Downhill racing is a whole different beast—with insane rock gardens, gnarly ruts and roots, crazy drops, and often uncontrollable speeds, you need to have as much confidence in your bike as you do in yourself. And the Demo 8 I Carbon gives you the confidence you need to get down the run as quickly as possible. When it comes to the stiffness, light weight, and strength required for downhill, you just can't beat a carbon fiber frame construction. That's while you'll find some of our best carbon fiber, FACT 10m, was used to create the acclaimed Demo 8 I Carbon. It's also been built off of our S3 27.5 geometry, ensuring a roomy top tube for added control, ultra-short, nimble chainstays, a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted, and a slack front end that provides the utmost in responsive handling at speed. For suspension, this Demo features 200mm up front via a RockShox BoXXer RC 27.5 and 200mm of travel at the rear controlled by our revolutionary Öhlins rear shock. Together, the combo ensures that you'll be able to rocket over any terrain with confidence. And when you add in a build kit consisting of SRAM's powerful Guide R brakes, a durable one-by SRAM drivetrain, and our legendary Butcher & Slaughter DH tires, you start get the picture of why our Demo 8s have won so many races. - The frame features a full FACT 10m carbon fiber construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness, which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access. This has also been paired with our proven S3 Geometry that increases maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride. - RockShox BoXXer RC 27.5 fork is purposefully designed for the most demanding terrain on earth. With 200mm of travel, Motion Control IS damping for maximum efficiency, and Power Buldge reinforced lower legs that allow oversized bushings for incredible stiffness, it'll leave you with nothing but confidence. - The clutched SRAM GX rear derailleur all but eliminates dropped chains, so you're able to rail through rock gardens while still being able to sprint out of them.

With 203mm of fully active Maestro Suspension featuring a trunnion-mount shock, the Glory 27.5 has been tested and proven by some of the top DH racers and gravity riders in the world. Its lightweight, super-strong frame is engineered with geometry that’s optimized for its 27.5 wheels, plus a super stiff OverDrive steerer tube for unwavering control and steering precision. The 63-degree headtube angle and longer wheelbase was developed and refined with riders from the Giant Factory Off-Road Team to excel on the steepest, most extreme DH tracks in the world.
The new Demo 29 comes roaring out of the gates with multiple World Cup wins already under its belt. New chassis, new suspension kinematics, new geometry, and, yeah, new wheel size. We’ve hung the Race model with the best gravity kit available. Full gas. Full fast. SMOOTH AND CONTROLLED The new Demo 29 is blazing fast on tough tracks thanks to an axle path that reduces rear wheel hang up. And during moments when you do need to grab the brakes, the Demo 29 stays planted—with plenty of traction—we’ve added just the right amount of anti-rise to the mix. FAST ON THE GAS When every second counts, every pedal stroke counts. The Demo 29’s new design allows for just the right amount of anti-squat. Or to put a finer point on it, you crank on the pedals and the Demo 29 rips forward instead of bobbing around uncontrollably and slowing you down. - M5 alloy construction works in harmony with our Style-Specific DH Geometry to create the ultimate race machine. The design is compact in order to increase maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking big hits in stride. And to fill out all of the details that make the difference on race day, we’ve included an ISCG ‘05 mount for chain guides and all the bits to make it easy to work on. - Custom Ohlins TTX Trunnion rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance. It offers high-/low-speed compression adjust that stands independent of the rebound adjust, enabling you to fine-tune the shock for the track at hand. It has 200mm of coil-sprung travel that stands without rival, and you won't find it anywhere else. - The Ohlins DH 29 fork features a Twin-Tube design, an air spring with an adjustable third chamber, adjustable high-/low-speed compression and rebound, and 200mm of trail-taming travel.
