An ALUXX SL aluminum frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this smooth riding 29er delivers speed, balance and control on fast, technical XC terrain. Optimized for larger diameter wheels with an updated Maestro suspension system that’s configured for a tighter rear triangle. Giant Anthem 2's new geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on steep climbs and sharp descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces super smooth, supple feel with improved pedaling efficiency. Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter and stronger than the previous aluminum version. Lightweight integrated Giant Wheel System with Boost technology comes with tubeless tires already set up, making it easy to experience added efficiency and control on technical terrain.

|Weight||The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.|

TECHNOLOGIES & FEATURES
ALUXX SL Aluminum Technology
This High-Performance level, state-of-the-art aluminum material is made predominantly from 6011 alloy and delivers best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios. These framesets also feature unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.
Advanced Forged Composite Technology
A state-of-the-art high-pressure molding process is used to produce complex-shaped carbon fiber components that are lighter, stiffer and stronger than similar components made from aluminum. This technology is used in critical performance parts such as Maestro Suspension rocker links.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
Maestro Suspension Technology
Four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages all work together to create a single floating pivot for the most active, efficient and independent suspension system on the trail.
Giant’s original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper for road, 1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
