pioneering the

process Meta Composite is Giant’s proprietary composite technology, developed to achieve a superior balance between the three things serious riders hold in the highest regard: stiffness, light weight and ride quality. It’s a difficult juggling act to keep these three elements in perfect harmony. Get it wrong and you’ll end up with a bike that’s too flexy, too harsh, or too heavy. Get it right, and you’ll have a bike that accelerates like a rocket, efficiently transfers energy and soaks up performance-robbing vibration for all-day comfort.

What makes Meta Composite stand out from the other “me-too” composite technologies currently on the market is that Giant - and Giant alone - controls the entire process start to finish, from the countless field-testing hours, to the meticulous engineering conducted by Giant’s own engineering staff, to the hand lay-up of composite frames at the Giant C-Tech factory. Giant is proud that it can pass Meta Composite on to the rider who demands a lighter, laterally stiffer and more vertically compliant ride from their bicycle.

It’s these improvements that enable Giant to craft the best-performing composite bicycles on and off the road. Meta Composite’s superior performance begins with bare carbon thread and ends in an entirely handmade frame constructed of strategically layered, Uni-Directional (UD) carbon. At Giant, this combination of painstaking process and a proprietary material selection is more than just materials and technology - it’s a promise of superior quality and performance that no other major brand can make. That’s the Meta Composite promise.

In a world flooded with composite technology, Giant’s legendary Meta Composite process stands alone. Born over eighteen years ago in Giant’s own Taiwan-based “Techno Centre” engineering lab, Meta Composite continues to improve through Giant’s exhaustive materials research, state-of-the-art manufacturing development and world-class field testing.

Technology

less is more Meta Composite Science: To minimise weight, Giant engineers use FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to help develop a strategic lay-up schedule of UD (Uni-Directional) and woven composite to place the precise amount of composite material where a frame requires it and minimise excess material where the structure doesn’t require it. Additionally, most TCR Advanced models feature a unique integrated seatmast to further minimise weight and provide additional fore/aft stiffness.

custom tuned

minimal metal

Meta Composite Science: Hand-cut composite swatches are strategically laid-up piece-by-piece to create each frame. By precisely layering each individual swatch (there are over 500 pieces per frame) in an exact schedule, the frame’s ride qualities are meticulously crafted and controlled.

Meta Composite Science: Meta Composite frames use aluminium sleeves only in the bottom bracket, headtube cups and dropouts where critical metal-to-metal mechanical connections are necessary.

Your Benefit: Because of the direction of each individual piece’s composite grain, Giant engineers are able to custom-tune each frame’s individual ride characteristics. This “schedule” produces Meta Composite frames that feature a careful balance of forgiving vertical compliance and efficient lateral stiffness for maximum performance without sacrificing all-day comfort.

Your Benefit: Less metal and more composite equals less overall weight and fewer opportunities for mixed-material corrosion issues (a bad thing).

Your Benefit: Meta Composite frames are some of the lightest frames on the market, affording performance-minded riders rocket-fast acceleration and goat-like climbing prowess.

Lugless Construction Meta Composite Science: Meta Composite frames feature bladder-moulded single-piece, lugless front triangles to minimise the potential for joint failure or superfluous weight as a result of tube-junction overlap. Your Benefit: Meta Composite Technology doesn’t rely on lugs to join its tubes, so your frame is lighter, stronger, and straighter than “assembled” bicycles.

Composite Wrapping Ensures Critical Strength Meta Composite Science: Giant’s composite wrapping technology, combined with FEA computer analysis and a complex UD and woven composite lay-up schedule, ensures Meta Composite frame compliance and rigidity. Your Benefit: For critical junctions (such as the chainstays to the bottom bracket), Giant engineers utilise wrapping technology (not lugging) to produce extremely strong junctions capable of transferring high sprinting loads without sacrificing overall ride quality.

alliance

advantage

Thanks to composite’s minimal mass, Alliance frames weigh up to a half pound less than traditional aluminium frames.

