Giant E-Bikes 2018: Giant and Liv have announced their new range for 2018. The Taiwanese brand continues to use the Yamaha drivetrain for its bikes but has introduced a new removable (from the side of the downtube) battery. More bikes in the range now feature the powerful SyncDrive Pro motor. We were at the launch and have selected our favourites.

Giant exclusively use Yamaha motors for their fleet of E-Bikes and will continue to do so in the future. Whilst Yamaha provides the hardware, Giant develops its own control software. Amongst other advantages, this allows Giant to use their new battery as well as interface the system with the in-house Giant RideControl Evo display and control unit. The SyncDrive motor also benefits from a narrow (read normal) mountain bike q-factor of 168 mm.

Giant Dirt-E+ – Trail Hardtail

After 2 years in Giant’s line-up the Dirt-E+ has the most significant changes for 2018. It is based on the Giant SyncDrive motor, though several high-end models use the Pro version. The bike is significantly more focussed on trail-riding for 2018 and should be well suited to long days on off-road terrain. This focus is verified by the high volume, tubeless, plus-tyres from Maxxis as well as the more aggressive geometry of the frame. Despite this, Giant have recognised that not everybody will be taking this bike into the hills, and there are small nods to practicality in the form of hidden mounts for a side-stand, mudguards and racks. There is even integrated cabling pre-fitted which can use the battery to power lights. However, a front derailleur can’t be fitted on the pro models.

The new battery – which gets taken out sideways from the downtube, has allowed smaller frame sizes to be built. Less space is needed between the top tube and down tube because the battery is integrated into the latter. This also gives a lower standover height (700 mm in size M). Almost all eMTBs in the range have a slightly increased reach and for this bike the head angle has been slackened to 68°. The chainstays have been lengthened to accommodate the new plus-sized tyres. To keep the centre of gravity low the bottom bracket drop has increased by 10 mm and the head tube has been shortened by 15–20 mm.

New Clipless Shoes – Line and Shuttle

There are two new clipless shoes from Giant for this year – the enduro/trail model called “Line” and the downhill model “Shuttle”. They both share the same water resistant material and the nylon “Exobeam” sole with motion efficiency system (MES) giving a stiff and stable shoe. The removable EVA insole uses the antibacterial TransTextura Plus technology. The enduro model has an additional Velcro closure and a ratchet to secure your feet. The downhill shoe has a more robust sole, an ankle guard and laces. Both shoes are 129.90 €.
