Strengths:    This bike is an absolute blast. Shred the downhill as fast as a downhill bike. but be able to pedal up if needs be. Big hits are no problem on this bike, of course it will bottom out faster than a downhill bike but if you land reasonably smooth then you're better than perfect. Super lightweight and fun. Easy to toss around. Best bike i've ever ridden hands down. I even got a new one of these over my specialized demo 8. Thats saying something.

Weaknesses:    Rear triangle is super light and flexes in corners a lot. To the point where its noticeable. Only on whistler though for me.

Bottom Line:   
Such a banger bike. if you want a bike that does it all. Get one. I highly recommend it.

Strengths:    Light frame weight, great rear suspension

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, for people who prefer more downhill than up and like to hit a few jumps, awesome on small to meduim jumps, handles medium drops to 10ft well, lightweight so great pedalling uphill (once you change out that stupid rear cluster), rerouted the rear brake hose from under the frame. Im 6ft - 87kg and the Large fits perfect, rear spring perfect, front spring maybe a little tight to get perfect sag but stops it bottoming out on the larger drops. Brakes o.k. nothing to write home about but you can up spec if want

Strengths:    33lbs out of the box-light for a dh/park bike, geometry, handling, wheelset/parts package, pedals great, looks awesome

Weaknesses:    none so far except the grips shred up fast

Bottom Line:   
The Giant Reign has been the do it all bike. The SX is the same thing but it leans more towards the guys that go a bit bigger than all mountain. It's light enough to pedal up most climbs(you need good legs with only the nine speed)and can hit anything on any downhill run. The new frame is super dialed and a lot easier to adjust and do maintenance. I am 6' tall and 160lbs and the large is perfect, if you want to do straight DH or park riding get the next size down. I use this bike from XC rides to the dirt jump and DH parks. If your stuck between the X1 and the SX go for the SX, a beefier parts package and for like $150 you can add the extra gears. Maestro is the best design out there to, as long as you can stay in the saddle the SX hooks up great on climbs without much bob at all. Fun fun bike easy to corner and throw around, jumps great to. If you want to go as close to a DH bike as you can and still pedal around get the SX.

Trance SX Review and Reign Comparison

I got the 2015 Trance SX! The green color looks much better than on the website, but it's definitely different than the neon colors the other brands are using. It's kind of an "army green", not sure how I feel about that yet. The shop charged me $4k even + tax, which I think is an awesome deal, beca ... Read More »

13' reign 1 or 14' trance sx ?

Hey guys, I've been into riding more seriously now and decide to get a more serious bike. Between the rising I like and what is in my area (New England) I'm considering a 2013 reign 1 or the 2014 trance sx. I love the look of the reign 1, and the components are good.
