First Look: 2022 Giant Trance X Advanced E+

Nov 24, 2021
by Mike Kazimer  
Giant Trance X Advanced E

The 2022 Trance X Advanced E+ is the newest addition to Giant's electric lineup, with 29” wheels, a carbon frame, and 140mm of rear wheel travel. It also has Yamaha's new SyncDrive Pro motor, which is lighter and smaller than the previous version, and now delivers 85Nm of torque (5Nm more than before).

All of the models in the Trance X E+ lineup are equipped with 625 Wh batteries, and there's an optional 250 Wh range extender available that bolts on top of the downtube to increase the bike's run time. Switching between the motor's five modes (Power, Sport, Active, Basic, or Eco) is done via a remote that can be positioned on either side of the handlebar. There's also the option to enable SmartAssist, which automatically determines the amount of pedalling support to provide based on input from six sensors.
Details

• Wheel size: 29"
• Travel: 140mm rear, 150mm fork
• Carbon frame
• 65.8º or 66.5º head angle
• Motor: Yamaha SyncDrive Pro, 85Nm torque
625 Wh battery, optional 250Wh range extender compatible
• Sizes: S-XL
• Price: $6,800 - $9,300 USD

The Trance X's geometry reflects its trail-oriented intentions. With a 150mm fork the head angle sits at 65.8-degrees in the low position, and the seat angle measures 76-degrees. Reach measurements range from 439mm on a size small all the way up to 510mm on an XL. Even with the smaller motor the chainstay lengths are on the longer side of the spectrum, coming in at 473mm for all sizes. A flip chip on the seatstays makes it possible to adjust the head angle by .7-degrees, a change that also alters the bottom bracket height by 10mm.

Spec Notes

It's interesting to see that two of the three models use Fox's Live Valve suspension, which automatically changes the fork and shock's compression settings to adapt to the terrain. Personally, I've found that I'm much less concerned with how efficient a bike feels when it has a motor attached to it, but maybe that's just me. It's also curious that there aren't currently any Live Valve versions of the longer travel Reign E+. If anything, that's where a system that automatically firms up the suspension seems like it would makes the most sense.

Another spec choice that stands out is the decision to go with lighter casing tires. Typically, e-bikes receive heavier duty tires than their non-motorized counterparts due to the higher weight of the bike. That extra heft means that riders are often smashing into obstacles faster and harder than they would on a 'regular' bike, making punctures and pinch flats more likely if measures aren't taken to prevent them. Plus, when there's a motor added to the equation the extra grams those meaty tires add isn't really anything to worry about. In any case, if the spec sheet is correct those lighter tires are something to keep in mind.

 For some people e-bikes have enough appeal to fork over the equivalent price of a proper dirt bike (or piano).

Sometimes my dog vomits, eats it, and then vomits again and sniffs that with interest.

 @mattsavage:
The Tenere also has 10x the moving parts, and Yamaha has to pay organizations like the EPA a hefty fee in every country the bike is sold for the privilege to sell the bike. MTB's are overpriced because it's a preppy sport and people pay way too much to be brand whores, or to be seen on new technologies.
  • 32 17
 Note to Giant: we're not looking for more power. We're looking for an e-mtb that rides more like a real bike. Orbea's Rise and Spesh SLs are good examples. Most riders I know that have had full power e-mtbs have graduated to low power, lighter bikes, myself included. Giant is going in the wrong direction.
  • 35 8
 If it's lighter and has less power, why not just ride a regular bike? What's the point?
  • 13 4
 Me, I don’t understand the SL’s and the Rises of this emerging market. Genuinely curious if those seeking lighter weight eMTBs have had any experience on 1) full-power ebikes and 2) dirt bikes. I’d predict it’s a ‘no’ on both counts. Not that one is better… just interested if there is correlation. There is probably some correlation with where one lives. Here in the PNW, a “Lite” eMTB would give up the ghost before me. I want more power and more range.
  • 6 3
 @slumgullion: why not both? I bought the Levo sl last year after hating on and test riding a few full size e-mtbs. Having a "little" assist to get you to the top is the sweet spot when it feels like a normal bike on the downs imo. I bought it with trail work in mind, but basically stopped riding my old bike since. Sadly the waistline has paid for it as much as the wallet but i still wouldn't go back.
  • 11 2
 @sngltrkmnd: I have dirt bikes and test ride full power e-mtbs and the sl was what fit my wants. I would argue the opposite. If you want more power and range why not just stick to dirt bikes. They're basically cheaper at this point.
  • 9 0
 @sngltrkmnd: Wife has pull power Levo.. its just overkill, not need for that much power. Got the Levo SL and likes it much better as it feels more like a normal bike 38 lbs vs 52+ I would guess. Less power, about the same range and option for range extender..
  • 7 2
 @sngltrkmnd: For me it was simple. A full fat feels like a runaway school bus on the downs. SL gives just enough to take the edge off so I can get in another few laps, always trying to use eco or entirely off as much as possible, then a normal bike on the downs. Rode both the full Levo and Kenevo, then got on an SL right after they came out, and saw the light. For me, anyway.

