Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Marcelo Gutierrez came into the 2015 season with high hopes and a secret weapon: the all-new Glory Advanced 27.5. From the very first time he rode it, Marcelo had a special feeling about the bike, and about the season to come.
And what a season it turned out to be. In just his second World Cup race on the new composite machine—which features the same dialed geometry as the aluminum Glory he raced last year, but with a lighter, smoother riding chassis—Marcelo made the podium. It was a historic moment, not just for him but also for his country, as Marcelo was the first Colombian to stand on a World Cup DH podium. He did that twice in 2015—at Fort William, Scotland, and Mont-Sainte-Anne, Quebec—and also won the Garbanzo DH title at Crankworx Whistler.
With the added boost of confidence and control, Marcelo made 2015 his best season yet. Are you ready for that boost? Then you’re ready for the new Glory Advanced 27.5!
