Product Details

2011 Giant Anthem X2

Giant's Anthem X2 is your go-to machine for epic days and fast rides. The Anthem’s ALUXX SL frame gives you everything you want for XC: super-light quickness, amazing torsional stiffness and awesome climbing ability. Four inches of Maestro rear suspension is incredibly active, yet doesn't soak up precious pedal power. Up front, a plush Fox F100 fork and race-tuned geometry shred singletrack so well you'll surprise yourself. Plus, the Anthem hooks you up with speedy Giant rims wrapped in Maxxis tires, a slick Shimano Deore/SLX drivetrain and powerful disc brakes.

      Comments:

      Holy cow! you absolutely can not beat this bike for the money. I thought I'd never outdo my Specialized Epic but the Anthem X2 is lighter, has a stiffer rear triangle, climbs better, and descends like riding a couch. The ProPedal feature on the rear shock works well to prevent pedal bob on flat terrain or while climbing, and the Maestro suspension is really plush on the descents. The component spec on this bike is unreal for the money...a true full XT spec! The WTB hubs are light and sweet too. I've also got to mention the dynamite color scheme...way to go Giant. There are a few very minor weak spots...no remote lockout available for the Fox fork, the Race Face Evolve components are kind of lower end but easily upgraded if you choose, and I'd rather see DT spokes with alloy nipples instead of generic spokes and brass nipples on the wheels. These are all really minor quibbles however because if you buy a Specialized or Trek with the spec that this bike has you will be paying thousands more. great job Giant!

        This bike feels fast compared to all other full suspensions I have ever ridden. Good components for the price - smooth brakes & shifting. Great handling. The only problem so far was the cheaper stock wheels losing true easily. Wouldn't change anything else. The X1 or XO has better wheels (and bigger price). My upgrade to Crossmax tubeless wheels easily put this bike under 25 lbs.
