Vikt The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.

Giant Overdrive 2/Overdrive
As the first manufacturer to bring the tapered headtube to market—with the 2006 Glory mountain bike—Giant knows a thing or two about inventing solutions for improved steering precision. The original OverDrive technology resulted in groundbreaking stiffness-to-weight ratios, and the newer OverDrive 2 system on high-performance road and mountain bikes offers even further advantages.
Giant Overdrive 2
Giant’s most advanced fork steerer-tube technology. Oversized headset bearings (1 1/4-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings) and a tapered steerer tube combine for unprecedented steering performance with no additional weight.
>1 1/4-inch top bearing
>1 ½-inch bottom bearing
>1 1/4 –inch stem
>Custom OverDrive 2 expansion wedge
Compared to the already stiff OverDrive system, OverDrive 2 provides up to 30 percent more torsional steering stiffness. This translates into industry-leading steering precision. Whether you’re sprinting for the finish or cornering hard in the most demanding conditions, you can ride with more power and confidence.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer-tube technology. Designed to provide solid front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube provide optimal steering stiffness. Road models feature 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/4-inch bottom bearings, while the mountain version features 1 1/8-inch top and 1 1/2-inch bottom bearings.
OverDrive provides up to 15 percent more torsional steering stiffness than straight steerer-tube designs. This translates into much more accurate steering input from a rider’s hands, through the handlebar and stem, and down to the front wheel. Whether hammering uphill or carving through a corner, OverDrive transmits input directly to the front wheel for more precise handling.
Giant AeroSystem shaping technology
Through CFD and wind-tunnel data, engineers optimize each tube shape to deliver superior aerodynamic performance.
Unrivaled Composite technology
With more than 25 years of experience in carbon fiber engineering, plus a long history of rigorous development and testing with professional athletes, Giant is the industry leader in composite bicycle technology. To meet the needs of high-performance riders, Giant offers two grades: Advanced SL and Advanced Composite. Both feature unique materials, resin formulas and construction techniques.
Giant Advanced Composite technology
Giant's High Performance-grade raw carbon fiber is used to produce custom composite material in our own composite factory. Extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant, these handcrafted frames feature the following materials and processes:
>High Performance-grade raw carbon material features an excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio.
>High Performance formula provides excellent void minimization (bubbles) while maintaining outstanding strength. And vibration absorbing particles are added to help disperse road shock.
>The front triangle (downtube, headtube, toptube, seattube) is assembled and molded as one continuous piece. The Modified Monocoque Construction. This front half is then joined to the rear chainstays and seatstays in a secondary process. This process eliminates the outermost woven composite sheet to reduce weight without affecting ride quality, strength or stiffness.
Giant 3F: Fit, Form, Function
