Hybrids come in all shapes and sizes now, but our customers are looking for a bike that does plenty of things well. The Escape 1 Disc does exactly that!
The flagship of the Escape line uses the same ALUXX-Grade aluminum frame as the rest of the line, and finishes it off with a Composite carbon fiber fork that keeps overall bike weight low. The fork's ride quality also makes rougher roads just a little smoother, too. Out back, an alloy D-Fuse seatpost soaks up impacts better than a classic cylindrical post. With room for up to 45c tires, the Escape 1 Disc can tackle rough roads, gravel and dirt paths with ease. Mounts for racks, fenders and bottle cages add an extra level of practicality to the bike. An upright fit makes it easy to see the road ahead.
The Shimano drivetrain on the Escape 1 Disc is especially precise, featuring a Shadow-style Alivio mountain bike derailleur that shifts well under hard pedaling loads. The alloy Shimano 46/30T crankset boasts flex-free power delivery, while an 11-36T Shimano cassette brings a wide gearing range to the bike. Tubeless-ready alloy Giant GX wheels are wrapped with 700x38c Giant Crosscut Metro treaded tires, adding easy acceleration and confident grip to every ride. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes command excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. A Giant Sport Comfort saddle, and alloy handlebar and stem completes the Escape 1 Disc.