However, I don’t actually own an ebike yet. My time on them has been on my west coast trips and business trips with a certain manufacturer. Getting in twice the laps in Demo is fantastic. Back home in NE I worry any ebike might quickly make things boring, not enough vert. Well, except maybe for North Conway. I could have some serious fun not needing to do vehicle shuttles at Hurricane.
  • 7 4
 Because Orbea Rise is a fraud and SL is too weak.
Rise has regular (let's say heavy) motor with limiter so you don't get to enjoy power and drain small battery fast.
They saved weight on extra small battery and flimsy components.

Levo SL at least has significantly lighter motor but still, I'm currently building Levo Expert carbon (gen2) and it will weigh 19kg which is very close to similarly speced Rise and bit heavier than the SL which is expected since the frame weighs almost the same (2.8kg for size XL) and 500wh battery is around 3.2kg with motor coming at about 2.9kg.

Can you really say 1-2kg more is going to be detrimental to the handling while having 50-200% more power and 50% battery with option of having 100% more with 700wh battery?
  • 6 1
 I ride Acoustic bikes and Ebikes. Used to own a 54lb Decoy but now have a Orbea Rise set up mullet, 162 rear, 170 fork, 64deg HT, Coil rear end, and 40lbs. Feels very close to a normal bike, 60Nm on a light bike feels like 70Nm on a Heavy bike. 360wh battery but can add a 252wh range extender for 612wh. It adds a bit over 3lbs to the bike however but those long 6000-8000’ rides are rare. Most rides under 4500’ you do with the standard battery.

 @sngltrkmnd: I think it's about location and also what type of riding you want it for? I've been looking at them for self-shuttling at UK bike parks (which tend to have fire-roads back up to the top); I want to save my legs for the downhills and get lots of laps in to justify the time spent driving there in the first place. The uplifts are great, but not all UK spots have them and then you tend to do full laps rather than sessioning smaller sections.

Ultimately I'm trying to improve my riding skills for a normal MTB, so I want something that rides as similarly as possible to a normal enduro bike, so the half-fat approach would work for me (I think).

I had a 30 second ride on a Rise the other day, it was surprisingly powerful uphill and didn't feel awful to bunnyhop.
  • 4 0
 @sngltrkmnd: I had a Turbo Levo and it was amazing (when it wasn't broken) it was like riding a trials bike with pedals but it felt pretty far removed from normal biking. I realised I don't really want 4 x the power up a hill and a bit of a pig on the downs. I've demoed the Kenevo SL and it's much more like an assisted enduro bike, there's enough power to help but it still feels like I'm riding a bike rather than adding a tiny bit of effort to a motor. Everyone's situation is different though, most of the climbs around here are less than an hour on a real bike.
  • 7 0
 What I take from some of these comments is "somebody make us a cheaper version of the Kenevo SL already"!

(and also, Shimano and Bosch, please develop a lighter half-fat motor)

 The biggest reason I've heard from people buying ebikes is to get big mile / big vertical days in. They're either seeking self shuttle or big mountain adventuring, staying on their acoustic bike for rides of less than a couple hours . While I think the "almost as light as a regular" market exists, has merit and appeals to some, it doesn't seem to be the biggest part of the market in my region. Maybe this is regional based on terrain, types of back-country access or a reflection of the maturity of the ebike market in that region...

 @sngltrkmnd: I come from a dirt bike background but that was thirty years ago. After riding traditional mtb's for 25 years I picked up a Commencal Meta Power 29 this summer. That bike is an absolute game changer but it is not very playful. It rips downhill and I am convinced that the extra weight is somewhat responsible for that, however I would also like to feel more comfortable in the air with it. Suffice it to say, I keep the bike pretty close to the ground. So yeah, a full power, long-travel emtb that weighs like 40lbs. would be my dream bike.
  • 4 2
 Speak for yourself: I went from a Levo SL to a Trek Rail because I wanted to be able to cover more ground in the very short amount of time I have to ride. There’s a place for both lightweight, low power ebikes and heavier, full power ebikes.

