Trance X 2 (2024)


SKU: 302225

Find your flow on technical trails. With adjustable geometry, the option to change rear wheel size, and a new 140mm Maestro rear suspension setup, this versatile trail bike steamrolls singletrack with confidence and control.

Key Performance Factors

Updated suspension
A new Maestro rear suspension system gives trail riders 140mm of rear travel. The trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm combine for a longer stroke that has a smooth, active feel, plus greater stiffness in the chassis for precision control. The rear suspension is paired with a 150mm travel fork, providing superior confidence and control on technical singletrack.

Adjustable trail geometry
A three-position Maestro flip chip lets riders dial in frame geometry for their riding style and terrain. The high setting adds more ground clearance, a good option for tight, technical terrain. In the low setting, the head tube gets slacker and the bottom bracket drops, ideal for confident handling at higher speeds. The middle position is neutral. In addition, a new headset flip chip adjusts reach so that riders can easily achieve their preferred positioning.

Rear wheel options
All models come with 29-inch front and rear wheels, but the flip chip lets you opt for a mixed wheel setup including a 27.5 rear. The stock 29-inch rear wheel optimizes stability and roll-over capabilities, while a 27.5 delivers a more agile, snappier feel and more saddle-to-tire clearance in the rear. Some riders favor this “mullet” setup for riding steep, technical terrain.


The all-new frameset is engineered with a super strong and lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum chassis and updated Maestro suspension system. With 140mm of rear travel and a 150mm fork, it gobbles up rocks, roots and ruts with ease. The frame is equipped with two, three-position flip chips for the ultimate in adjustability. The rear flip chip, located on the Maestro rocker arm, lets you change frame geometry and switch the standard 29-inch rear wheel to 27.5 if you prefer. A second flip chip at the headset provides 10mm of reach adjustment. New, integrated frame storage inside the down tube makes it easy to carry tools, snacks and other essentials. Mounts below the top tube offer an additional option for storage, and protection on the down tube prevents damage from trail debris and transportation.

Aluxx SL Aluminum
This high-performance, state-of-the-art aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. The frameset features advanced welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.

Maestro Suspension
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages all work together to create a single floating pivot for the most active, efficient and independent suspension system.

Advanced Forged Composite
A high-pressure molding process is used to produce a complex shaped carbon-fiber upper rocker arm that is lighter, stiffer and stronger than an aluminum version.

Adjustable Frame Geometry
Flip chip adjustability lets you switch between two settings depending on the terrain you are riding. You can select a 64.4, 64.8 or 65.1-degree head angle and corresponding 76.8, 77.2 or 77.5-degree seat tube angle, resulting in a 40, 35 or 30mm bottom bracket drop (size medium).

Reach Adjust
Three-position flip chip at the headset lets riders dial in cockpit dimensions and geometry. This modular system helps fine tune the bike’s handling and rider position using two positioning chips that can be removed and swapped to achieve a Short (-5mm), Mid (0mm) or Long (+5mm) reach.

Rear Wheel Options
Riders can choose either a 29- or 27.5-inch rear wheel, paired with a 29-inch front wheel. The larger 29-inch option improves stability and roll-over capabilities, while the 27.5 option delivers a more agile, snappier feel. It’s a quick and easy way to adjust the bike’s handling and feel.

Frame Storage
New integrated frame storage inside the down tube makes it easy to carry tools, snacks and other essentials. Mounts below the top tube offer an additional option for storage.

A massively oversized bottom bracket area features a fully integrated, 92mm wide design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and increased stability on the non-driveside.

Integrated Frame Protection
The driveside chainstay and down tube feature more robust protection against rocks and other trail debris compared to the previous generation.

Boost Technology
Wider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.

Giant Tubeless System
Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.

Weight The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
