Let's hope your riding buddies like the sight of your rear wheel, because that's all they're going to see as you rip down the trail on Giant's Anthem Advanced 27.5 0 Team. This composite and aluminum race rig boasts Giant's Maestro suspension and a RockShox Monarch RL shock to tame rocky terrain while fast-rolling 27.5-inch composite wheels accelerate like mad. Up front, the 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork ensures an incredibly supple, true-tracking front end for slashing the corners. Of course, SRAM's 1x11-speed XX1 drivetrain matches that go-fast ethos. Other awesome components include Avid XX hydraulic brakes, Schwalbe tubeless-ready tires, Giant's Contact SLR composite cockpit and sleek, supportive saddle.
Climb fast and descend faster with Giant's Anthem SX 27.5. The ALUXX SL aluminum frame creates a responsive rig that's fast on the climbs and a hard charger on the descents. The roughest trails are buttery smooth courtesy of the 100mm of travel in Fox's Float Performance Elite shock, while the Fox Float Performance Elite fork with 120mm of travel up front squashes the big hits and mutes the chatter with equal ease. Giant double-wall 27.5-inch aluminum wheels are nimble enough for weaving technical lines and big enough to steamroll everything else, and they're wrapped in Schwalbe rubber for railing the corners. A trail chameleon like this needs a drivetrain that can handle the ups, downs, and everything in between, which is why Shimano's Deore/SLX/XT adorns this rig. And with all that speed, you'll need reliable brakes that can modulate, so Shimano's SLX discs are on the case. And, a Giant Contact SL Switch-R dropper post gets you in the best position possible for shredding descents.
