Hello, so I am looking at two bikes to upgrade to an enduro bike. I have a giant reign advanced 1 2015 with full Shimano XT groupset(upgraded from SLX), front carbon triangle, Rockshox pike and monarch plus. The other bike is a giant reign 2 2018 with a lower tier of components, full aluminum, Rockshox yari and monarch. All your feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I have the reign 2 2018 and I really like it. I cant comment on how it compares to the old reign but it feels fantastic on everything from tech to jumps. Really like the bike. suspension isnt super plush due to the low end dampers but its not a huge issue. id say go for it!

You can upgrade the damper in the yari fork really easy and it's not expensive. I have just done it (and put a 170MM air spring too), this way you have a lyric fork. Cost me $350 australian so thats like $245 american.

You already have 2 enduro bikes, one with better and other slightly lower components. Not sure what you want to achieve, be more specific. Is suspension not working well? Are brakes too weak?
With questions like that we can help you more...

No, I just wrote it incorrectly, I have one trail bike but I’m looking to upgrade to an enduro bike and those are the two options I am looking into.

Its more clear now... take 2018, you can upgrade later some components (maybe brakes for some 4-pot ones) if they don't suit you (Yari/monarch combo is very decent these days for average joe :-). If/when you will be selling you will sell it much easier than 2015 bike. Plus you have all the latest/greatest popular standards on bike already (Trunion shock mount, boost hubs etc...) which will make it easier to upgrade in years to come.

Just in case anyone was wondering, 26+ Minions fit the 2014 reign x perfectly on stock wheels. I just mounted a pair of 26x2.8 and rode them for the first time today.
