The Anthem X 29er has a Maestro suspension platform. It also has Giant bars, stem and post. The frame is made from Fluid Formed AluxX SL aluminum material. Other features include a tapered headtube, Fizik Antares saddle which will be color matched to the frame.
The new 29er has press-fit bottom bracket, 445 brakes and 100mm travel for its rear wheel. It is spec’d with Shimano SLX components and Fox F29 RL 100 fork.
A rave review was given by rider Carl Decker on the 2011 Giant Anthem X 29er, “This bike felt pretty amazing. I can tell you now I’m pretty much going to race this on everything this year. It’s super fast.”
