Giant Anthem 27.5 SX 1 2016 Bike
Giant started out building Chromoly frames in 1972 and have since pioneered the construction of Aluminium and Composite frames and components. Many of their high-end bikes have won championships and design awards, and with over 12,000 Giant dealers around the world, their long standing reputation clearly precedes them.
The Anthem 27.5 SX is a nimble medium-travel full suspension bike featuring a lightweight ALUXX SL-Grade Alloy frame with 120mm travel up front and 100mm in the rear. It's a great choice for technical XC racecourses or remote singletrack adventure. The frame also features Giant's proven 27.5 geometry for razor sharp handling, plus a PowerCore bottom bracket for maximum pedalling stiffness and power transfer. It's fitted with a 1x11 SRAM X1 drivetrain and Guide RS hydraulic brakes for all-round superb control.
