Chaotic starts, the battle for position, red zone climbs and technical descents. XC racing is where adrenaline meets endurance, and this all-new superlight hardtail gives you just the kick you need to move up through the pack. When it comes to pure XC racing speed and performance, nothing beats the efficiency of a lightweight composite hardtail. The new XtC Advanced SL 29 builds on its World Cup pedigree with a totally reengineered frame that represents the lightest off-road machine we’ve ever built. The superlight chassis is handcrafted with pro-level Advanced SL composite, featuring geometry that’s optimized for its balanced, stable and fast-rolling 29-inch wheels. Each one is custom assembled with a specific composite layup schedule that varies according to frame size. The result? Supercharged climbing efficiency, smooth compliance through roots, rocks and ruts, and uncompromising performance to match your XC obsession. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Superlight and responsive Pro-level Advanced SL composite frame is the lightest off-road frame Giant has ever produced, offering serious XC racers a competitive advantage for climbing, accelerating and sprinting. Ultra-efficient The frame is engineered with the highest stiffness-to-weight-ratio of any hardtail mountain bike in its class, which translates to ultra-efficient pedaling power and precise handling on the trail. Custom compliance Each frame is custom-tuned based on its size. Individual composite lay-up schedules are created to optimize vertical compliance to produce a smoother ride quality on XC terrain.
Easy to get to know and multi-talented, Salsa’s Timberjack is equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Its light, responsive, and durable aluminum frame features modern trail bike geometry and clearance for either 29-inch or 27.5+ wheels and tires. Super short chainstays aid in nimble scrambling; up, down, and in and out of turns. Alternator dropouts facilitate diverse drivetrain setups. RockShox handles suspension up front with a 120mm-travel Judy TK Silver fork, while a pair of WTB Scraper i40 rims hold up to your trail aggression to let those 27.5 x 2.8-inch WTB Ranger tires serve up all the traction you could want. Timberjack NX1 offers a wide-range, 11-speed SRAM NX drivetrain with Tektro hydraulic brakes. This solid package further enhances the bike’s climbing talent and delivers powerful braking control so you can pin it and still swoop the hairpins.
Cutthroat brings speed to the mixed surface, ultra-endurance bikepacking race scene. Every aspect was designed to obliterate long-distance cycling route records. An evolutionary leap in all-road bikes, Cutthroat lets you ride long, hard, and fast in comfort. The full-carbon frame delivers race-winning efficiency and offers Salsa’s Class 5 Vibration Reduction System to reduce energy-robbing trail chatter. Salsa added a RockShox Reba 100mm fork to reduce arm fatigue and expand the already capable Cutthroat’s gamut of performance. The WTB i23 rims and Maxxis Ikon tires fly on fire roads and stand up to hours-on-end punishment, all while keeping rolling resistance and rotating weight down so you can keep pushing. The Cutthroat’s SRAM Apex 1x11 drivetrain offers secure, streamlined efficiency with a wide gear range shifted by SRAM’s crisp DoubleTap shifting to maintain speed and momentum in widely variable terrain. And, Tektro Spyre C disc brakes deliver excellent stopping power with a lightweight design and quick field serviceability for emergency adjustments and repairs anywhere with minimal downtime.
