Founded in Taichung, Taiwan in 1972, Giant Bicycles is recognized as the world’s largest bike manufacturer. The company’s first major breakthrough into OEM manufacturing came in 1977 when it began making some models for Schwinn. Giant currently operates manufacturing facilities in China, Taiwan, Hungary and The Netherlands, and is in the process of building a factory in Vietnam. Giant’s U.S. headquarters is located in Newbury Park, California.
The company launched its house bike brand in 1981, and later established its Liv/Giant women’s brand in 2008 (renamed Liv
Cycling in 2014), its line of lifestyle bikes under the Momentum moniker in 2015, and its CADEX component line in 2019. Giant introduced its first electric bike in late 2016.
Giant has been at the forefront of innovation in the bike industry, including introducing lighter, stronger aluminum frames when steel was the norm, making carbon fiber frames widely available, defining the look and feel of modern road bikes with its Compact Road technology, and introducing mountain bikes designed around the Maestro Suspension platform.
