Giant Mountain Bikes Sale – Hardtails
There are currently five hardtails, that you my find in a Giant mountain bikes sale. Giant make their frames out of aluminium and carbon, but they have their own names for them.
The Giant ATX is their entry level hardtail bike, designed for cross-country riding. There are two versions, but they are very similar. Therefore, you may as well buy the cheaper version and save some money.

Their are a few versions of the Giant Talon too. There are entry level and mid level versions to choose from. They are more capable than the ATX, thanks to their geometry. The more expensive version of the Giant Talon has an impressive specification. You can buy one with 27.5″ or 29″ wheels, depending on your taste.

The Giant Fathom has more travel on the forks than the AYX and Talon (120mm). However, the geometry is quite similar, but it does use the more fancy Aluxx SL aluminium frame material. This makes the bike more expensive, but it is a very capable cross-country hardtail. It is also available with 27.5″ and 29″ wheels options.

The XTC is Giant’s carbon fibre, hardtail cross-country bike. It is a fast riding lightweight racing machine, that is very versatile, especially if you opt for the plus sized tyre version.

Giant Mountain Bikes Sale – Full Suspension
Giants uses a suspension system that they call maestro. It is a twin link pivot design. This is when the rear swing arm is attached to the front triangle by two pairs of links. It is Giant’s tried and tested method that they have been using for years, and is one of the most refined systems you will find on the market.
There are five full suspension mountain bikes on the market:
There is only one version of the Giant Stance. This is their entry level full suspension bike, with 120mm of travel. This is a very well specced bike for the price and is very capable. It even comes with a dropper seat post!

The Giant Trance has 140mm of travel on the rear and 150mm on the fork. That is, unless you buy the 29″ version, which has just 115mm of travel on the back. However, the 29er changes the geometry significantly, and makes it more lively and capable. Again, this is a very well specced bike, with lots of up to date technology. There are four different versions of the Giant Trance with aluminium frames and three with advanced carbon frames.

The Reign is Giant’s enduro race bike with 160mm of travel. This is a superb bike and is ideal for very rough terrain or taking on the alps. It is very well-balanced bike with sensitive suspension and forgiving flex in the frame. It is one of the best bikes you can buy in this price range. Therefore, if you can find one in a Giant mountain bikes sale, you are going to be very happy with it.

The Giant Anthem is a cross-country race bike, but it is also great for aggressive trail riding. This 29er, is very well specced, but could do with a dropper seat post. It is a very capable and fun bike that will handle everything that most riders will throw at it.
