The best performance you can get is when you get maximum bike-for-your-dollar. The Giant Stance 29 2 does exactly that.

Giant's ALUXX-grade aluminum frame gets the Stance 29 2 off to a great start, with light weight, precise handling and excellent power transfer. The bike's geometry is more relaxed than an XC bike, improving confidence on steep descents and broken terrain. Giant's lightweight FlexPoint rear suspension allows the rear wheel to follow the contours of the trails with minimal moving parts. Managing the bike's handling is done with air-adjustable suspension front and rear. Out back, a Suntour Raidon R rear shock offers up 120mm of travel. Up front, a Giant Crest 34 RCL fork with 130mm of travel helps keep the bike where you point it. Both shocks feature adjustable rebound knobs for dialing in handling precision. A tapered OverDrive head tube improves handling in twisty singletrack, while internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and sleek.

One of the component highlights of the Stance 29 2 is the addition of Shimano's 12-speed Deore single-chainring drivetrain. Yes, this is a 12-speed full-suspension mountain bike for less than $2000! A Shimano Deore shifter, Shimano Deore 10-51T cassette, Shimano chain, and a clutch-equippped Shimano Deore rear derailleur delivers brilliant performance-per-dollar! A 30T Praxis Cadet alloy crankset does power delivery duty over every inch of the trail.

Rolling stock consists of Giant's own tubeless-ready alloy AM 29 wheels and knobby tubeless-ready 29x2.35" Maxxis Forekaster tires. The combination of a 30mm inner rim width, tubeless capability and aggressive tire tread adds boatloads of traction in rock gardens and loose surfaces. Speed control is critical in technical terrain, and Shimano's MT200 hydraulic disc brakes help with that task in all conditions, sunny or muddy. An alloy Connect seatpost, Romero saddle, alloy Contact stem, and alloy Connect Trail handlebar complete this amazing value in a trail bike.
