COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information
Due to a combination of new working practices and demand our lead times for both collection and delivery have been extended.
Please check the estimated delivery or collection times next to the relevant size, these will be updated as our workshop load changes.
Please note that lead times are quoted in "working days" so do not include weekends or bank holidays.
For in store collections where a bicycle is shown as being "available", please call the store for an accurate lead time as these bicycles still need processing through the workshop.
Size Options & Purchase
The Giant Anthem 29 1 offers a RockShox SID Select+ fork, Rock Shox Deluxe Select + rear shock, XT drivetrain components and XCR composite wheels as upgrades over the Anthem 29 2.
Giant's Anthem has always been one of our favourites. Perfect for XC racing or fast trail riding Anthem has always been fast, efficient and purposeful. The latest 29" wheel incarnation continue the ethos pf being light, tight and super responsive.
Built on an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this 29er delivers speed, balance and control on fast, technical XC terrain. It's optimized for larger-diameter wheels with an updated Maestro suspension system that's configured for a tighter rear triangle. The geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on climbs and descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces a smooth, supple feel with improved pedalling efficiency. An Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminium version. And Boost wider hub spacing improves wheel stiffness for better control in rugged XC terrain.
MAESTRO SUSPENSION - Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system.
ALUXX SL ALUMINUM - State-of-the-art aluminium frameset material features best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios and unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.
29-SPECIFIC GEOMETRY - Updated "long and low" XC frame geometry is tailored for 29-inch wheels to optimize control, acceleration and stability.
BOOST TECHNOLOGY - Wider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
ADVANCED FORGED COMPOSITE UPPER ROCKER ARM - A state-of-the-art, high-pressure moulding process is used to produce complex shaped carbon-fibre components that are lighter, stiffer and stronger than similar aluminium components.
TRUNNION MOUNT - New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedalling and braking efficiency, plus a lower centre of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility.
POWERCORE - A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92mm wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
MEGADRIVE - A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedalling stiffness.
Choose Anthem for speed.
Please note: This model features tubeless ready wheels and tyres which offer a superior ride and less rolling resistance than traditional innertubes. This system requires tyre sealant to function correctly and this will be fitted in our workshop prior to despatch. The nature of this sealant means that the tyre may not be fully sealed until it has been ridden a short distance and therefore the bicycle may arrive with reduced pressure in the tyres. Please check the bicycle's tyres are inflated to the recommended pressure before cycling. Should you wish for the bicycle to be supplied with inner tubes fitted rather being set up tubeless please contact us after placing your order.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicycles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and responsibility on which size to purchase is yours.
