, nothing beats the efficiency of a lightweight carbon hardtail. The new XtC Advanced SL 29 builds on its World Cup pedigree with a totally re-engineered frame that represents the lightest off-road machine we’ve ever built. The superlight chassis is handcrafted with pro-level Advanced SL carbon, featuring geometry that’s optimized for its balanced, stable and fast-rolling 29-inch wheels. Each one is custom assembled with a specific carbon layup schedule that varies according to frame size. The result? Supercharged climbing efficiency, smooth compliance through roots, rocks and ruts, and uncompromising performance to match your XC obsession.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS

Superlight and responsive

Pro-level Advanced SL carbon frame is the lightest off-road frame Giant has ever produced, offering serious XC racers a competitive advantage for climbing, accelerating and sprinting.

Ultra-efficient

The frame is engineered with the highest stiffness-to-weight-ratio of any hardtail mountain bike in its class, which translates to ultra-efficient pedalling power and precise handling on the trail.

Custom compliance

Each frame is custom-tuned based on its size. Individual carbon lay-up schedules are created to optimise vertical compliance to produce a smoother ride quality on XC terrain.

ADVANCED COMPOSITE SL FRAME
Professional-grade raw carbon material is woven in our own composite factory using our most advanced engineering and construction methods including Continuous Fiber Technology to add strength while reducing weight and Carbon Nanotube Technology resin to improve impact resistance.
3
OVERDRIVE
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
7
Giant Tubeless System
Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.
4
Internal Cable Routing
Internal cable routing with fewer, yet larger ports and tool-free bottom bracket guide, ensures easy cable installation while minimizing frame weight.
6
PowerCore
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
5
MegaDrive
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
8
Boost Technology
Wider hub spacing (110mm front / 148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
2
Optimized Tube Shaping
A completely redesigned XtC Advanced SL 29 frame optimizes every tube shape to shave weight, maintain stiffness and improve ride quality on XC terrain.
