WHEN IT'S ALL ABOUT STAYING AT THE FRONT OF THE PACK, THIS XC DREAM MACHINE DELIVERS LIGHTNING FAST SPEED AND CONTROL.
This XC legend returns with big updates for 2017. Featuring an updated platform with 110mm of rear suspension travel and 120mm up front, plus the superior all-round performance of 27.5-inch wheels, the new Anthem Advanced delivers lighter weight, better efficiency and improved control.
The rear suspension features an all-new trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged composite rocker arm for added strength and stiffness. All-new, wider Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance. For riders seeking the lightest, fastest and most efficient Maestro-equipped Giant, this is the ultimate XC speed machine.
