Giant Anthem Advanced 1 27.5-Inch 2018 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 Advanced slices up the trail and disappears out of sight before the leaves even settle. Low travel chassis, long wheelbase, massive gear range, minimal weight, aggressive ride position - All key elements to produce a lightning fast XC whip with unyielding control.
The Anthem Advanced 1 uses a 27.5-inch wheel as opposed to 29-inch, for those who wish to retain a certain element of versatility on their XC bike. While 29ers undoubtedly get the job done in terms of distance and small obstacle clearance, 27.5-inch wheels bring in the wheelbase for more nimble cornering, and have the chassis planted slightly closer to the ground whilst simultaneously allowing more travel on a frame of the same geometry.
Featuring SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 gearing, Fox Performance Elite suspension, Giant TRX Carbon Boost wheels with Maxxis XC performance tyres, Giant dropper post, plus more - all fitted to an Advanced Grade Composite frame. No messing about. This is a 27.5" XC bike you can really count on for competition use or for adrenaline-pumping free roams with comrades.
