Different frame, flip chip, magnetic charger cover, ability to use range extender, 29” wheels, better waterproofing on the down tube and more. It looks quite different to me.doesnt seem an awful lot different to 2020, bigger battery, and longer travel seatpost? (comparing the +2 pro)
Well, if it gets deleted I'll just post it back up again. I took screen shots of your screen shots, in anticipation!I anticipated this would occur so I did screenshots... If this is not allowed please delete.
I had a Reign for a couple of weeks and the magnetic cover, which this appears to be, was the only thing I was jealous of !Well, if it gets deleted I'll just post it back up again. I took screen shots of your screen shots, in anticipation!
Glad they finally changed the rubber cover for the charging port. The one on my 2019 Trance flicks open too easily even when my left leg slightly brushes up against it. The new one looks like a decent improvement.

Agree. It just says the display is compatible.
It’s a basic crappy display like the Bosch Purion.
Giant have had time to really develop a nice colour screen with stats. Like Bosch Kiox but they haven’t.
Wow that looks awesome.there is a new one coming with new city e-bikes, RideControl Evo (new version) with new color screen with more actual look
Wow that looks awesome.
In saying that it’s a shame Giant didn’t change the Ride Controller for that nice screen.
For the Bosch Kiox screen they have 4 buttons:
1. + and - for Power Control settings
2. Left and Right buttons to scroll the Menu.
Also Kiox has Strava comparability
Don’t get me wrong I really want to get this new Trance X E+ 1 as it’s kitted up nice. The equivalent Trek Rail 9 is estimated to cost $1450 more and it’s running Sram GX and Code R brakes. That’s similar to XT gear.
to get an equivalent computer I might have to get a Garmin 530 that will cost $500. So the gap is bridged potentially.
The Bosch Kiox for the Rail is mounted on the top tube. Some other bikes have them on the stem bolt.I'm not very sure how worth is to have that kind of screen on a enduro bike, considering the crashes, dirt, muddy days, branches... there is the option to install the current EVO display...or even the new small screen ant+...it doesn't look so nice but is good enough for me.
If you compare gears I'm not really happy with the GX on my Trance E+ 1 2019...the trance 29" has XTR which in my opinion is much better than GX
Yes I’m disappointed the 0 has been dropped and wasn’t a fan of 1.Wish Giant would hurry up and release this now!!!
Am happy with spec of the new 1 (Fox, XT, XTR) just not a fan of the silver color, but that will not deter me. Just getting impatient lol. Would love to see more on the geometry specs before I commit.Yes I’m disappointed the 0 has been dropped and wasn’t a fan of 1.
As a result I’ve put down a deposit for a 2020 Merida E160 10k. Fox Factory suspension and XTR drivetrain. Got a good deal on that and with 2 504W batteries that’s good enough for me.
I think 9th september finish the embargoAm happy with spec of the new 1 (Fox, XT, XTR) just not a fan of the silver color, but that will not deter me. Just getting impatient lol. Would love to see more on the geometry specs before I commit.
Was on the site thinking holy crap they raised the price big time but then remembered this is in Australia (I'm in the US)
In the States, our prices dropped, and the spec has improved. Maybe it's a currency thing. Either way the water is a real problem for some. My 2019 has been beat senseless and drowned in mud and yet still lives.I am a loyal Giant customer. Here’s my current bikes.
I was always worried about water ingress and ride control failures in 19 and 20 models and how the motor hangs below the crank.
I was hanging out for 21 to improve.
In 2020 the Trance e+0 was running X01 and Fox Factory.
in 2021 the 1 is now running XT and Fox Performance Elite. So it’s been despecced for the same money.
A few weeks ago I put down a deposit on a 2020 Merida E160 10k. It’s running XTR drivetrain and brakes and Fox Factory and Carbon frame.
I rang my Giant LBS to say I won’t be getting the new Trance now. Kinda felt bad but I am happy with my decision.
