2017 Giant Reign 2

When the trail gets rough, reign stays smooth. Experience performance to push harder and confidence to go faster on Giant's Reign 2. Bolstered by 160mm of smooth and active Maestro rear suspension travel, a lightweight yet stiff ALUXX SL aluminum frameset, and 27.5 wheel technology, the Reign gives you the confidence to tackle aggressive terrain. It’s smooth enough to fly down sketchy descents and efficient enough to scoot up steep climbs with less effort. Stable geometry, a tapered OverDrive steerer tube design, and air or oil shock-compatible shock mounts help make Reign a great choice for rowdy trail riding and enduro racing.

    Comments:

    This may be the all in one bike everyone is looking for. It climbs flawlessly without loss of power or traction and decends like a Cadillac - so smooth. I would not consider this a race bike as it is a bit too heavy, but with some lighter wheels and some other light weight goodies, who knows? Can't beat this bike for the price. Buy one, you won't regret it.

      Comments:

      I have only ridden this bike a couple times so far but I am impressed. The main thing I noticed was how well balanced it is and how easy it is to correct while riding a skinny or similar. Just riding this bike has increased my confidence over obstacles which I wouldn't have even tried before. Brakes are good so far. I haven't dialed the bike in completely yet. However I am very impressed so far.

      Comments:

      I have had this bike for a few months.It's a weapon when going downhill and just takes all that I can throw at it. SRAM X.7 shifting is spot on and reliable in the toughest of situations. I'm not a fan of the Shimano SLX front derailleur but it works. The Bomber Fork has plenty of length to negotiate the good stuff and the Fox shock is great on climbs. The color is much more vibrant in real life. It is a bit heavy but when riding it's very well balanced.I wouldn't recommend for casual cyclist just because there are many lighter and more friendly bikes for that market; however if you want to Reign then this could be for you!
