The new Demo 29 comes roaring out of the gates with multiple World Cup wins already under its belt. New chassis, new suspension kinematics, new geometry, and, yeah, new wheel size. We’ve hung the Race model with the best gravity kit available. Full gas. Full fast. SMOOTH AND CONTROLLED The new Demo 29 is blazing fast on tough tracks thanks to an axle path that reduces rear wheel hang up. And during moments when you do need to grab the brakes, the Demo 29 stays planted—with plenty of traction—we’ve added just the right amount of anti-rise to the mix. FAST ON THE GAS When every second counts, every pedal stroke counts. The Demo 29’s new design allows for just the right amount of anti-squat. Or to put a finer point on it, you crank on the pedals and the Demo 29 rips forward instead of bobbing around uncontrollably and slowing you down. - M5 alloy construction works in harmony with our Style-Specific DH Geometry to create the ultimate race machine. The design is compact in order to increase maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking big hits in stride. And to fill out all of the details that make the difference on race day, we’ve included an ISCG ‘05 mount for chain guides and all the bits to make it easy to work on. - Custom Ohlins TTX Trunnion rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high-/low-speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It has 200mm of coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find it anywhere else. - The Ohlins DH 29 fork features a Twin-Tube design, an air spring with an adjustable third chamber, adjustable high-/low-speed compression and rebound, and 200mm of trail-taming travel.
If you don't know the Demo, it's time you get acquainted. Think of it as a two-wheeled, dirt-eating Mario Andretti—it just wants to go fast. And this year, the Demo Expert 29 adds a new limb to the Demo family tree with an entirely new design that makes railing corners and casting flotation spells over rock gardens easier than ever. It has a ground-up new frame, improved kinematics, better suspension under braking, bigger wheels, and all the newest fancy bits that make this the fastest Demo we've ever made. Yeah, we say that every time, but the race clock doesn’t lie. For the Demo Expert spec, we've hit the perfect balance of durability, light weight, and reliability. You're going to find a SRAM GX drivetrain, powerful SRAM Code R 4-piston brakes, a RockShox Super Deluxe RC World Cup rear shock, a BoXXer RC 29 fork, and our Butcher tires with an all-new BLCK DMND casing that rolls fast and is ready for a ton of abuse. - M5 alloy construction works in harmony with our Style-Specific DH Geometry to create the ultimate race machine.

You supply the guts, Giant supplies the Glory. Their Glory Advanced 27.5 1 has a crazy-light, super-stiff Advanced-grade composite front triangle, ALUXX SL aluminum rear swingarm, and 8-inches of terrain-crushing Maestro suspension to get you down the mountain faster than ever. Even the ugliest drops and chunkiest rock sections will feel like they're pulling punches with the 200mm trail-chewing travel of the RockShox Boxxer RC fork and the Vivid R2C coil shock damping the blows. Aggressive, World Cup-proven long and low geometry ekes out top speeds on even the most demanding downhill courses, allowing you to devour the most insane tracks. As the tapered Overdrive head tube steers you through your line with pinpoint precision, the durable, fast-spinning 27.5-inch Giant wheels with Schwalbe rubber may convince you they're magnetically drawn to the base of the mountain. Before you get there, though, a few sharp pedal strokes might be required, so a SRAM 1x10 DH-specific drivetrain with a TruVativ Descendent crank delivers. MRP's G3 chainguide keeps your chain locked down, while the SRAM X7 shifter dictates appropriately stepped gear changes to the X9 derailleur. In the moment between pulling the brake levers and the solid SRAM Guide R discs throwing down heaps of power at the bottom of the lift, you'll have just enough time to glance back up the mountain and think about your next run.
