Everything you need to know about Giant Bikes

Looking for a bike and not sure where to start? Not sure about who’s who in the biking world? Or do you want to find out a bit more about your favourite brand?

Welcome to everything you need to know about Giant bikes!

Firstly, let’s talk a little bit about Giant and BikeExchange.com.au


We go way back…!

Together we have delivered some of the most incredibly popular bike promotions in BikeExchange.com.au’s history, including the memorable ‘win a Giant bike every day’ competition during the Santos Tour Down Under.

Here is something you might not know...

Giant doesn’t need much of an introduction, but do you know what got the brand ticking and how?

Giant bike founders were engineers and craftsman who, in the early 1970s, realised they could put their expertise to good use and enhance the cycling experience by enhancing the actual bike itself. (Picture)

The masterstroke was developing lightweight aluminium frames – all of a sudden Giant was delivering high-quality bikes that were not out of financial reach. The public responded, and bike sales increased; more people began to discover the joy of cycling.

Let’s hear it for the girls. Introducing Liv/giant

A diffusion brand just for females? Sounds like a smart move…

Liv/giant is all about encouraging more women to take up – and maintain – cycling at any level. Liv/giant is an off-shoot brand of Giant comprising women-specific designed bikes, gear, accessories, events (including bike maintenance classes for women) and ambassadors. The Liv/giant family encourages a culture of happy, healthy, more adventurous women linked by a passion for cycling. Liv/giant has established a number of regular women’s rides around Australia that are for cyclists of all levels and skill.

Giant – for the Tech Head

Bikes are like computers – they just keep getting smarter, better and more efficient. So what makes a bike brilliant? Giant has a fair idea.

Composite Technology - Otherwise referred to as carbon fibre, delivers an ultra lightweight-to-strength ratio frame. In the world of speed cycling the stronger but lighter the frame, the better.

  • SL Composite – this is Giant’s premium, pro-grade carbon fibre and is woven in Giant’s very own factory

  • Advanced Composite Technology – high performance grade carbon with excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio

  • Giant Composite Technology - performance-grade raw carbon features best-in-class stiffness-to-weight ratios

Aluminium Technology

Lighter, stronger, stiffer. Engineering and cutting edge materials combine to deliver aluminium bike frames that continue to evolve to be lighter, stronger and stiffer than their predecessor models.

• ALUXX SLR – Giant’s top-of-the-range aluminium frameset with the highest strength-to-weight ratios, most advanced forming methods, and unique welding techniques

• ALUXX SL – Extremely lightweight framesets featuring high-performance strength-to-weight ratios

• ALUXX – Lightweight framesets featuring optimized strength-to-weight ratios

Compact Road Design

The science seems simple – smaller triangles create a stiffer, stronger bike. With this knowledge, Giant developed Compact Road Design, which essentially saw the toptube sloping down from the headtube, thus making the frame’s front and rear triangles smaller. Genius.
