Giant's entry-level "road hybrid" brings plenty of value to every ride. A lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame, Shimano shifting and Tektro disc brakes are just part of the bike's best features.
The Escape 3's frame is not only light, but but is exceptionally strong, making it a brilliant grocery-getter and daily commuter. Nimble handling makes the Escape 3 a capable city bike, while room for tires up to 45mm ride adds versatility for truly rough surfaces. Details like rack and fender mounts, bottle cage mounts and an alloy D-Fuse seatpost demonstrate Giant's exceptional value.
Shimano's trigger-style shifters and Tourney derailleurs offer precise shifting. A 48/38/28T alloy triple crankset boasts a huge gearing range for tackling challenging hills while loaded down.
Rides in the rain can be unpredictable, especially when braking. Tektro's cable-operated disc brakes make for much better lever feel and stopping power, even in wet and rainy conditions. Even the Escape 3's 700x38c S-X3 tires bring a bigger footprint for confident cornering and braking. A comfy Giant Sport saddle finishes off this impressive urban runabout.
