The All-New Giant Anthem 29er
This all-new Anthem 29 range marks a strong commitment to uncompromising XC speed, efficiency, and control. “This bike is clearly designed for racing,” says Giant Factory Off-Road Team pro Carl Decker. “But the beauty of it is that, with its active and smooth-riding suspension and super stable geometry, it’s also just a fun bike to go rip trails on. Doesn’t matter if you’re pinning a number on or you just want to go faster and farther out in the woods—it’s perfect for heading out and having fun on XC trails and terrain.”
Here's an overview of the three series in the new Anthem 29 range:
ANTHEM ADVANCED PRO 29 (starting at $4,900): The flagship model of the new Anthem 29 range is engineered with a full Advanced Composite frameset, including the mainframe and rear swingarm. Aimed at serious racers and riders seeking an added edge in pedaling efficiency, suspension performance and overall handling on rugged XC terrain, it’s the lightest 29er full-suspension frame ever produced by Giant.
ANTHEM ADVANCED 29 ($3,900): This XC race-oriented series features all the same suspension updates and new, 29er-specific frame geometry as the Anthem Advanced Pro 29 series. The key difference is this one is built with an Advanced-grade composite main frame mated to an ALUXX SL aluminum rear swingarm.
ANTHEM 29 ($3,750): This new 29er features an ALUXX SL aluminum frameset that is totally reengineered and optimized for the large-diameter wheels. Like all models in the Anthem 29 range, the updated Maestro Suspension system is configured for a tighter rear triangle, giving it a quicker, more agile feel on the trail.
The Anthem 29 will start shipping in August. This full on XC weapon will go fast. Come by any Bicycle World location to learn more about the bike and reserve yours today!
