See You At The Bottom Even though Jekyll boasts a unique combo of go-fast tech that's never been seen before, it's not a bike that talks. It's a bike that goes. Where it thrives Steep, fast, rowdy mountains What it's built for Enduro racing, bike park sessions, high-speed mobbing Highlights - Full carbon frame, 165mm travel, Proportional Response Tuned - Fox Float Factory X2 Shock - Guidler-Idler pulley/chainguide system Descend into Greatness It's a hell of a climber but come on. Jekyll was born for the downs. Every part of it crafted for the sweet embrace of speed, every element designed to help you wring a bit more of velocity's nectar from those steep, chunky, high pucker lines you love. Best. Suspension. Ever. 4-bar meets high pivot meets idler pulley meets size-specific kinematics. For real. If you're not up for suspension buzzword bingo, just know that it grips, floats, and pedals like nothing else. It's always up for getting down. The Gravity Cavity The shock tucks cleanly into the twin spar downtube, keeping the bike's center of gravity as low as possible. Wicked stability, instant line changes and one-of-a-kind looks. Built for You Well, not you specifically. But someone just like you. With our Proportional Response design, everything—from the suspension layout to the geometry, even the length of the chainstays—is completely customized by size, for performance built just for you. Suspension Like No Other High main pivot gives it a bump-swallowing rearward axle path. The Guidler pulley kills the pedal kickback of high pivot systems. The 4-bar linkage keeps braking smooth, traction high and pedaling crisp. Guidler Idler pulley + chainguide = Guidler. Clever, right? Idler eliminates feedback from the high pivot swingarm, keeping your pedal stroke smooth, even when the terrain isn't. The guide, well, it guides. Suspension Built For You A rider's center of gravity drives how the suspension performs, yet most bikes use the exact same layout for all sizes. Proportional Response Suspension alters the design by size for truly next-level performance. Proportional Response Geometry Long, slack and low—and fully size-specific. As the front of the bike gets longer with each size, the chain stay length increases proportionally, keeping the rider centered between the wheels for true "made for you" handling. Guardhouse Downtube protector keeps your frame safe from roost and strikes, while letting water and debris pass through. The Ai Advantage Our Ai Offset Drivetrain delivers more tire and mud clearance in the swingarm, and more even spoke angles for a stiffer, stronger rear wheel.
Introducing the HD6, the evolution of one of the most successful enduro bikes in history. Designed with input from our Enduro World Cup team and building upon our award-winning Ripmo and HD lines, the HD6 features increased travel, a completely redesigned suspension layout, and mixed wheels. GEOMETRY The 29" front wheel, bolstered by 180mm of travel, assures stability, whereas the 27.5" rear wheel allows for additional maneuverability. The 165mm of travel skillfully manages any fallout. With a 64-degree head tube angle (one-degree slacker than the current Ripmo), a BB height similar to Mojo HD5, and chainstay length identical to the current Ripmo (despite the 27.5" rear wheel), the bike maintains an equilibrium between agility and stability. FIVE SIZES In order to place every size rider in the same position over the rear wheel, the HD's seat tube angles get steeper as frame size increases. With four sizes, this would have resulted in larger jumps in reach, so we added a fifth size. The smaller increments across five sizes means that you can find just the right size. We encourage riders to choose their bike size based on their desired reach and top tube measurements. COIL COMPATIBLE Our upper link suspension layout is progressive enough to be sensitive off the top, yet supportive enough for the biggest hits. It is also compatible with all coil shocks, for those longer race stages that can tax air shock performance. DW-LINK The suspension layout may be new, but it's still DW-Link. The inherent efficiency means you don't need an overdamped shock to climb well. Less shock damping allows the wheels to stay planted on the ground, providing more traction and that hover-bike feel that our frames are known for. The HD6 climbs with a finesse that defies its enduro race pedigree. TRACTION TUNE Our custom tuned front and rear suspension feature extra light high speed compression and rebound damping to deliver unparalleled traction. This allows the wheels to flutter through rough terrain like a trophy truck storming through a set of whoops. BUSHINGS Tired of buying bearings each season? So were we. That's why we've strategically employed bushings where they're most effective and bearings elsewhere. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are not only lighter and stiffer, they're virtually maintenance-free. We believe so strongly in them, we back them with free lifetime replacement. LIGHTWEIGHT PREMIUM CARBON All our bikes are built from the highest grade materials and optimized for the best strength, weight, stiffness, and ride performance, no matter how much you spend. The HD6 frame is sub 6 lbs without shock and our complete Enduro ready builds weigh as little as 32 lbs. INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING Bikes that look pretty on the outside should look pretty on the inside. We use carbon fiber tubes molded within each frame. Push the cable in, watch it pop out a beautiful moment indeed. PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT A thick rubber downtube protector deflects debris, while our chainstay protector features thick raised sections to help dampen chain slap noise. And our simple-yet-elegant linkage protectors stop mud and rocks thrown by the tire, keeping your beautiful bike beautiful. LIFETIME WARRANTY If it's our fault, we'll fix it. Simple as that.
The 5010 is not just "the little bike" of our range. It makes even the most mundane trails feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over.

The only thing it needs is a rider willing to press send.
