XC riders, rejoice! A crazy-light, full-carbon 29er hardtail with razor-sharp handling and blazing acceleration? Yes, please! Giant's XTC Composite 29er 1 is equipped with a tapered head tube for quick steering, a massive, OverDrive down tube for precise tracking and asymmetrical chainstays for tire and mud clearance. Up front, Fox gives you a 100mm fork so you float above the trail effortlessly and a 15mm through-axle to slice through any line out there. You'll hold every line, too, with the big, 29-inch Giant rims and Schwalbe tires hooking up to everything. Forging ahead, you'll churn out blissful miles with a SRAM 2x10 X7 group and pilot your XTC with Giant controls. And since every ride has to come to an end, you have Avid Elixir discs to put the clamps on.
