More information at: BikeRadar, 2/2012 Giant Anthem X 29'er 1 The original Anthem X was Giant's way of re-writing the 100mm, full suspension bike rule book as it was both fast and fun to ride. They have now added 29in wheels in a bid to do the same again. … to review

More information at: BikeRadar, 4/2012 Giant XtC Composite 29er 1 Many brands seem to have gone 29er mad, and although Giant are not as bad as some, their 2012 range still has a hefty amount of these big-wheel bikes. Of their two carbon models, the XtC Composite 29er 1 is the lower priced. … to review

More information at: BikeRadar, 4/2011 Giant Talon 29 After years of mainly frame-only options for 29in wheel fans, it’s pleasing to see a few more big-brand complete bike offerings in the sub-£1,000 price categories.

More information at: BikeRadar, 7/2010 2011 Giant Trance X - First ride There's a reason why Giant’s 5in-travel Trance X is the company's bestseller – because it's so versatile. For 2011, it loses a little weight (courtesy of a straight rather than bent top tube), gains a little stiffness and gets a 0.5° slacker head tube angle. … to review

More information at: BikeRadar, 1/2011 Giant Talon 2 (11) Big bike companies aren’t always responsive to local needs, but when Giant’s US-based design team were asked by Giant UK to build a hardtail specifically for British riding conditions, they came up with the Talon series. The Talon 2 offers exactly the same chassis as the range-topping Talon 0, only with a much more affordable price tag. … to review

Product information and further reviews

Giant TCR Advanced 3 (10) Expert Reviews 10/2010 - In terms of ride quality, you won't find many bikes as good as Giant's TCR Advanced. It's fantastically accurate, with a greedy enthusiasm for speed and climbs. If you've got £2,000 in your pocket and want an all-out racy road bike, it's hard to beat.

Giant Defy 2 (10) BikeRadar 10/2009 - Giant have a reputation for producing great value-for-money machines, and their entry-level Defy 2 doesn't disappoint. For the aspiring sportive rider or someone looking for their first road bike, its mix of comfort, performance and stable handling is worthy of serious consideration.

Giant Bowery Mashup (09) BikeRadar 8/2009 - The Mashup, one of four Bowery fixed bikes from Giant, differs from the rest of the range with its straight bar setup, instead of a more traditional drop. We've loved the other models in the range, so it's such a shame that this one misses the mark.

Giant Trinity Alliance (09) BikeRadar 7/2009 - The Trinity Alliance is the middle option in the triathlon range from Taiwanese giants Giant, sitting between the aluminium framed Trinity (£1200) and the tricked-out carbon composite Trinity Advanced (£3250). The Alliance splits the difference with a frame that fuses carbon and aluminium. A female-specific version is available too – the Aeryn Alliance W (£2000).
