5 Giant Reign 29ers, 5 completely different builds! From a stock flagship Giant Reign Adv Pro 0 all the way to a Reign 29 frame up custom build.

The new platform Giant Reign 29er was unvailed in 2020 has been a popular favorite here at Evo (and around the world) ever since. An Enduro beast, this bike is as capable as any on the decent and climbs particulary well for a long travel bike on the way up. It's available in a range of build options off the shop floor in both alloy and carbon, so there's a model to suit every rider and budget.

The Nelson crew seem to be particulary fond of the Reign 29er, and have seen some wild builds in the past year. Below is a selction of our favorite Reigns to pass through the showroom (in no particular order).
