For nearly four decades, Giant has been devoted to bicycles and cycling. At Giant, the two-wheeler is more than just a machine, it’s an integral component of society, a friend and a way to explore the boundaries of your world. Combine this passion with ultra-advanced manufacturing and design and the result is some of the world’s finest bicycles.
Take their formulaOne carbon for example. Created with Giant’s proprietary composite technologies, it achieves a superior balance of the qualities cyclists hold most dear: stiffness, lightness and ride quality. Giant’s engineers layer the composite weave placing the precise amount of material where it’s needed for efficiency and strength while fine-tuning the material for optimum compliance, too.
And, formulaOne stands out from lesser composite technologies because Giant controls the entire process start to finish — from the countless field-testing hours, to the meticulous engineering conducted by Giant’s own engineering staff, to the hand lay-up of frames at the factory.
Considering the fact that Giant was one of the first manufacturers to mass produce aluminum bicycles, it’s fair to say the company knows a thing or two about aluminum technology, too. Building upon a 34-year manufacturing
history, Giant continues to bring the most advanced techniques to its aluminum framebuilding process.
This includes using the most sophisticated alloys and butting techniques available to push the limits of the material. Formed from raw materials in their own forging facility, Giant’s proprietary aluminum features a 30% increase in stiffness over traditional 6061 aluminum, allowing engineers to use less material throughout the tubes, which results in lighter frames while never sacrificing strength and durability. And the resulting Giant ALUXX SL tubing is some of the finest aluminum tubing in the world, and ideal for all your road and off-road riding.
Speaking of off road, Giant’s Maestro full-suspension bicycles tame every conceivable trail condition. Using a single pivot point to neutralize both braking and pedaling forces, it’s able to soak up high-frequency trail vibrations and big hits alike, while maintaining its legendary pedaling efficiency the entire time. So, from the downhill start gate to the cross-country finish line, and everywhere in-between, Maestro will get you there in style!
