2019 Giant Trance 29er
Ready to get rowdy – The perfect “XC” Bike for Guatemala
I have been personally riding the new Giant Trance 29er in Peru for the past 6 months and can vouch for the bikes versatility on the ups as well as the downs. An interesting “trail” bike – which has surprisingly progressive geometry with a long reach, slack headtube and modern 44mm fork offset. The Giant Trance is more than at home on steep descents without sacrificing excellent climbing ability.
Although it shares the same name, the Trance 29er really is a completely different bike than the original Trance – with less travel, and a slacker head tube angle (66.5°). The Trance 29er has 115mm of rear wheel travel (paired to a 130mm suspension fork). And the Trance 27.5 uses 140mm of rear wheel travel (paired to 150mm of suspension).

Trail / Enduro Machine
The 27.5 trance is a great all around bike well spec’d, with an emphasis on durability. The 2019 Giant Trance 2 has been updated with a carbon rocker – and fox suspension with 150mm of travel in front and 140mm in the rear.
Over the years – the Giant Trance has proven itself as the perfect trail bike for Guatemala – and a staple of our rental fleet. All our Trance 2’s come stock with 30mm rims – 2.5″ Tires – Shimano 4 cylinder hydraulic brakes and dropper posts.
