ALUXX SL Aluminum Technology

This state-of-the-art, high-performance aluminum material is primarily made of the 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also employ unique welding methods for a high-performance riding experience.

The hydraulic lockout fork has a 60mm travel and is intended to reduce discomfort and absorb shock from the road.

Hybrid Cycling Technology

An intelligent, organic, and powerful E-bike riding experience is produced by a system known as hybrid cycling technology. The SyncDrive motor, EnergyPak battery systems, and our RideControl control unit make up this integrated set of technology.


Giant’s 36-volt 13.8Ah lithium-ion rechargeable EnergyPak is used as fuel.

This side-released battery has sleek looks and only adds 3.2 kg to the bike’s overall weight.

In fact, this mid-drive motor supports up to 350% of rider power output while producing a strong 80Nm of torque.

The tune able support, which enables you to modify the responsiveness of the drive based on choice or riding style, is unquestionably a fantastic feature.

Depending on the rider’s weight, the terrain, and the quantity of assistance provided, it is difficult to forecast the actual battery range. It usually takes the battery less than six (6) hours to fully recharge from empty to full.

Smart Assist

All SyncDrive motors have Smart Assist technology, which enables the support to be customised to the rider’s needs. The optimal amount of pedalling assistance is determined by combining data from multiple sensors with input from the rider and feedback from the terrain. SyncDrive is the only e-bike innovation that takes advantage of both rider input and terrain feedback. It gives you a comfortable, natural riding experience when you need more power while conserving power when you don’t.

Shimano CS-HG200, 11-36T/9 Speed Drivetrain with Fenders

The same reliable powertrain seen in previous Giant Explore models, the 42 tooth forged alloy chainring connects to the 9 Speed Shimano CS-HG200 cassette and supports a KMC e.9 Sport chain designed specifically for eBikes. The Shimano system requires less maintenance because the dependable drivetrain is now shielded by fenders.

Ride Control ERGO

With improved controls and a neat handlebar configuration, RideControl Ergo elevates your E-bike riding experience. The sturdy buttons have a comfortable feel and grip and are made to be used in all environments. The controls have innovative LED lighting that shows your battery level and allows you to choose between five support modes (Power, Sport, Active, Basic, Eco). Additionally, it works with the brand-new RideDash EVO, an integrated display that attaches on the handlebar/stem region and provides vital riding information like speed, distance, and navigation.

SyncDrive Sport

Any rider’s capabilities can be expanded by a Yamaha motor system thanks to innovation, manufacturing know-how, and other factors. Three support modes are available with SyncDrive Sport, which is installed on E-bikes used for both commuting and more difficult off-road riding. The performance and dependability of this tiny mid-drive motor, which has a maximum torque of 80Nm, are well praised.

Giant Crosscut Gravel 2, 700x45c (622×45) Tires

The studded tubeless tyres are made to provide safe and stable riding on a variety of surfaces, including smooth roads, cobblestone streets, steep, loose dirt mountain routes, and more. Returning is the fast release mechanism, which makes it simple to remove the tyre in the event that you need to change a flat or pack down your bike to fit it in the trunk of your car.

On Giant E-bikes, a number of different EnergyPak substitutes are offered, including the EnergyPak Smart and EnergyPak. Each one is designed to improve a certain riding style’s experience on an e-bike.

RideDash EVO
