Giant was founded in 1972 with a mission to create better bikes and improve the cycling experience. They committed themselves to innovation and mastery of manufacturing and their ability to produce high-quality bikes at an affordable price allowed for more riders to experience they joy of cycling.
Giant were the first to produce an affordable carbon fibre bike (anyone remember the Cadex 980c? Let us know in the comments!) and their Compact Road Design revolutionised the world of high-performance road bikes. Giant’s Maestro Suspension design also took off-road performance to new heights.
Over the last 4 decades Giant has become a name synonymous with cycling, and their bikes have won world championships, design awards and most importantly the hearts of riders worldwide!
With the addition of Liv bikes (Giant’s female focused sister company – more info further down), Giant really do cater for all riders and disciplines and aim to be your trusted friend on every ride.
