Product Details

Giant Anthem 2 2017

One of the most agile XC full-suspension mountain bikes, now updated with Boost hub spacing, an advanced Forged Composite Upper Rocker and Fox shox

'The quick and agile Anthem XC bike is updated this year with a new Trunnion Mount Maestro rear suspension system for even smoother trail performance. The new Advanced Forged composite rocker arm adds strength, giving you 110mm of smooth, active rear travel. The lightweight ALUXX SL aluminium frame is engineered specifically for 27.5 wheels and a 120mm suspension fork. New this year is Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear), which improves wheel stiffness for added control, while adding tyre clearance and improving drivetrain performance. The frame also features Giant's OverDrive steerer tube for razor-sharp handling, plus a PowerCore bottom bracket for maximum pedalling stiffness and power transfer.

Giant Maestro Full Suspension Mountain Bikes 2017
Maestro is Giant’s award winning suspension platform, which we stock at three levels: 110mm travel Anthem (XC), 140mm-travel Trance (trail) and 160mm travel Reign (enduro).

Being built from scratch as only Giant know how, Maestro full suspension mountain bikes have always been great value. For 2017 Giant have met the challenge of how to make great bikes better by making the frames longer and lower, and the chainstays shorter. Every Giant Maestro model has now adopted the Boost standard for improved wheel strength, stability and tyre clearance. The result: a rig that's more controllable, better tuned for aggressive trail riding and even more fun to ride.

Trunion Mount
For 2017, every Giant Anthem and Trance model has been upgraded with a Trunnion composite shock mount. Bolting the rear shock to this stiffer more compact mount optimises the damping so the tyres grip better, the bike tracks truer and the suspension is more resistant to bottoming out on landings.
