Aim for the XC podium. Crush an off-road marathon. This all-new lightweight composite flyer features updated Maestro rear suspension and new 29er geometry for pure XC speed and efficiency.
Here’s the perfect recipe for a high-performance XC dream machine. Start with a superlight Advanced-grade composite chassis featuring new geometry designed for fast-rolling 29-inch wheels, 90mm of rear suspension travel, and 100mm up front. Add the most updated Maestro suspension system, including a new trunnion mount shock for a supple feel and improved pedaling efficiency, plus the super light and stiff Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm. Plus Boost hub spacing for stiffer wheels to give you more control on technical terrain. Put it all together, and you get the all-new Anthem Advanced 29, a next-generation XC crusher that’s loaded with smooth-rolling stability and confidence for fast, technical terrain.
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system.
High-performance grade raw carbon fiber and custom resin is used to produce this high-quality frame in Giant’s own composite factory. Handcrafted monocoque construction makes it extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant.
Updated “long and low” XC frame geometry is tailored for 29-inch wheels to optimize control, acceleration and stability.
Wider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
A state-of-the-art, high-pressure molding process is used to produce complex shaped carbon-fiber components that are lighter, stiffer and stronger than similar aluminum components.
New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedaling and braking efficiency, plus a lower center of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility.
A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Engineered with proprietary Dynamic Balanced Lacing technology, Giant’s all-new XCR Composite WheelSystem delivers superior efficiency, pinpoint control and engineered durability.