2. Outstanding Lateral Stiffness

Aluminium’s unyielding stiffness gives Alliance models bottom bracket deflection equal to all-aluminium frames.

3. Superior Compliance

Composite’s legendary vibration absorption makes it the perfect choice for the strategically laid-out top section of Alliance frames. These advantages add up to an overall outstanding ride quality that balances weight, stiffness and ride compliance.

Giant’s advanced mixed-material technology for the competitive racer to the weekend club rider, Alliance, is engineered to provide significant comfort and efficiency over standard aluminium framesets. It accomplishes this by fusing two traditionally independent frame materials: composite and aluminium. Unifying these two complementary materials enables Giant to create a single structure that capitalises on the performance benefits of both. Only through Giant’s long-standing experience in working with these two materials is this highly technical union now possible. Alliance is more than just an aluminium and composite material story. It’s how they’re combined that provides the real advantage - an advantage that you’ll be able to feel in three ways (see above left).

Co-moulded Composites for a smoother Ride

Composite Upper Structure

Seamless Junctions for Superior Strength

Alliance Science: Reduced weight and superior ride compliance are both made possible through the implementation of a composite upper structure.

Alliance Science: By wrapping each composite/ aluminium union with carbon filament, Alliance frames feature nearly seamless junctions.

Your Benefit: Vibrations that normally would be transmitted to a rider’s hands and backside are dissipated by the composite structure - a tremendous benefit, especially on longer rides.

Your Benefit: Superior frame strength and a smooth appearance.

Alliance Science: A unique composite insert co-moulded to the inside of the aluminium seat tube allows Alliance frames to dissipate significantly more road vibration than traditional aluminium-seat tube frames. Your Benefit: Say goodbye to numb hands, forearms and backside.

Aluminium: A Truly Giant Strength Aluminium Sub-Structure Alliance Science: Outstanding power transfer is achieved through the lower aluminium substructure’s unyielding lateral stiffness, but without the drawback of a harsh ride.

Alliance Science: Giant’s press-formed ALUXX SL butted aluminium tubing features the precise amount of aluminium in critical stress areas. Your Benefit: Minimised weight, maximum frame stiffness and outstanding overall strength.

Your Benefit: Just right for high-intensity sprints and power climbs.

SL

Considering the fact that Giant was one of the first manufacturers to mass-produce aluminium bicycles, it’s fair to say the company knows a thing or two about aluminium technology. Building upon a thirty-four year manufacturing history, Giant continues to bring the most advanced techniques to its aluminium frame building process. This includes using the most sophisticated alloys and butting techniques available, as well as intensive training and quality-control methods.

ALUXX SL: STATEOF-THE-ART ALLOY

When it comes to custom-alloy aluminium, Giant’s ALUXX SL sets the standard by which all others are measured. Formed from raw materials in its own forging facility, Giant’s proprietary alloy features 30 percent additional stiffness over traditional 6061 series aluminium, allowing engineers to use less material throughout the tubes, which results in lighter frames that never sacrifice strength or durability.

UK Spring 2008 Brochure.indd 14

These raw ALUXX SL tubesets are further refined through a complex series of processes that provide strength (extrusion), weight reduction (butting) and shape (forming). With Giant’s in-house manufacturing capability, each step of the process is closely monitored (and is never farmed out to external vendors), ensuring every alloy bike built features the tightest tolerances and highest quality. With Giant’s ALUXX SL tubing, you know you’re riding the finest aluminium bikes on and off the road.

redefining

the road

Having been on the road for twelve years, Giant’s Compact Road philosophy has consistently confirmed itself as the premier road frame design. When Mike Burrows, the father of Compact Road, sat down to create this revolutionary design, his goals were simple: build the lightest, stiffest and most responsive frame - period. Burrows’ goals were first accomplished in the Giant TCR alloy framesets and later, the design expanded to include all of Giant TCR, Trinity, SCR and FCR models.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND COMPACT GEOMETRY By effectively sloping the toptube downward toward the seatstays, Burrows was able to reduce the overall size of the front and rear frame triangles, resulting in the now-distinctive compact layout. Functionally, the compact configuration reduces weight and increases lateral rigidity. As a result, the frame accelerates faster thanks to less energy loss through unwanted flex. Stiffer is more efficient, but it doesn’t always offer the most comfortable ride. To address this, Giant engineers are careful to include just the right amount of vertical compliance (a good thing) into each Compact Road Design for increased forgiveness and control.

