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 travel Fox fork ensures a straight tracking guide down technical descents. Out back, Fox's RP2 rear shock tames the hits no matter how hard you're charging down the trail. On the ride back up, Shimano's 10-speed SLX/XT drivetrain has an 11-36 cassette for plenty of gear range so you can spin the 29-inch Giant wheels. Other fine components include Avid Elixir brakes and a supportive Fizik saddle.

The 100mm-travel rear suspension features strategically positioned pivots that create a floating axis for excellent pedaling efficiency. It prevents energy-sapping bobbing and increases suspension sensitivity for optimum traction, comfort and control.

    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.
