Overview

XC RACE, MARATHON, ANOTHER WEEKEND EPIC. FOR THOSE WHO DO IT ALL, AND WANT TO DO IT A LITTLE FASTER, THE ALL-NEW ANTHEM X IS THE ANSWER.

Its versatility makes it one of the staples in Giant’s performance off-road family. The lightweight ALUXX SL frameset is a FluidForm work of art with all the right angles. Add 4 inches of Maestro Suspension travel and new features like a PressFit bottom bracket for stiffness and a tapered OverDrive headtube for pinpoint steering, and you have an off-road bike that’s lightweight enough to race and tough enough to rail nasty descents week in and week out.

WeightThe most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All Giant bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
