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.

It was a long time coming but the inaugural Mudgee Classic finally became a reality on the weekend with more than 2000 riders lapping up the major cycling event.
