With more and more manufacturers releasing their new products for the 2015 season, Giant wanted a piece of the action. Highlights of their new 2015 range are the updated Trance models as well as the new Anthem SX and the new Reign enduro bike.

The Giant Reign was redesigned for 2015 and will replace the Trance SX Advance models in the enduro sector (the Trance SX will still be available). Until now the Reign was still on 26″ wheels, but now – who had guessed it? – it gets 27.5″ wheels. In combination with 160 millimeters of travel in the front and rear, the new Reign aims to be the number one choice for ever trail.

The well-proven Maestro System get’s a small update: The wider linkage-plates are now on the outside, increasing the stiffness. Also, the upper pivot point now has ball-bearings, making maintenance easier and the suspension more responsive.

Internal cable routing creates a clean look, especially the carbon frames (Advanced models) look neat. The Reign 2015 will have an ISCG05 mount.
