Product Details

2011 Giant Anthem X 29er 1

Giant's Anthem X 29er 1 combines Giant's Maestro rear suspension and 29 inch wheels for a combination that'll have you leading the pack. A tapered steerer tube and 15mm through axle on the 100mm travel Fox fork ensures a true tracking shred down technical descents. That fine front end is balanced by Fox's RP23 rear shock which sucks up every bump no matter how hard you're charging down the trail. On the ride back up, Shimano's 10-speed XT drivetrain has an 11-36 cassette for plenty of gear range so you can spin the 29-inch Giant wheels. Other awesome components include Avid Elixir brakes, Maxxis tires and a supportive Fizik saddle.

    This is an incredible bike that has taken everything I throw at it and laughs. This is an upgrade from a 17yr old Schwinn Home Grown full suspension. Riding in the Colorado Mts has become even more fun. Before I was having to focus on my line up and down the mountain trails. Now I just fly over them with complete confidence ! Wish it came in a better color though !

    This bike totally changed me, i was getting dis heartened by the fact i couldnt really keep up with my mates on carbon frame bikes and other 29er's, untill the saviour landed. Now they cant keep up with me. True storey. Unbeleivable bike. I have since kicked my wife out of bed and now my bike is there. I LOVE MY GIANT.

        Easily took my mountain biking skills to the next level. The Giant X 29er 1 is light, the frame is strong and does not flex at all. It is so much fun to ride this bike. It feels plush and comfortable, yet you can partake in XC races if you have the urge and skill set. Super bike, especially for the price. Congrats, Giant.
