I’ve received a few inquiries about the 2010 Giant Glory 0. This is a great downhill MTB with a full 8″ of travel. Last year’s Glory was heavy. The ‘10 model has been in development for two years. The result is a unbelievable 1.5kg (3.3lb, or 26.8 percent) weight loss.
The new line of MTB from Giant is about to be released, with weight savings all around. A full XC racing Giant Anthem X Advamced SL 0 will tip the scales at about 9.8kg (21.8lbs). Frame itself weighs 2.1kg (4.63lb). This is straight out of the box. Imagine what you can do with a few more carbon parts.
