One of the most trusted gear review sites on the internet, Outdoor Gear Lab, had great things to say about the Giant Trance 29 3.
“The Giant Trance 29 3 is an excellent trail bike, and our Top Pick for Short Travel in this price range. This 29er may only have 115mm of rear-wheel travel paired with a 130mm fork, but that doesn’t slow this bike down. In fact, this playful and lively ripper is a quick climber and downhill shredder. The Trance 29 is a new breed of shorter travel bikes with modern geometries, this bike is only limited by its modest travel numbers. This quick-witted ride is reasonably lightweight with a nice build for the price. If you’re looking for a versatile and well-rounded short travel rig for ripping the local trails, consider the Trance 29 3.”
How It Stacked Up Against The Competition
The Trance 29 3 scored an 83/100 on Outdoor Gear Lab’s overall score. Compared to other bikes in the same category and price range, it ranked number two falling just shy of the Polygon Siskiu T8. We were impressed to see the Trance 29 3 scored higher than other brand-name bikes like the Kona Process 134 29 and Trek Fuel EX5. It also seemed to impress the reviewers. They described the bike as having an “energetic playful feel, lighter weight, 12-speed drivetrain, and modern trail bike geometry.” Giant has come a long way in recent years in terms of its high-performance bikes, and the Trance 29 3 is no exception.
