The super light and quick Anthem Advanced frame, with its Advanced-grade composite front triangle made specifically for 26.5, helps give this trail chameleon its speed on the climbs and its rock-eating Maestro Suspension gives it confidence when the trail gets rough. With a little extra suspension up front, 120mm instead of 100mm, this SX version blurs the line between XC and trail. The frame features Giant's OverDrive steerer tube for razor-sharp handling, plus a PowerCore bottom bracket for maximum pedalling stiffness and power transfer.
