First Look: All-New Giant Stance 29er Trail Bike

With FlexPoint suspension and a new aluminum frame that’s specifically designed for 29er wheels, Stance 29 is a smart choice for aspiring trail riders.


Giant, the world leader in cycling technology, is introducing a new full-suspension trail bike with progressive 29er geometry and proven technologies that make it a smart choice for trail riders seeking performance and value. The Stance 29, with an ALUXX aluminum frame and FlexPoint rear suspension, delivers greater control, faster speeds, and smooth-riding confidence on a variety of terrain. First introduced in 2015 as a highly capable full-suspension choice for aspiring XC and trail riders, the Stance range has gained a following for its high-value off-road performance and versatility. The original Stance marked the debut of FlexPoint suspension, a single-pivot setup that offers reliable, active rear suspension to trail riders looking to boost their skills and speed on rugged terrain.

With its FlexPoint suspension, purpose-built 29er geometry and tubeless tire setup, the new Stance 29 feasts on technical climbs.


The all-new Stance 29 features progressive frame geometry that’s optimized for larger diameter wheels. The FlexPoint suspension system provides 120mm of rear wheel travel, and new “long and low” geometry includes a 67.5-degree headtube angle and 75-degree seattube angle—a combination that optimizes the roll-over capabilities and momentum of the bike’s 29-inch wheels. The new frame is also designed around a 130mm suspension fork for added control on technical trails, and all models in the Stance 29 series feature Giant WheelSystems and tires with tubeless technology right out of the box.


With its smooth-riding suspension, high-volume tires and Giant Contact Switch dropper seatpost, the Stance 29 1 is at home on rough, rocky terrain. Using the flexing elements of the rear chainstay and seatstay, FlexPoint suspension eliminates complex pivots and linkages to provide an effective, lightweight and durable suspension system that’s easy to maintain.

All Stance 29 models feature Giant Contact saddles to provide comfort and support on off-road terrain.


The Stance 29 2 is available in a choice of black or red. Stock lands in South Africa in mid-August. Note: the Red version is scheduled to arrive in December.
