The path to the podium is long, dirty, and rocky; luckily, Giant's XTC Advanced SL 27.5 1 is designed exactly for those conditions. An OverDrive steerer flows into the MegaDrive down tube, which in turn attaches to a massive bottom bracket to deliver laser-sharp handling and explosive acceleration. Add to that the speed and control of 27.5-inch P-XCR1 composite wheels, and you can see why your competition sees the XTC as an unfair advantage. Continuing with more top end, the XTC is equipped with a 100mm RockShox SID RL fork and a SRAM X01 1x11 drivetrain with Avid Guide RS brakes for for the ultimate in riding performance. More of the go-fast bits are represented with a carbon bar and seatpost. With Giant's XTC Advanced SL 27.5 1, the path is clear.
