2016 Glory Advanced 1

Bobby Ketchum | Wednesday, 11 November 2015

Giant first introduced a carbon-framed Glory half way through the 2015 model year and it's back for 2016 in two models, the Advanced 0 and Advanced 1. Having worked on it for over 2 years, Giant reckons this frame is perfectly dialed, being as stiff, reliable and fast as ever.

Here's our Advanced 1, spec'd with Fox's new DHX2 shock, the updated Float 40 Elite and Shimano Zee drivetrain and brakes. A complete DH bike for relatively little money.
