2015 Giant Reign 27.5

There's a lot of buzz out there about the new 2015 Giant Reign 27.5.

This bike is really dialed in. It offers 6.3 inches of Maestro rear suspension travel and a longer, lower chassis than its 26-inch-wheel predecessor, which improves stability and handling on rough terrain without sacrificing stiffness or adding weight. The Reign 27.5 model also features an OverDrive steerer tube design for added front-end stiffness and steering precision, along with a new 12x142 rear thru-axle design and 27.5-specific geometry. Internal cable ports give it a sleek, uncluttered look.
