Anthem’s smooth XC performance, amplified for aggressive trails. Fast climbs, even faster descents.
At the core of this race-bred rocketship is a 27.5-specific ALUXX SL frameset—the lightest alloy full suspension bike
Giant has ever produced. Radically hydroformed and using the latest lightweight Maestro co-pivot design, the
Anthem 27.5 frameset pushes aluminum full suspension technology to new limits of weight, strength and performance.