 @FoesKnows: to be clear...i have many vices that regular bike riding kept in check in this sense and i could (should) just eliminate. I still certainly get a work out, especially with the smaller motor, just not enough for the amount of consumption I'm inclined to. That said I'm not that fussed about it and think in general people need to get over themselves appearance wise anyways.

 @lostlunchbox: Don’t mind him, he’s one of the local loons. I love messing with him though. :-D

Hey did you watch the Kendall-Weed piece on the Rise he just posted? Interesting take that the more consistent yet lower heart rate with an E actually burns more calories. That would track with a lot of the science on the subject. The SL and mission control app actually lets you set a target heart rate and the bike will provide or reduce boost to keep you in that zone. Not sure if Orbea has something similar, but you could just get good chest band sensor and taylor your favorite ride yourself. Still way more fun than Zwift or road biking. Or just push the plates away? (I kid!) Wink
  • 19 4
 Looks like this rich little fat kid. I occasionally ride an e-bike and I don't need a bigger battery and a more powerful battery, I need more travel, something lighter and more playful.

  • 8 2
 You ridden a bike with really long chainstays like that? It's actually pretty awesome if you're tall. Sucks to manual (which affects about 2 seconds of my average lap), but great for cornering grip.
  • 4 0
 This bike has a purpose in mind. Without long chainstays it will not climb as well. Electric motor+legs+special geometry will give you absolutely amazing climbing capabilities. 473 seems a lot though. And it will make this bike not as versatile as it could have been. It would be great to have an option to flip a switch and make it a bit shorter. I rode 455mm emtb this year for couple of months and it was long enough to climb stupid things and short enough to manual. Though manualling wasn't a pleasure like on shorter bike.
  • 3 0
 @Socket: I'm not very tall and the Giant's geo (long-ass chainstays in particular) made for a very un-fun riding experience. Coming from BMX and 4X the Giant's geo just felt horrible. The Trek Rail and Kenevo by comparison felt much better.

 A 140 ebike makes even less sense than a 140mm pedalbike.

 So.. Any sense you wish? 140 for me at least is a really nice sweet spot for a "do it all" bike.
Agree tho that if you're going motorized you could as well just go for more travel as the drawbacks are very small.

 I got a chance to demo the Trance X E+ 2, the three things I will say about this eMTB is the Yamaha PW-X3 motor is smooth, powerful and quiet! (No CX-P or EP8 Clunking Noise). The suspension has a great feel to it for a rear140mm - front150mm eMTB it is plush, I did a couple of 5 foot drops and it just soaked up the landings with no issues. For a 29er it handles great, was nibble in the tight stuff, but stable on the high speed sections of the trail. Giant/Yamaha did their homework this thing rips.
  • 13 5
 Never thought I would see Yamaha moto in a bike forum, but then again I never thought I would see a rollerblader go down a bike trail (Bobsled) or a dad take his kid down the same trail in a kid trailer attached to his dual suspension bike.

 Does the range extender actually go on top of the downtube as the article mentions? It seems a bit inconvenient to remove whatever they have bolted to the bottle mount just when they plan to go on a longer ride. Instead, it seems like there are some brackets under the downtube. Wouldn't these hold the extra battery down there?
  • 5 0
 Having a battery hanging underneath the bottom of the bike wouldn't really be the best idea. When it's installed the range extender looks something like this: www.pinkbike.com/photo/21691927.
  • 1 0
 @mikekazimer: What are the downsides of having it under the downtube? Seems to me like as long as there is room for the tire as the fork compresses, you'll be good. Or are there other reasons to not have it down there?
  • 1 0
 @Beaconbike: Yeah probably depends on the design and the mounting method which configuration is most likely to collect dirt and moist in critical places (the electrical and mechanical connectors). Mike links to a picture of the battery inside the front triangle so that's likely how it works. However, the Giant website I just checked doesn't mention that particular battery to be compatible with the Trance bike. Could be that it still is. Just seems to me that, provided they can preserve the function and durability of the connectors, it is more convenient for potential buyers to just keep their wares (bottle mount, pump etc) to these mounts rather than having to take them off and find an other solution on longer rides where they need the extra battery.

 Literally every bike shop owner I talked to said that the most reliable motors on the market are Yamaha. Even the shops who don't sell any Yamaha equipped bikes. I got the 2021 Trance E2. The long chainstay makes it a beast at climbs, but the whole geometry feels kinda unbalanced. Giant reprogrammed the Yamaha motor. The Eco mode feels very powerful to me. In summer I got 150km of range including over 2000hm out of 1 charge multiple times. Mostly on Eco.
