Giant's all new Anthem Advanced 29 1 features an Advanced carbon composite front triangle as an upgrade over the Anthem 29 1. Component highlights include Rock Shox SiD RL forks with remote lockout, Rock Shox Deluxe RT rear shock, Shimano SLX 1x11 drivetrain, Giant XCR 1 composite wheels and Shimano M6000 hydraulic brakes.

New for 2018, Giant's Anthem Advanced 29 1 brings a superfast Race/XC option to the Anthem range. Designed to be super efficient, stable and responsive the Anthem 29 is an XC weapon. With 100mm fork travel and 90mm rear wheel travel the Anthem doesn't carry any excess soft suspension, it's got enough travel to conquer any modern XC course but won't waste your energy with power sapping movement you don't need. The Giant Anthem 29's geometry is 29" wheel specific and coupled to the excellent rollover characteristics of the larger wheel size offers you amazing stability when the going gets rough.

The Giant Anthem Advanced 29 1 uses Giant's Advanced composite to create a superlight frameset with excellent stiffness for pinpoint steering and efficient power transfer. Designed around Giant's renowned Maestro system the rear suspension combines excellent sensitivity with a shock curve that can handle bigger hits too whilst being exceptionally well isolated from pedal inputs. The rear shock features a Trunnion mount and links to the frame by a super stiff Advanced forged composite linkage which means smoother suspension movement and less frame flex. As you'd expect the frame and fork feature Boost wheel spacing and bolt through axles for maximum stiffness.

If want a bike that is going to get you round a modern XC course faster than ever then the Giant Anthem Advanced 29 1 is perfect for the job. Of course, it's not just a race bike and will be a blast on your local XC trails too. A true XC weapon.

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.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
