    Summary

    Expirience with the Giant Trance 1

    Giant Trance 1 Review A classic among trail bikes. The Maestro rear end feels extremely plush on the trail. You have no idea if you prefer high speed stability or playful handling? Then you can´t go wrong with the Trance 1. It´s handling is pleasantly balanced. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Giant Trance 1 wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. With a total weight of 14,5 kg, the Trance 1 is one of the heavier Trailbike that you get for under under 4500 Euro. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 25 years warranty Giant sets the bar high!
