2015 Giant Reign Advanced 27.5 And Reign 27.5 Preview

The concept that Giant were going to introduce a 27.5" wheeled all-mountain/enduro bike has been on the cards for a while now... it's omission in the 2014 range was noticed, even with the inclusion of the excellent 2014 Giant Trance SX.

It's been noted that Giant sponsored riders had been spotted on prototype bikes that were clearly not Trance frames... rumours started that these were the missing bike and soon it was revealed that factory sponsored enduro riders were competing on prototype 27.5" wheeled Giant Reign bikes.

Now the official word is out and the 2015 Giant Reign range has been revealed, there is a carbon framed Reign Advanced 27.5 and alloy framed Reign 27.5.



The number of models for the Reign Advanced 27.5 and Reign 27.5 will vary from market to market, but both models will be available in small, medium and large frame sizes.
