Bikemagic’s month of 29ers: Giant Anthem X 29er

Giant Anthem X 29er 1

For their growing 29er range Giant has taken its classic cross-country/marathon/stage race-ready Anthem and redesigned it around 29in wheels. It’s a future classic in the making.

What makes it special?

Giant uses the tried-and-tested Maestro suspension platform to delivery 100mm of travel in turning the venerable Anthem into a 29er. The frame is a Fluid Formed AluxX SL aluminium frame featuring a tapered OverDrive headtube and PowerCore Press-Fit bottom bracket, which allows for the impressively large downtube to be fitted to the front triangle.

Giant’s Anthem is one of the best looking and best value we’ve seen so far. More info.
