GIANT REIGN SX 1 (2019)


Giant have bought back the Reign SX for the 2019 season. And it’s one of a handful of bikes that caught us by surprise at this years product launch. 


The SX has been an acronym (we don’t actually know what it stands for) representing a far more aggressive product line. Like Specialized have the Evo, and Rocky Mountain has the BC Edition or Rally Edition.


The SX bikes are generally more gravity-focussed mountain bikes. 


WHAT’S THE REIGN SX ALL ABOUT?

So, compared to the standard Reign product line, the Reign SX is different in 2 aspects - the amount of suspension and the type of suspension. 


Giant has increased front fork travel from 170mm on the Reign to 180mm on the Reign SX. This has slackened the head tube angle from 64.5 degrees to 64.0 degrees, respectively. It’s also increased the Trail from 120mm to 123mm. 


What does this mean?


Better high-speed stability and control. An increase in Trail for the Reign SX means that riders are also less likely to lose the front end or wash out. 


Is this the bike to pick to ride at Lysterfield Park? Absolutely. No. 


But if you go riding Copperhead at Buller, visit Stromlo mountain bike park, ride at Red Hill or a trip to epic mountain bike parks such as Maydena in Tassie - the Reign SX is for you. 


And if all you care about is the downhill experience, then you’ll fall in love with the new DVO suspension products. 


DVO SUSPENSION

Giant used DVO as a suspension partner for key models of mountain bikes this season to attain a higher level of suspension performance from these bikes. It’s a collaboration that’s been in the making for the last 2 years. And it’s been painstaking work to make the Reign better than it was. 


So on the Reign SX 1, the front end impacts are handled by the new DVO Onyx SC (single crown) suspension fork. It’s essentially a single crown version of their DH fork. It’s got both high and low-speed compression adjustments and their OTT adjustment feature. OTT stands for Off The Top and controls stiffness in the first part of the suspension’s stroke. 


There’s a DVO Jade Coil rear shock out the back. This is a very high-end suspension product that most riders will not have been exposed to. The benefits and features of a coil shock are:


1/ Smoother small bump compliance. The Jade Coil has minimal initial stiction compared to the competition. 


2/ A bladder style internal design helps eliminate cavitation and retain performance on long descents. 


3/ Low and high compression allow riders to adjust (perfectly) the feel of the shock at the start and end of the shock’s stroke. 


So, keep in mind, if you’re considering buying a Reign SX then you’re buying a high-level performance suspension system. But, you’ve also got to spend the time learning how to get the most out it too. 


WHO IS THE REIGN SX 1 FOR?

For riders who are focussed on riding technical gravity trails such as Mount Buller, Red Hill or proper Bike Parks such as Maydena. 


At 160mm rear wheel travel, the travel still allows riders to be able to climb. It’s not going to be the most efficient trail bike. But, as long as you’re climbing gentle or steep smooth fire roads, the Reign SX will be fine.
