The Giant Anthem Advanced 27.5 1 offers a Shimano XT groupset, XCR composite wheel systems and Contact SL components as upgrades of the Anthem Advanced 27.5 2.
Giant's Anthem has always been our favourite fast trail bike. The super versatile Anthem can be used for a wide range of riding from XC racing to trail centres which makes it perfect for many UK riders. The heart of the anthem is its 100mm Maestro suspension system which uses careful pivot point placement to give plush and controlled suspension travel whilst offering excellent pedaling efficiency. Advanced composite tubing not only keeps the weight down but maximises lateral stiffness and damps out small vibrations which a suspension system can't react to. By choosing the Advanced frame over the aluminium version you'll get a lighter, more comfortable and more responsive ride. The fast and accurate handling of the Anthem's frame is perfectly matched by its 27.5 wheels which offer great roll over characteristics on rough ground whilst keeping high maneuverability.
The Anthem Advanceds 27.5 1's groupset is Shimano's legendary XT system. Upated for 2016, Shimano XT is now 11 speed offering a huge range of gearing whilst running just a single chainring. XT brakes combine a super smooth action, great stopping power and low weight. Fox Float forks and rear shock are fitted to the Anthem Advanced 27.5 1 both units have a Kashima coating to reduce friction and increase durability. The Fox Float fork is also equipped with a remote lockout lever.
If you are looking for a super fast and versatile XC bike with one of the very best framesets available and the very latest in gear and suspension components then the Anthem Advanced 27.5 1 is one of the best options available.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