Compact Road is a race-proven design that’s won both multiple Tour stages and countless weeknight crits, but is still perfect for the everyday rider who thrives on exploring their local back roads. In fact, Compact Road has proven itself so successful that just about every other manufacturer has adopted its benefits. The Compact Road revolution has only just begun…

A full range of sizes (up to six in some series) assures that riders of every size can find their ideal fit.

Unlimited

options If one idea encapsulates both mountain biking and Giant’s approach to it, it’s that you have virtually unlimited options. Mountain biking is where all the elements come together to challenge you. You’re faced with a freedom of choice that goes far beyond picking which way to go when you get to the fork in the trail. No matter whether your preference is to go around, through, or over any given obstacle, Giant makes a rig that will give you the most options and the highest levels of performance going up, going down and going everywhere in between.

We like to think that the only real limit should be your imagination and on a Giant, you’ll push even that to places where you never dreamed it could possibly go.

Sport

Looking to hit the dirt or just planning to cruise through town, these mountain bikes will get you there - wherever you choose to roam.

There’s a Giant Maestro Suspension bike built to suit your riding style. As the standard-setter for modern bicycle suspension, Maestro technology is the full-suspension platform that every one of our performance mountain bikes utilises - with seven different travel/frame configurations built to tackle every conceivable trail condition. The three core benefits that set Maestro apart are the result of careful placement of four key pivot points that neutralise both pedalling and braking forces, yet allow the suspension to remain fully active over all types of terrain.

Technology 1. Pedalling efficiency

Whether you’re sprinting up a climb or coasting through a rock garden, Maestro Suspension doesn’t react to your pedalling power and doesn’t affect your pedalling efficiency.

2. Complete suspension activity

From high-frequency trail vibrations to heavy-hitting compressions, Maestro Suspension is able to soak up the full spectrum of trail impacts.

3. Total brake independence

No matter if you’re on or off the brakes, Maestro Suspension remains fully active and unaffected by braking forces.

more contact means more control Maestro Science: Maestro’s linear spring curve allows the rear suspension to be incredibly sensitive to small bump forces. And the floating pivot point actually lets the suspension remain completely active while braking, which keeps the rear tyre in almost constant contact with the ground. Rider Benefits: The better the contact with the ground, the better the rear brake works. And the more sensitive the suspension is, the better your all-around traction.

UK Spring 2008 Brochure.indd 37

four become one

a better balance of strength and weight

Maestro Science: Maestro utilises four strategically positioned pivot points (identified as the four red dots) and two linkages that all work to create a single floating pivot point (identified as the red circle).

Maestro Science: New for 2008, select Maestro-equipped frames feature all-new lightweight designs to help shed hundreds of grams of unnecessary weight without sacrificing stiffness or strength.

Rider Benefits: This single floating pivot point improves pedal efficiency by counteracting pedalling forces that would otherwise create suspension compression (squatting) or pedal kickback. Both seriously hinder the performance of your ride by sapping energy from you and your bike.

Rider Benefits: Lighter is faster.

