The Yukon is an entry level off-road sport bike from Giant that comes with a lightweight ALUXX-Grade aluminum frame and is available in six sizes in either brushed/blue or brushed/orange. This a good starter bike for the beginning enthusiast wishing for pro-level features or anyone wanting to do casual trail/terrain riding. The most important element is the frame which has been made with hydroforming technology which allows for a more aerodynamic shape as seen in higher priced bikes. Newer models have also switched to a RockShox Dart 1 fork from the original Suntour XCM which has improved the front end although still heavy compared to more expensive forks. Shimano Alivio Rapidfire shifters are included as well as Shimano Acera front and Deore rear derailleurs. Other Giant parts include XC Alloy rims, formula disc hub and wheelset.
