Product Details

2017 Giant Anthem 2

From steep climbs to technical descents, this updated XC ninja lets you do it all and do it faster. The quick and agile Anthem 2 is updated this year with a new trunnion-mount Maestro rear suspension system for even smoother trail performance. The new Advanced Forged composite rocker arm adds strength, giving you 110mm of smooth, active rear travel. The lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame is engineered specifically for 27.5 wheels and a 120mm suspension fork. New this year is Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear), which improves wheel stiffness for added control, while adding tire clearance and improving drivetrain performance. The frame also features Giant’s OverDrive steerer tube for razor-sharp handling, plus a PowerCore bottom bracket for maximum pedaling stiffness and power transfer.

      I bought this bike to get back in the game so to speak after several years away from the sport. The Anthem 2 is a great bike to really step into the game. It's not to expensive that you have to sell a kidney and still comes with some nice parts and featured. It's also easily upgradeable. I've been running this bike now for a year and a half and each time it performs very well and comes back asking for more.
