Bought one of these recently, not sure if I've seen any reviews on it but I really like it. There seems to be more info / videos on the full sus Trance models. Been to the local Quantock Hills a couple times now and had some fun. Syndrive Pro gives great assistance, not sure if its any better than the Syndrive Sport model? Rockshox Revelation RC Debonair front fork seems fine for the basic rides I've done. Love the neon yellow colour. Anyone else bought one of these...? Should I have gone for a full sus.....? Maybe a couple years from now when I've learnt the basic...!

I have the Dirt E pro+1 which I think is the previous model and very simular. I really like it

Yes, just looked at the Dirt E+1 pro, looks very similar, what sort of pressure do you put in the tyres...? I've found power 1 is ample, 2 more so, then 3 for up hills but cant really feel additional power from mode 4 & 5. Have you found that...?

I'm running just under 30 but I a 110kgs and use the bike for forest/fire road stuff nothing too techy( I have a full suss for that)
I use eco and basic most of the time(1&2) Active(3) for the hills and sport and power now and again but more for fun than need. There is a difference but I think as the Giant has 5 modes its a more steady increase.
If you haven't already, you can play around with the power levels but using the phone app

Did yours come setup tubeless already? Mine hasnt phoned and they tried to say they dont come tubeless setup on the pro!! After 5 minutes he conceded the giant ad says they do so is sending me the latex and valves!! Not a good start lol .. i see range is better than the suspension models too.. 136 km v 116 on the stance

My hardtail E+1 pro came set up tubeless. Had good ride at Haldon forest near Exeter last Saturday. Just under 30k on blue and red runs and 40+% left on battery so plenty for what i need.
