2013 Giant Anthem X 29er 2

Roll up, over and down almost anything you want on Giant's Anthem X 29er 2. Big 29-inch wheels and Giant's Maestro rear suspension keep you glued to the trail while a tapered steerer and 15mm through axle on the 100mm RockShox Reba ensures a straight tracking guide down technical descents. Out back, the Monarch shock tames the hits no matter how hard you're charging down the trail. On the ride back up, a SRAM 2x10 drivetrain gives you plenty of gear range so you can spin the 29-inch Giant wheels with tubeless-ready tires. To give the Anthem exquisite trail manners, you've also got Avid Elixir discs and Giant Connect controls. So whether you're into marathon races, all-day epics, or even XC racing, this is your Anthem.

    Comments:

    I have been riding a Hardtail Giant XTC 2013 since May as my first quality MTB and did not want to let go because I did not want lose speed for comfort. But this bike Actually improve my speed down and uphill. The Sram 5/7 components are ok components so far. Rode several 27.5 Giant Bikes (Anthem 14, Trance 14) but did not feel comfortable as the 29er maybe because I am 6'1.5''. So far I am very happy with my Giant Anthem X 29er 2 as my first FS MTB.

    I bought this bike a year ago from my LBS. It's my 1st 29er and best bike I've owned. I have no excuse for taking so long to post a review, just been riding my bike. :^D. It has allowed me to ride better than my skill set. I try to ride a trail at least once a week. I've only raced with it once, but I enjoyed every minute of the Turkey Mt. in Tulsa OK. I hope to race it more in the 2013 race season.I enjoy this bike so much, I went back to my LBS. I got my wife the 2013 Anthem X29erW . She is really enjoying her bike too.

    I bought this bike from [...] last week and love it (4 good rides on it so far) The bike handles great, climbs like a dream, and takes on anything a trail has to offer. This is my first 29er, and what a difference it makes over my previous 26inch mtn bike.The only item I may change on it is cutting down on the width of the handlebars, otherwise I have no complaints about this bike.I'm really happy about purchasing this bike!

      My son and I each bought one. They suck up the bumps great while still maintaining excellent control. We both picked up taller handle bars for better comfort.

        I went from 26 to 29er and Anthem X29er was my choice, test rode other 29ers but test rode this one on the trails and I was hooked, I quickly noticed how much faster I was and the climbs I could not make before on my 26, I do with ease.

          Why did I wait 14 years to upgrade my bike? The technology is pretty amazing. It climbs like nobody's bussines. It carves turns, and stops amazingly. I have nothing but praise for Giant bikes, especially the Anthem 29er. Thanks to Curt for helping me find the perfect bike!

            This bike is full stop, bar none the best cross country bike I have ever ridden. The combination of the 29er wheels and the 4 inches of suspension travel add up to the best riding, smoothest, most fun cross country bike I've ever ridden. This bike excels on rough race courses as well as on all-day epics. I can't say enough good things about this bike. Just get one, and you'll be happy you did.
