Anthem Adv Pro 1
Giant has been playing with the identity of its long-standing short travel machine for several seasons now. More than two years in the making, this new addition to the legendary Anthem series blends the most up-to-date Maestro rear suspension with the speed, control and stability of totally reengineered 29er frame geometry.
Handcrafted with a superlight Advanced-grade composite mainframe and rear triangle, it features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel and 100mm up front. Its evolution can be read almost as a history of mountain bike fashions.
From emergence as a precocious XC race machine it followed the trend for bigger wheels and results in a fire-breathing XC machine that’s all about speed and control. The new trunnion mount shock produces a lower leverage ratio for better pedaling and braking efficiency, and also allows for shorter chainstays to improve the bike’s climbing capabilities and agility.
The Anthem integrates several key technologies that claim to bring improvements in suspension performance, handling and frame stiffness. Those changes include a move to Boost rear hub spacing, which offsets the drivetrain away from the frame by 3mm, allowing for more room to play with around the chainstays to widen tyre clearance, while shrinking chainstay length.
The Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than the previous aluminum version. And the combination of wider Boost hub spacing and Giant WheelSystems gives you super strong and stiff wheels for confident, precise handling on rugged trails. If you are looking for a bike that rolls fast and smooth on flowy terrain the all-new Anthem Advanced Pro 29 is the perfect mountain bike rental on your next Vail Vacation.
