The other day I was fortunate enough to spend some quality time with the hottest new bike in Giant's 2011 line-up. Before I get too much into it I would like to describe this bike as what you get when you mate a howitzer with a razor blade. The 2011 Anthem X 29er has all the design features that previous 29ers simply didn't provide. The combination of it's tapered head tube and QR15mm front thru-axle give you razor sharp stearing and a BB92 bottom bracket to ensure stiffness clearly shows that Giant went the extra mile in producing their first ever full suspension 29er. Giant also uses their Maestro suspension system which gives you a single floating pivot point to increase your pedaling efficiency. The frame was designed using Giants very own ALUXX Aluminum, a light weight grade of aluminum created to withstand the highest tolerances, not to mention it is molded at Giants in-house foundry.
If you're looking for a bike to pound the competition into a fine powder, look no further. This bike has already been proven a race winner as Carl Decker of Giant's pro race team won the 2010 Sea Otter Super-D in California. I feel confident in saying the Anthem X 29er will far exceed all expectations, don't believe me? Come on down to our 3020 location for a test ride,we've got a medium in for limited time as a demo, so come in and ride it!
