Hail is meticulously handcrafted around 160mm suspension to balance women on steep, technical terrain, up and down. Predictably drift through fast corners, and confidently hold your line in speed-sucking rock gardens. The lightweight frame design offers climbing prowess to match its descending dexterity. The 27.5-inch wheel size ensures that bike handling is still nimble and playful, perfect for aggressive trail riding, bike park runs, and enduro racing.
Used to create a lightweight composite upper rocker arm that achieves impressive lateral stiffness and strength.
Giant’s Maestro Suspension with trunnion mount shock improves performance for efficient pedaling and a smooth ride.
160 MM Suspension
Hail is the first 160 mm enduro/ all-mountain bike made from the ground up for women.
ALUXX SL Frame
Lightweight aluminum frame made in Giant’s own industry-leading aluminum manufacturing facility contributes to weight reduction and a quick, agile feel.
Performance Trail Components
800 mm DH handlebar gives the rider the flexibility to adjust to fit her riding style. Shorter stem, dropper seat post and performance hydraulic disc brakes offer greater control and easier movement on the bike.
3F Design Philosophy
Fit | Form | Function. This process analyzes global body dimension studies in combination with product testing with professional riders like Leigh Donovan.
27.5-Inch Wheel Size
27.5-in wheel with Schwalbe’s Magic Mary tires and carbon rims providelimitless traction while maintaining lighter weight efficiency.
Designed to offer precise steering performance, stiffness and control the system’s oversized headset bearings and tapered steerer tube provide ultimate steering performance.
3F: Fit, Form, Function
Fit, Form, and Function — Liv’s data-driven approach to building bikes for women.
Fit: Liv analyzes data on human body dimension, muscular strength and muscular activity, then considers the type of riding the rider will be doing, to build a frame that is fine-tuned through athlete feedback cycles with the goal to fit as many women as possible.
Form: The bike’s outlook takes the form with the intention to create a strong bond between the rider and the bike. The designers match the performance level of the bike with a beautiful and inspiring outlook.
Function: The componentry of the bike is carefully selected and the composite layup is uniquely crafted to give the rider an unprecedented performance edge and comfort
This High-Performance level, state-of-the-art aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also feature unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.
Maestro Suspension Technology
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.
Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, this fork steerer tube technology uses oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
