The Giant Anthem Advanced 1 can handle roller-coaster courses, technical rock gardens and multi-hour races. Can you say the same thing?

The Giant Anthem Advanced 1 is a staggeringly fast machine, ready to take on courses that make a rider wonder what bike to bring to the party. The main triangle is produced from Giant's Advanced Composite carbon fiber, bringing incredible torsional strength and feather-light weight to the Anthem Advanced 1. High strength isn't just helpful during all-out sprints and climbs, but ensures the bike's handling is precise in technical terrain. The Anthem Advanced 1 also features a tapered OverDrive steerer tube, adding to the bike's handling prowess, especially under braking or tackling twisty trails. A press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery from the Shimano single-ringcrankset. The rear Maestro suspension brings a motorsports-inspired profile with upper and lower rocker links and a rigid "upright" rear triangle made from Giant's own ALUXX SL-grade aluminum alloy. The upper rocker link isn't a flimsy aluminum construction; it's a single piece of Advanced Forged composite material that lets the rear shock work smoothly without lateral binding. The rear shock itself is an air-adjustable Fox Float Performance Elite unit that brings 110mm of travel to the rear wheel. Up front, a Fox 34 Float Performance Elite fork helps keep the front wheel pointed precisely with 120mm of travel. Air-adjustability, beefy 34mm stanchions and adjustable rebound make the Anthem Advanced 1 an effective weapon when fighting your way through rooty singletrack and rock gardens. Connecting the wheels to the Anthem Advanced 2 are thru-axles front and rear. Up front, the 15mm alloy Kabolt thru-axle adds another layer of torsional strength to the fork. Slightly wider Boost110/148 hub spacing improves the lateral strength of the XCR 1 Composite wheels.

A superlative component selection truly sets the Anthem Advanced 1 apart from the crowd.

Shimano's single-ring XT drivetrain makes a strong arguement for throwing away front derailleurs. With precise shifting -both up and down the cassette- through the 11-speed XT shifter, the Anthem Advanced 1 lets you concentrate on the trails instead of wondering if you're cross-chaining with every shift. The Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur's strength and precision eliminates slow responses, even during low-cadence shifts under power. A Shimano XT 30T Hollowtech 2 crankset is built with hollow-forged arms for lightness, while Dynamic Chain Engagement (DCE) chainring teeth prevent a thrown chain. A massive Shimano XT 11-46T cassette boasts a huge gearing range for race and trail challenges. Giant supplies the 27.5" XCR 1 Composite wheels that weight only 1565 grams a pair (yes, you read that right). They're tubeless-ready and have DT Swiss hub internals for long life. Schwalbe's 27.5x2.25" Nobby Nic tires bring massive grip for all manner of trail surfaces from hardpan gravel to loose dirt and mud. Hydraulic Shimano XT disc brakes help reign in speed, even in wet and messy conditions. A Giant Contact SL Switch-R dropper post gets the Contact saddle out of your way during super-steep descents with a bar-mounted remote lever. Cool, huh? An alloy Contact SL stem and SL handlebar complete this race- and trail-ready machine.
