Giant XtC Advanced 27.5+

Giant’s new XtC Advanced 27.5+ is a versatile, high-performance carbon-fiber hardtail. It comes fitted with plus-sized 27.5+ tires that provide excellent traction in all conditions and a smooth ride, making it the perfect choice for singletrack adventuring. But a simple tire swap transforms it into a race-oriented 29er. And horizontal rear drop-outs mean you can even run it as a singlespeed. Essentially three bikes in one, it’s a perfect choice for riders who love options, but have trouble committing. [From $2,800; giant-bicycles.com]
