2018 Giant Trance 3

Trance doesn’t care where the trail goes. Up, down, all around, it always delivers speed, flow, and total control.

This is a trail bike that thrives in the most challenging conditions. The frameset is engineered with a lightweight yet super strong and stiff ALUXX SL aluminum frame with updated Maestro rear suspension featuring a Trunnion-mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm. The result: 140mm of smooth, active rear travel to conquer the roughest trails. Frame geometry is designed around its 27.5-inch wheels, which deliver both quickness and control on rugged terrain. It also comes with a 150mm suspension fork for even more confidence, making it perfect for technical terrain.

- ALUXX SL-grade aluminum frame with 140mm of Maestro suspension and clearance for 2.6 tires
- SR Suntour Aion 35 150mm-travel fork with Boost thru-axle
- RockShox Deluxe R trunnion mount rear shock
- Giant XC-1 Disc wheelset with Maxxis High Roller II tubeless tires
- Shimano Deore 1x10-speed shifting with Shimano M365 hydraulic disc brakes

    The bike is perfect for me. Ive had only one complaint with the bike. Its that when you push on the back suspension the brake cord sticks and the brakes hold. Im getting that checked out pretty soon though. Otherwise the bike is perfect!
