Giant

Giant is a true giant when it comes to bikes! The company from Taiwan is often referred to as the largest bike manufacturer on the planet. We did not count units, but Giant undoubtedly is one of today’s largest producers of bicycles and e-bikes. And the huge production numbers have many advantages for you as a cyclist! Of course, there is a lot to choose from, but since Giant buys huge quantities from its suppliers, the low prices can be passed on to each buyer. Last but not least, there's a long list of exciting in-house innovations, lots of experience and great bikes and e-bikes. Liv definitely is one of Giant's most interesting offshoots. The subsidiary builds bikes exclusively for women.

Things to know about Giant

King Liu founded his company under the name of Giant Manufacturing Company in 1972 in Taiwan. Legend has it that founder King Liu himself was by no means a particular fan of cycling; his interest was building up a business. Apparently, he had to turn 70 before he began to ride longer bicycle tours through Asia. Initially, Giant manufactured bicycles for the US bicycle manufacturer Schwinn. In the 80s, Schwinn increasingly cooperated with other producers, Giant then had to take a leap of faith and released their first own bike models. With truly gigantic success…

In the coming years, the brand expanded worldwide, through the cooperation with Koga, the subsidiary Giant Europe was created. With its huge experience in designing, developing and building bicycles, Giant still is a popular partner with other manufacturers from around the world. Despite the somewhat unfavorable label "mass-produced", Giant's bikes convince bikers on all continents. After all, Giant offers a high-quality and extensive full range and builds bikes and e-bikes in all price ranges and frame sizes. They simply offer a suitable two-wheeler for everyone, from inexpensive children's bikes to a noble carbon steed, always true to the company motto:

Ride Life. Ride Giant.

Whether you’re after a road bike, mountain bike, trekking bike or city e-bike, Giant supplies every type of bike and e-bike in different model versions and equipment variants, so a wide price range can be guaranteed. But that's not all: from A like arm warmers to almost Z like wingnuts, Giant also supplies bike parts, clothing, helmets and bike accessories

The true giant of bike making

Just to give you an idea of Giant’s sheer size: 6.6 million Giant bikes were sold by 12,000 authorized dealers around the world in 2017. During the 2020/21 pandemic, the demand for Giant's bikes grew so tremendously that the company was able to report a 55% increase in sales and now is planning on building more factories, including one in Europe. The trend of the 20s also showed clearly - 30% of the bicycles delivered lately were equipped with an electric drive unit. 

Innovations by and with Giant

As you can expect from a bicycle manufacturer of this scale, numerous proprietary technologies originate from Giant’s in-house product department. From big ideas like their own high-performance carbon blends called Advanced Composite or Advanced Composite SL with CNT (carbon nanotube technology), which make bike frames lighter while bringing excellent stiffness and improved impact resistance, to smart solutions for seemingly insignificant details such as Particle Flow, Giant is constantly driving technologies further in order to increase cyclist’s performance and comfort in the saddle. Particle Flow, by the way, refers to pockets in the bike saddle filled with loose particles that adapt perfectly to the owner for maximum comfort. 

Giant’s Carbon Bikes

Giant was not among the pioneers when it comes to carbon bikes, but it was one of the first manufacturers to make carbon frames available in large unit numbers. In 1984, Giant used carbon fiber on a bicycle frame for the first time. Cadex road bike was also one of the first bikes designed with the assistance of computer simulations. 

Today, numerous carbon-based models are available, mostly road bikes and mountain bikes, of course, but you can also find Giant's particularly lightweight carbon bikes among e-bikes and touring bikes.

Bike like the pros

To give a small overview of the models that Giant has on offer, you really only have to take a look at the top lists of any international bike competition.