FIVE POINT Giant provides bikes specifically for the particular needs of women. And not just from a physiological standpoint. We try to fully understand the individual rider. We think about how women interact with our products from a variety of perspectives, including visual impact, emotional response and the feel of the bike underneath you. Our product managers have a difficult task - meeting the conditions imposed by a diverse group of women, from professional

UK Spring 2008 Brochure.indd 70

athletes to women just beginning their cycling adventure. Each bike has a spirit and purpose of its own, and that must also be recognised and respected. It’s not an easy process… Thankfully we have a group of strong-minded women and men looking after the development of the product from start to finish. We certainly don’t presume to know everything about everyone, but we bet we have a great bike for you, your riding style and the rider you’d like to be.

Five Point At Giant we have a commitment to quality that makes a statement; Our bikes have been created in ways that ensure you get the very most out of your ride. Designed for assurance, whenever you see Five Point you know we’ve covered the details for you. Every Five Point bike is built around the idea that fit and function are not novelty, but expected, you wouldn’t settle for clothes that didn’t fit, why should your bike be any different? Read on to discover how our Five Point product check list works to ensure you get the best ride available.


GEOMETRY HOW DOES LEG LENGTH EFFECT THE DESIGN PROCESS? 
 On average women have longer thigh bones than a man. The height difference due to longer legs is addressed by having a longer head tube. By raising the front end you get superior balance between the saddle and handlebar height, equipping you with a confident riding position. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE IF WOMEN HAVE A SHORTER TORSO?
 Because women have shorter torsos then men, we have shortened the top tube on our women’s bikes. This adjusts your reach giving you greater control when riding, changing gear and braking. When cycling, control equals confidence.




styling WHAT ABOUT DESIGN AND LOOK?
 Styling of ladies bikes is the most subjective element. How can you measure the appeal of a particular design? We always set out to offer the most beautiful bikes we can, and we know the stakes are high. For that reason we place a lot of emphasis on even the smallest of details.




sizing ARE THE BIKES SIZED TO FIT A WIDE RANGE OF BODIES?
 You’ll find bikes in our line from XXXS to L. We offer these bikes to cover a wide range of ergonomic needs because we know that having the proper fit is critical to enjoying the ride.


construction HAS THE VERY BEST PRODUCTION PROCESS BEEN ENGAGED TO DELIVER A QUALITY PRODUCT? Giant is the only major manufacturer that can say it produces all of its own bicycles. This ensures that the construction of every Giant bicycle is held to an exact standard because every step in the process is controlled by Giant! Our women’s bikes are the result of strict quality control over every phase of manufacture, right up to completion.




components ARE THE SPECIFICATION AND FEATURES SUITABLE TO THE LEVEL AND TYPE OF PERFORMANCE REQUIRED? In our components selection, we are certain to choose the right parts to deliver an unparalleled experience. Everything on our women’s bikes from handlebar width to crank length, has been specially selected.




Whatever the path you take all of our women’s bikes get a thorough assessment before they end up in your hands. We call this process Five Point which reviews for you GEOMETRY, STYLING, SIZING, CONSTRUCTION and COMPONENTS.

All you have to consider is your riding needs and match them to your perfect bike from the CRS range. It will change the way you move.

frame technology

The next generation lightweight ALUXX Aluminium Fluid Formed frames are the result of comprehensive research and analysis from the Giant Techno Centre. Now including triple butted tubing which places ALUXX Aluminium exactly where its needed and reduces frame weight by up to 120g over its predecessor. In addition, the lightweight CRS frame has an improved tube shape which creates a stiffer frame, enhancing power transfer but is still flexible enough to add comfort to your ride. Our flagship CRS Alliance model fuses composite and aluminium, this technical pairing is possible only through Giant’s extensive knowledge and experience working with these materials. Using composite reduces the frame weight, combined with the rigidity that Aluminium brings. The result for you is outstanding ride quality that balances weight, stiffness and ride compliance.

