Giant was demoing a few of their 2013 complete bikes, and we got to take a look at the 2013 Giant Anthem X Advanced 29er 0, their top tier.
The 2013 Anthem X Advanced 29er 0 is the bike that Team Rabobank-Giant World XC will ride, so this bike means business.
A couple years ago when Giant introduced the Anthem X 29er, the frames were made of aluminum. This year Giant introduced the carbon fiber frames using the same geometry but about a half pound lighter. As a complete, the 29er 0 weighs in at 22.5 pounds.
Down to the specs, the Giant’s new Anthem X Advanced comes equipped with Rock Shox SID RCT3 forks with 100mm of travel, Rock Shox Monarch RT3 shock, Maestro Suspension, Sram XX drivetrain, and Sram Rise 60 carbon wheelset.
Hitting Giant retailers over the Summer, the MSRP for the 2013 Giant Anthem X Advanced 29er 0 is $8900.
