Giant launch first ever suspension fork
Giant have made history by announcing their first-ever suspension fork in the form of the Crest 34.
While it won’t be available as a standalone product, the 2020 Fathom 29 2 model will swap its Suntour fork for the Crest 34 later this year.
It marks a potential groundbreaking change for the MTB colossus over the coming years but it’s safe to say they are still testing the water.
Some of the highlights include:
Stiff alloy chassis
Thixomolding casting to provide a balanced strength-to-weight ratio
Ramp adjustable twin air spring
Newly-developed adjustable damper
The Crest 34 will only be specced on the Fathom 29 2 as of October 2019. Giant will make separate forks available for repairs but riders will have to wait and see if the brand decides to make a bigger move into the fork market in future.
