Details

Get ready to ride with the fast guys of the XC world on Giant's Anthem Advanced 27.5 1. This carbon and aluminum rocketship boasts Giant's Maestro rear suspension and a Fox Float CTD shock to tame rough terrain while fast-rolling 27.5-inch wheels skim over tough obstacles. On the front, a tapered OverDrive 2 steerer and 15mm through-axle on the 100mm-travel Fox 32 Float CTD fork ensure a true-tracking front end for dialed steering. Of course, Shimano's 2x10 Deore XT drivetrain matches that go-fast ethos. Other awesome components include Shimano Deore XT discs, Schwalbe tubeless-ready tires, Giant's Contact components, and a sleek, supportive Fizik Tundra saddle.

Giant’s OverDrive 2 delivers up to 30%-better cornering and sprinting stiffness and control than non-tapered front ends with:
1/2) 1 ¼-inch/1 ½-inch diameter bearings
3) 1 ¼-inch diameter Giant stem
4) Tapered fork steerer
5) Giant OverDrive steerer plug

27.5-inch wheels (also known as 650B) offer the best characteristics of 26- and 29-inch wheels for an outstanding ride.

27.5-Inch (650B) wheel/tire performance.

Efficiency: Increasing the wheel diameter decreases the angle of attack (the angle at which round objects meet square objects). The lower the angle, the easier it is to roll over obstacles and maintain momentum.

Traction: With a larger diameter, the tire's contact patch increases, putting more rubber on the trail. A 27.5-inch (650B) has nearly the same contact patch as a 29er for superb acceleration, braking and cornering.

Weight: The weight of a 27.5 wheel, tire and tube is only 5% more than an identically built 26-inch wheel. Compare this to a 12% increase with a 29-inch wheel. Lighter wheels mean a lighter bike, and better climbing and acceleration.
