Single test
3.5 out of 5 stars

According to BikeRadar, the Trance has long had a reputation as being a bike that feels safe on the trails, and Giant's latest Trance X2 carries on the tradition. The frame is stiffer and a cutting-edge direct-mount rear brake has been added, giving an all-round composed, reliable feel. But BikeRadar wished that Giant had gone with longer or even just travel-adjustable forks.

"... Our end conclusion is that the Trance X is as capable of cross-country racing as it is just having a lot of fun trail riding on the weekends with friends; furthermore, adding an adjustable seat post and bigger tyres gives it plenty of Super D prowess. What was already a good bike has been made even better by the latest improvements."
