GIANT’S WORLD CUP PROS LOVE RIPPING FAST TRAIL RIDES NEARLY AS MUCH AS THEY DO WINNING XC RACES. WITH THIS BIKE, THEY DO BOTH.
Start with an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset, a hydro-formed work of art with all the right angles, then add 4 inches of active Maestro travel and you get an XC race bike that’s light enough to waltz up nasty climbs and stable enough to rail rutted descents. Test editors everywhere agree with Giant pros: Anthem X nails it.
Key upgrades (from Anthem X2):
RockShox SID Team, 100mm suspension fork and Fox Float RP23 rear shock
Shimano Deore XT/XTR 27 speed components
Giant Contact seat post, stem and handlebar
Shimano XT wheel set
SIZES: S (16”), M (18”), L (20”)
- COLOUR: Red/Black
|Weight||How much does this bike weigh? It’s a common question, and rightly so. But the truth is, there are no industry standards for claiming bike weights—and this leads to a lot of misinformation. Variances exist based on size, frame material, finish and hardware. And as bikes get lighter, these differences become more critical. At Giant, we believe the only way to truly know the weight of any particular bike is to find out for yourself at your local retailer.|
