Does your Giant xtc se have 100mm for? Then Pike coil uturn will work but a bit over kill for the frame and weighs 5+lbs. You might want to check out Revelation Coil or Dual air u-turn...also Recon. A bit cheaper and better match for your frame.

the xtc is a 100mm xc frame, i wouldnt go any bigger personally.

id look at the rock shox reba, not the pike, the pike is way way too aggressive of a fork for a lightweight xc rig - plus youd need to get a 20mm through axle front wheel.

a reba would keep the handling sweet, and could be set up exactly how you like it. and only weight 1500g to boot. the only difference between the reba race and team is the crown, the team is slightly lighter, but costs a fair whack more. the lowers and internals are identical.
