Giant Press Release:

EDDIE LAWSON TEAMS UP WITH GIANT BICYCLE USA

Giant Bicycle USA recently collaborated with four-time motorcycle Grand Prix World Champion Eddie Lawson for a video project featuring a Giant E-bike. A lifelong mountain bike rider, Lawson climbed aboard a Giant Trance E+ 1 Pro and was immediately impressed.  

“A friend of mine had one and he let me try it and I was hooked. I had to have one,” said Lawson, who rides daily in the rugged desert terrain in Arizona where he lives.

“It used to be I’d get up in the morning and say ‘I should go train on my mountain bike.’ Now I get up and can’t wait to go for a ride. That’s the difference.”

The Trance E+ 1 Pro is a full suspension E-mountain bike that offers a whole new way to tackle technical singl-etrack trails. The SyncDrive Pro motor gives the Trance E+ Pro rider a massive 80Nm of torque and 360% of tuneable support. That means the rider can dial his E-bike with full pedal assist power or tune it less aggressively.

“Eddie is the best athlete ambassador E-biking can have,” said John “JT” Thompson, general manager of Giant Bicycle USA. “He knows superior technology and craftsmanship, and he certainly knows how to put a two-wheeled machine to the test. Eddie is the perfect rider to help spread the joy of E-bikes.”

“The great thing about E-bikes is you can work as hard or as easy as you want,” Lawson said. “An E-bike is a great training tool, and it’s also a lot of fun.”