The Exie USA is a World-Cup capable cross-country race bike that flat out shreds. With a sub 2,000g frame weight and dw-link suspension, it offers a stunning combination of pedaling efficiency and downhill performance. We designed, built, and tested it in our Santa Cruz factory, which is powered by the warm California sunshine. RACE PROVEN Jenny Rissveds won the 2023 Lenzerheide XCC World Cup Cross Country Event on the Ibis Exie, a bike we quite literally made in our own backyard here in Northern California! BUILT BY US We build each Exie USA in our Northern California factory. This gives us the utmost control, which enables us to hit remarkable frame strength, stiffness, and weight targets for this frame. SIZE SPECIFIC SEAT ANGLES Whether you're racing short track or on a multi day epic, the Exie's seat tube angles allows you to harness your strongest muscles, while reducing any potential knee or wrist strain. We've also steepened the seat tube angles as the frames get larger, to allow riders with different inseams to achieve the same riding positions. DW-LINK SUSPENSION Don't squander a single watt. Our dw-link suspension platform offers incredible climbing efficiency and traction along with plush, downhill-crushing goodness. RIDE MORE, WRENCH LESS We use bushings where it makes sense and bearings where it doesn't. The IGUS bushings in our lower link are lighter, stiffer, and virtually maintenance free. We've also added features like a threaded bottom bracket to help make any future maintenance easy. INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING Internal cable routing doesn't have to be a pain. We've added internal tubes to our tubes, no picksets, flashlights, or swear words required. 2.4" TIRE CLEARANCE You can run overbuilt, chunky tires; you can run light, big volume fast tires, but whatever you run, you're not limited by width. 2X BOTTLE CLEARANCE The Exie USA has clearance for two water bottles inside the front triangle on every size frame. INTEGRATED CHAIN GUIDE Drop the hammer, not your chain. LIFETIME WARRANTY If it's our fault, we'll fix it. Simple as that.
From early pioneers like Rob Warner in the 1990s to world champions including Myles Rockwell (2000) and Danny Hart (2011), many of downhill racing's greatest legends have flown the flag for Giant over the years. This special-edition frameset celebrates that heritage with vintage Giant colors and design. Beneath the stunning paint lies cutting-edge DH design and technology including full-composite construction, an all-new Maestro suspension system, and ultra adjustability to tackle different types of DH terrain. KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS RACE-READY SUSPENSION A new Maestro rear suspension system, developed over several seasons of World Cup racing with Giant engineers and pro athletes, features 200mm of smooth, active travel for race-winning speed. The rear suspension is paired with a 203mm travel fork, providing superior confidence and control on the most extreme DH racetracks and trails. ULTRA ADJUSTABLE Three flip chips provide unprecedented adjustability. First, a three-position Maestro flip chip lets you dial in frame geometry for your riding style and terrain. Next, a new headset flip chip adjusts reach so you can easily achieve perfect positioning. And finally, a rear dropout flip chip lets you adjust the overall wheelbase and handling characteristics. REAR WHEEL OPTIONS Choose either a 29-inch or 27.5-inch rear wheel. Frameset can be built with a mixed wheel "mullet" setup that many racers prefer with the smaller rear wheel creating a snappy, agile feel and increased saddle-to-tire clearance in the rear. For those who favor the rollover speed and stability of two 29-inch wheels, you can easily swap out the rear wheel. HIGHLIGHTS: Thoroughly reengineered from the ground up, the new Glory Advanced features a lightweight, super strong composite frame, 200mm of Maestro rear suspension (with a 203mm fork up front), and multiple flip chips to dial in geometry, rear wheel size, fit and positioning. The stock setup is a mixed-wheel configuration with a 29-inch front and 27.5-inch rear, striking a perfect balance of roll-over speed and maneuverability. Riders also have the option to switch to a 29-inch rear wheel using a simple two-position flip chip on the rear dropout. The legend is back. ADVANCED COMPOSITE Mainframe and rear swingarm crafted with high-performance grade raw carbon fiber and custom resin that's custom made in Giant's own composite factory. Handcrafted monocoque construction makes it extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant. MAESTRO SUSPENSION Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages all work together to create a single floating pivot for the most active, efficient and independent suspension system on the trail. ADVANCED FORGED COMPOSITE A state-of-the-art high-pressure molding process is used to produce the hybrid aluminum/carbon fiber upper rocker link that's lighter, stiffer and stronger than pure aluminum. ADJUSTABLE DH GEOMETRY Frame geometry can be adjusted between three settings to match riding style and terrain. You can select a 61.6, 62 or 62.3-degree head angle and corresponding 78.4, 78.8, or 79.1-degree seat tube angle, resulting in a 13, 8 or 3mm bottom bracket drop (size M/L). ADJUSTABLE WHEELBASE A flip chip on the rear dropout can be set to a Long or Short position to adjust the wheelbase and rear-center measurement. The Short position results in quicker, more agile handling for tight, technical terrain. The Long position extends the wheelbase for added stability on faster trails with longer straightaways and high-speed cornering. REACH ADJUST A three-position flip chip at the headset lets riders quickly dial in cockpit dimensions and geometry. This modular system has two positioning chips that can be removed and swapped to achieve a Short (-5mm), Mid (0mm) or Long (+5mm) reach and fine-tune the bike's handling and rider positioning. REAR WHEEL OPTIONS Riders can choose either a 29- or 27.5-inch rear wheel, paired with a 29-inch front wheel. The larger 29-inch option improves stability and roll-over capabilities, while the 27.5 option delivers a more agile, snappier feel. It's a quick and easy change to adjust the bike's handling and feel. MEGADRIVE A massive rectangular down tube and oversized top tube provide superior lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped down tube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
