When you’re unsure what lies ahead—smooth roads, gravel or dirt—and you relish the adventure of quiet backroads, this is the bike. With its lightweight aluminum frame, drop handlebars and rugged, high-volume tires, you’re ready for anything.
Your ride doesn’t end when the pavement ends. That’s when things start to get fun. A lightweight ALUXX SLR aluminum frame, smooth-handling composite fork, and drop-bar positioning make ToughRoad SLR GX the right choice for rolling into the unknown. The smooth-rolling 700c wheels are fitted with high-volume 50c Giant tubeless tires, which allow you to run lower tire pressure for comfort and traction plus a reduced risk of flat tires. The D-Fuse seatpost absorbs road vibration to help minimize fatigue on long rides. And powerful disc brakes with 160mm rotors give you added confidence and control on rough roads and in all types of weather. Thoughtful details including integrated rack mounts and the X-Defender downtube complete the package, making ToughRoad SLR GX the perfect machine for tackling imperfect roads.
