Giant Anthem X 29er 4 W - Women's


Hills, rocks, roots—trail obstacles are all easier on Giant's women's-specific Anthem X 29er W. It features a RockShox Monarch rear shock with 100mm of Giant's renowned Maestro suspension technology that provides awesome traction and unreal descending capabilities without robbing you of any pedaling power. For your fork, you've got a RockShox Recon to guide you safely through the rough sections. Shimano's Deore group gives you 30 speeds, so any hill is easily within your grasp and you have powerful Avid Elixir disc brakes to keep your speed in check. And you'll love the light Giant wheels and the women's-specific 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

I am 4 ft 11 in. Never thought I would find a 29er to fit me. This bike was made for womens geometry and the xs fits me great. It is a 29 pound bike. Not too heavy considering the low end components. However, it doesn't feel heavy on the trail. It rolls over techy stuff so easy. Also, it climbs so well. The wheel stays grounded over bumps and helps preserve energy, I guess. Just so surprised that the climb doesn't feel cumbersome like I expected. I am a better rider just from the bike. I have always had racy 26ers but will never go back now that I've experienced the big wheel. I will upgrade the components to save weight but the frame is nice enough to make it worth it. The Maestro suspension is very smooth. Previous bikes: Titus Racer-X xxs, Pivot Mach4 xxs, Titus Moto-lite xs This bike will fit you if you're little. You'll love it!
