The Giant Anthem SX 27.5 1 offers a SRAM X1 groupset, SRAM Guide Trail brakes, Contact SL components and Rock Shox fork and shock as upgrades over the Anthem SX 27.5 2.
Giant's Anthem has always been our favourite fast trail bike. It's super versatile and can be used for a wide range of riding from XC racing to trail centres which makes it perfect for many UK riders. The SX version uses a 120mm front fork to shift that versatile performance range from XC riding to more challenging trails whilst retaining that fast handling and responsive ride Anthem has always had. 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. Aluxx SL tubing is used to keep the stiffness to weight ratio high and an Overdrive tapered steerer maximizes steering precision. The 27.5" wheels fitted to Anthem SXs perfectly match the bike's primary goal, fast and maneuverable.
Anthem SX models also come fitted Giant's award winning Contact SL Switch R dropper seatpost giving you more control and confidence on steep pitches.
The Giant Anthem SX 27.5 1 comes with SRAM's new X1 1x11 groupset which offers a the simplicity of a single chainring setup with the huge gear range of a 10-42 cassette. Guide brakes, renowned as some of the most powerful around, do the stopping. A Rock Shox Revelation RL fork and Monarch RT Debonair rear shock provide the suspension. The Debonair rear shock uses a larger volume air shock than usual to give a more coil like shock feel whilst retaining the low weight and tenability of an air shock.
The Giant Anthem SX 27.5 1 is perfect for aggressive XC riders who value control on technical sections above all else.
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.
