About Giant Anthem 1 2018
The Anthem is built on a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame that’s specifically engineered for quick and agile 27.5 inch wheels. It features the latest Maestro rear suspension design with a trunnion mount shock for smoother trail performance and an Advanced Forged upper rocker arm for added stiffness. It features an updated 130mm suspension fork up front and Boost hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear), which improves wheel stiffness for even more control. The OverDrive steerer tube gives it a stiff front end for razor sharp steering, and the Power Core bottom bracket maximises pedalling stiffness and power transfer.
