Weight : 20KG

The Giant Trance 2 is a full-suspension aluminium trail bike that is just as at home on trails and XC loops as it is on Alpine adventures and even enduro races.

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 aluminium frame. It has Giant's own updated Maestro rear suspension featuring a trunnion-mount shock and Advanced Forged Carbon Composite rocker arm to soak up bumps small and large. This upper rocker arm is stiff, strong, and lightweight,

You get 140mm of smooth, active rear travel from the Fox Float DPS Performance that gives you the traction and control you need to be one with the trail. Frame geometry is designed around its 27.5 wheels, which deliver both speed and control on rugged terrain. The dropper seatpost allows you to instantly adapt to changing terrain. Just spot your line, point it and go.

Up front, you have a 150mm Fox 34 Rhythm suspension fork which is lightweight with infinitely adjustable compression. This is a fork which is more than capable on trails and even enduro style riding. The one-by Shimano SLX drivetrain has a 510% gear range and the internally routed cables produce clean lines on the frame.

The Trance 2 combines excellent climbing efficiency with confident descending ability which allows it, as a mid-travel bike, to do-it-all.

Mountain Bike Sizing Guide

Mountain Bikes tend to use the T-Shirt sizing of S, M, L etc. or will have the seat tube measurement in INCHES. Why mountain bikes are inches and road bikes are CM who knows, but the part of the frame being measured is the same.

As a rule of thumb if you can identify your size as Medium on one brand, you should use that as a starting point on another brand too.

If you already own a medium mountain bike for example and are comfortable with the sizing, start there.

What is your height? Your suggested bicycle size
Feet/Inches Centimetres Suggested Size
4'10" - 5'2" 148cm - 158cm X-Small (14-15")
5'2" - 5'6" 158cm - 168cm Small (15.5-17")
5'6" - 5'10" 168cm - 178cm Medium (17.5-18")
5'10" - 6'1" 178cm - 185cm Large (18.5-20")
6'1" - 6'4" 185cm - 193cm X-Large (20.5-22")
6'4" - 6'6" 193cm - 198cm XX-Large (22.5"+)

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
