Giant Bicycles wrapped up their 2011 Summit dealer launch in Whistler BC, just before Crankworx kicked off. We got the chance to get some shots of the 2011 lineup, and included in this was the revamped Giant Reign 0. Here is a quick overview...Check inside for more info on the 2011 Giant Reign 0...
For 2011 the Giant Reign 0 went through some very beneficial changes. Giant equipped the bike for 2011 with a tapered headtube for substantially increased front end stiffness. They have also incorporated a press fit bb system into their bike, as well as post mount style brake mounts. This eliminates the need for an additional adapter, and dropping the overall weight of the bike. Cockpit duties are handled by the new Giant Contact bar and stem, and the near bottomless Maestro suspension system is as supple as ever. Maestro technology is the full suspension platform that every Giant performance mountain bike utilizes.
Canadian price on the 2011 Giant Reign 0 is $4499, Giant offers the Reign starting at $2249.
