It’s true that Giant is the world’s largest producer of high-quality bikes, but we never forget where we came from. We started small. And we were founded on the idea that the best way to inspire passion for cycling is to create the best products, and make them accessible to all riders. That’s what we did back then. That’s what we do today.

Much has changed since we started in 1972. In fact, Giant has long been one of cycling’s main catalysts for change. We introduced lighter, stronger aluminum frames at a time when the industry standard was steel. We were first to make carbon fiber bikes widely available to the world. We defined the look and feel of modern road racing bikes with our Compact Road technology. And we revolutionized off-road performance bikes with Maestro Suspension. Ride Life. Ride Giant.
