The Boulder is Giant's most affordable mountain bike which is good for casual trail or urban riding and is available in a women's version as well. This and the Boulder SE make up the entry-level Lifestyle series from Giant, with overall weight going down and component quality going up as you move up to the higher priced series. The main difference between the Boulder and Boulder SE is the frame which is made of supersized steel, compared to the SE which has a lighter ALUXX-Grade Butted Aluminum frame also found in the Yukon, Yukon FX and Rincon bikes. Six sizes are available as well as a color choice of blue or white(street version with different tires), and the women's version has been designed with a different frame and is available in pearl white with aqua trim. Updated specs for each version are included below, although current models include components such as Spinner Grind 1 fork, Shimano EF-50 trigger shifters, Shimano Altus rear derailleur and a choice of MTB Trail 26x2.1 tires with the blue version and Kenda K-Rad 26x2.1 tires with the white version.
