Details

Explode out of the start gate with speed and confidence. Rail through corners with total control. Glory delivers proven DH performance, devouring rocks, ruts and drops so you can shave seconds off your time and crank up the fun factor.

DH terrain comes at you fast. You need the confidence and control to make split-second decisions and commit to your lines. With 203mm of fully active Maestro Suspension featuring a trunnion-mount shock, the Glory 27.5 has been tested and proven by some of the top DH racers and gravity riders in the world. Its lightweight, super-strong frame is engineered with geometry that’s optimized for its 27.5 wheels, plus a super stiff OverDrive steerer tube for unwavering control and steering precision. The 63-degree headtube angle and longer wheelbase was developed and refined with riders from the Giant Factory Off-Road Team to excel on the steepest, most extreme DH tracks in the world.

    Dont let the cost scare you. you pay for what you get with the Dh Machine. no wonder Danny Hart and Duncan Riffle are some of the fastest riders out there on the Glory. This bike sticks to the ground and is 2-3 lbs lighter then any other DH Bike i have ever ridden. i would recommend this bike to anyone who want the extreme.

      At 46 lbs. the Glory is not for weight concerned riders. It's a tank! But a super solid, burly frame going down hill. It corners well and it's a big drop, big jump carnivor. Any steep or rock garden seeming daunting gets devoured by the marzocchi suspention. The Hayes brakes provide incredible stopping power. Kenda tires give good traction up and down. Srams shifting components are low maintenance and crisp enough for a FR bike. For the intented use of FR/DH two thumbs up.
