“All Guts, All Glory” –Giant’s new 27.5 downhiller

The development story behind Giant's all-new Glory 27.5

Editor’s note: Brice Minnigh has been in Pemberton, British Columbia, testing out the new Giant Glory 27.5. He’s been putting it through the ringer, descending thousands of feet through several types of ecosystems. Read his “Initial Impressions.”

A new Giant downhill bike isn't ready until the Giant Factory Off-Road Team says it's ready. Now, after two years of engineering, development and race testing, the all-new Glory 27.5 is being let loose. With 8 inches (203 millimeters) of proven Maestro Suspension, and a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame made to optimize its 27.5-inch wheels, it's an instant game-changer for downhill riders everywhere.