COMMUTERS REJOICE WE HAVE THE ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS Ever thought about ditching the traffic jam? Want to consider the healthy options to commuting whilst not being another emission polluting traveller? Concerned about the distance you have to travel? Congestion charges costing you a fortune? Then the new Twist is the solution. The Twist is the most revolutionary power assisted bicycle ever produced. The secret is in its state of the art light-weight frame and slim-line, power-packed battery offering around 80 miles of power assisted riding. Ok you might get tired but this bike just wants to keep on moving. With a range that leaves other pedal assisted bikes reaching for their charger, the new Twist is ground breaking. Previous power assisted bikes covered ranges of around only 30 miles, not the Twist. It just keeps going, and we mean going for at least another 50 miles!

TWIST 1.0 RIDING CONDITIONS

The Twist comes in two models, Twist 1.0 (8 speed, Li-ion battery) and 2.0 (7 speed, NiMH battery). Both models include a Sanyo compact hub-motor located in the front wheel with the batteries hidden beneath the rear panniers, making the new Twist impossible to single out as a power assisted bike. With the Twist you don’t just get the speed you get the style.

Dreams

Come True. For a kid, a bike isn’t just a way to get from one place to another. a bike is the first step towards independence and identity and the RIGHT bike can be even more than that. Bikes represent freedom and fun, the likes of which younger people may have never experienced before. Expanding horizons, improving health and increasing happiness - for kids (as well as everyone else), that’s what cycling is all about. Explore Giant’s complete line of kids’ bikes and educate yourself on how to choose the right bike and the right shop.

choosing the

right bike for your youngster This isn’t always as simple as it sounds. There is nothing more disappointing to a younger rider than getting a new bike on his or her birthday that doesn’t fit, is the wrong

colour, or falls apart on the first ride. Here are some “do’s” and “don’ts” that can help make choosing a new bicycle fun and safe.

DO’S : 1. Go to an Independent Bicycle Dealer to buy your child’s new bicycle for two reasons: (1) The dealer will make sure the bike is the right size for your youngster, and (2) the bike will have been assembled by an expert mechanic - not by someone who usually builds barbeque grills for another department. 2. Have your child straddle the top tube of the bike with his or her feet flat on the ground. This top bar should have at least one to three inches of clearance from your youngster’s body.

DONT’S : 4. When your child grabs the handlebars, check to see if there’s a slight bend in his or her elbows. Make sure their arms aren’t stretched out.

1. Don’t buy a bike that your child will “grow into.” Buy a bike your child can ride safely right now.

5. Make sure your child can operate the brakes. If there are brake levers on the bars, be certain your child’s fingers can reach them and pull back with enough force to stop the bike.

2. Don’t assume your child will like the bike you like. Colour and style are pretty important to you, aren’t they? They’re important to your child as well! Have your child help pick out the bike.

6. Get a new helmet at the same time. If your youngster has outgrown an existing bike, the chances are pretty good the helmet your child has been wearing is too small, too.

3. Don’t buy the cheapest bike you can find. A quality bike has better resale when your child outgrows it. Also it will last longer as a hand-me-down for little brother or sister.

3. Have your child sit on the saddle and hold the handlebar. The balls of your child’s feet must be able to comfortably touch the ground.

pursuit and a miserable experience for both your child and you. No matter what age rider you’re buying a bike for, you owe it to them and to yourself to visit your local bike shop and here’s why:

passion

service

product selection

To locate a Giant retailer near you, visit giant-bicycles.com

Independent bike dealers live and breathe cycling. Most, if not all, have turned their passion and their lifestyle into their business and the love they have for bikes comes through in the experience they deliver to you. They believe in the fun, excitement and experiences that come with riding a bike, no matter if it’s your first, your fifth, or your fifteenth.

The same knowledge and passion that make an independent bike dealer an ideal place to buy your child’s bike is what makes it the best place to get it serviced. Most other retailers don’t even offer service and maintenance for the bikes they sell and are, in general, poorly equipped to help you out after a sale.

Department stores and chain sporting goods retailers can only give over a small percentage of their floorspace to bikes. When you compromise selection, you compromise your chances of finding the perfect bike. But fear not, for an unmatched selection of bikes of all shapes and sizes awaits you at your local shop.
