Introducing the Anthem X 29er W
It's finally here, the first full-suspension 29er built specifically for women. The all-new Anthem X 29er W was created for one reason: to give women XC riders the confidence and performance of 29-inch wheels. More speed, stability and control on every trail.
This oversized fork steerer-tube design provides front-end stiffness and precision steering. The tapered design uses oversized bearings (1 1/8-inch top, 1 1/2-inch bottom) for a 15 percent gain in stiffness over straight steerer tubes.
A guiding principle that’s at the heart of every Liv/giant bike: Fit, Form, Function. The Anthem X 29er W features women’s-specific frame geometry (shorter, more sloping top tube) and components (lighter wheels, narrower handlebars, women’s-specific saddle and grips) to optimize performance for women trail riders.
Lightweight, stiff and extremely durable, ALUXX SL premium alloy is produced in Giant’s own forging facility. It’s 30 percent stiffer than traditional 6061-series aluminum, so engineers can use less materials in the tubes to save weight without sacrificing strength or durability.
A massive rectangular-shaped downtube and oversized toptube form the heart of the Anthem X 29er W frameset. This design produces superior front-end lateral and torsional stiffness for more precise handling and more efficient pedaling performance.
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages make Maestro the most active and efficient suspension system in the world. With its linear spring curve and near vertical wheel path, it’s sensitive to small bumps and smooth on bigger hits. And the floating pivot point allows Maestro to remain active, even under heavy braking.
Fit, Form, Function
Like all Liv/giant bikes, the Anthem X 29er W employs the 3F design philosophy, which stands for Fit, Form and Function. The top tube is shorter and slopes lower, which suits a female trail rider’s lower center of gravity. It also increases clearance, for more confidence and control on the trail. The lightweight ALUXX SL frame with Maestro Suspension is available in a wide range of sizes, from extra small to large.
