Giant’s range of 2017 bikes continues to come into the shops, and we’ve just taken delivery of this rather special looking Reign Advanced 1.

We think it looks amazing in the bright red, and certainly stands out in the dull days we’ve had recently. This particular model will be used as one of our test bikes for 2017 and we’ll keep you updated as we ride it throughout the year. We’ll use it as a test bed for interesting products that come into the shops and we look forward to giving you some real world reviews of what it’s like to live with a carbon super-enduro bike like the Reign Advanced.

We’ll use the bike for trips to various trail centres and bike parks in the UK and possibly even a cheeky trip to the alps. You may even see us entering an enduro event on it in the summer.
