Giant has made the cycling world continually chase it with great value-for-dollar high-performance machines. This Anthem 27.5 2 is no exception.

Every full-suspension cross-country mountain bike worthy of the name needs to bring its "A-game" when it comes to control on tricky, challenging terrain. The frame isn't just any old alloy, but Giant's own ALUXX-SL hydroformed aluminum tubing. With a frame shaped for a smooth ride as well as strength and light weight, the Anthem 27.5 2 is ready for race days and trail days alike. The Anthem 27.5 2 uses the same race-proven Maestro rear suspension technology as its Olympic-level bretheren in the Giant cross-country line. Maestro keeps the rear wheel tracking smoothly over obstacles and rock gardens, even under hard braking. The upper and lower control arms act like the wishbones found on high-performance sportscars and racing cars, allowing the rear shock to function with full effectiveness. With a thru-axle rear hub, the rear wheel resists twisting while under power so no energy is wasted. The rear shock is connected at the top with an Advanced Forged composite rocker link that also resists torsional twisting, allowing the shock to function better during high-speed rides through rock gardens and other technical sections. The crankset is installed in a press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket for flex-free power transfer. Up front, a tapered OverDrive head tube also resists twisting, adding an extra dash of precision to the Anthem 27.5 2's handling. An air-adjustable Fox Float Performance EVOL rear shock is the core of the Maestro rear suspension, allowing the rider to tune the Anthem for a wide range of trail conditions and rider weight. An air-adjustable Fox 34 Rhythm suspension fork sports a 15mm thru-axle and a Boost110 hub to help keep the front tire tracking cleanly over rough courses.

Shimano's 11-speed SLX shifter and SLX Shadow+ rear drailleur handles shifting operations across a Shimano SLX 11-42T rear cassette. A Shimano SLX 30T crankset keeps it simple and light for maximum climbing and reliability as well as a huge gearing range for steep climbs. Giant's own XC-2 alloy wheels and Schwalbe tires offer confident grip and handling on a wide range of trails. Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes help keep speed reigned in with 180mm front and 160mm rear discs. Giant's alloy Contact Trail handlebars and Contact stem are matched with a Contact SL Switch-R remote dropper post and Contact saddle.
