Description of Giant ANTHEM ADVANCED 27.5" MTB Frame - 2017 - carbonblack-racegreen matt
XC Speed Machine!
This XC legend returns with big updates for 2017. Featuring an updated platform with 110 mm of rear suspension travel and 120 mm up front, plus the superior all-around performance of 27.5-inch wheels, the new Anthem Advanced delivers lighter weight, better efficiency and improved control. The rear suspension features an all-new trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged composite rocker arm for added strength and stiffness. And all-new, wider Boost hub spacing (148 mm) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance. For riders seeking the lightest, fastest and most efficient Maestro-equipped Giant, this is the ultimate XC speed machine.
Advanced Composite Frame - High-performance T-700 raw carbon fiber is used to produce custom composite material in Giant’s own composite factory. Extremely lightweight, stiff and compliant, these handcrafted frames feature the monocoque construction.
27.5-Specific Geometry - Updated “long and low” XC frame geometry is tailored for 27.5-inch wheels to optimize control, acceleration and stability.
Boost Technology - Wider hub spacing (110 mm front/148 mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tire clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance.
Advanced forged Composite Upper Rocker Arm - 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 aluminum components.
Maestro Suspension - Uses four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system.
Trunnion Mount - New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedaling and braking efficiency, plus a lower center of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility.
Powercore - A massively oversized bottom-bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 92-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
Megadrive - A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
Overdrive - Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
