Product Description

Flying up the climbs and floating over the rough stuff, the Giant Trance is made to put a smile on your face. Trail specific geometry and 140mm of active suspension mean that this mountain bike is the perfect tool for trail centre adventures.

Light and stiff the ALUXX SL aluminium frame is specifically designed to make the most of the performance benefits offered by 27.5" wheels. The Maestro suspension remains fully active - even when pedaling or braking - without compromising efficiency. So whether you are taking on a technical climb, pinning it through rocky section or braking into a tight turn you can be sure that the new 2015 Trance will handle the hits and keep the rear wheel tracking.

Stable handling up front is ensured with the SR Suntour Epicon fork and steering is precise and predictable.

Shimano hydraulic disk brakes work efficiently in all conditions giving you the confidence to hit the trails even in the depth of a British winter. Shimano also take care of the 27 speed drivetrain delivering crisp shifting with a full gear range which will encourage you to take on even the steepest of climbs.

Bike Weight - 14.35kg (L frame , no pedals)

Waste of money

So far I've done 5 miles of riding, all through forestry. Freehub is already extremely noisy. Both wheels are buckled despite such little work. Front brake pipe rubs the spokes and I've had to zip tye it to the front fork. Gears are already playing up. No 4th or 5th gear! Stay well away from this bike!

Amazing bike for money, just a couple of strange choices in build.

I'm initially very impressed with the trance 4, rides amazingly well when I set it up for me/my style. Not really sure why giant chose the forks they did but so far they haven't given me any reason not too! Service from tredz has been great. Had a slight issue with a missing product with the delivery but one phone call and it was in the post the same day! Overall for 1300 for a well built top end of entry level trail bike you can't go wrong with the trance 27.5 4

Bike is great tredz not so!

Bike came fully assembled, but gears where out so got them adjusted which was fine and 2 be expected. My problem is tht the rear brake makes and awful sound when pulled so I took it 2 the bike shop at my local trails and the said the pads nd disk were contaminated with grease or oil making the slip and screech. It needs new pads or take the current ones out and sand them down and the disk 2 removed the oil. Not to much trouble, but the fact tredz have blanked me since taking my money I'm not happy at all!

great bike

I've now used this at a few trail centres and am really pleased. I was also very happy with how it came delivered from tredz , I hardly had to do anything to set the bike up. For the amount of travel it still goes up hill well.

Superb bike

All I can say about this bike is it rolls over everything with ease and gives you the best confidence when charging down single track is concerned. I've owned nothing but Specialised for last 3 years but this Giant is just tuned in for trail destruction. I've spent the last 2 weekends at Coed Llandegla and the Clwydian range and cannot rate this bike enough. Also thanks to Tredz , 2nd bike I've bought from them and the build is perfect , gears change bang on and bike came 1 day earlier than expected. Cheers guys and I hope this review is useful.

Beast of a bike

My favourite bike ever first full suspension but great ride smooth comfortable suspension works a treat and quick smooth gear changes. Ride position on bike is spot on beautiful to look at and built with great components. Best £1300 i ever spent you wont be disappointed.
