Giant Media Buzz!


Watch out beachgoers, just in time for summer, “Giant’s Anthem X 29er goes on a Diet.” Recently, the Wrecking Crew at Mountain Bike Action magazine was invited to Westlake Village, CA, to spend some quality time with Giant’s new 2013 Anthem X Advanced 29er as well as the 2013 Anthem X 29er W. After many hours on the famed Backbone Trail they were impressed with the ride and the editors download their experience in the August issue: “We were glad to find that by making the bike into a featherweight, it doesn’t give up any of its willingness to charge down rough sections at full speed.” They were also impressed with the latest Liv/giant offering in the Anthem X 29er W: “…a first of its kind, offering full suspension and 29-inch wheels in a women’s-specific platform.”

Not only did the Wrecking Crew get a sneak preview but they also got some lessons from the pros: “Carl Decker is a rider who knows how to make any section of trail flow. Following his line down descents we’ve done countless times, it opened our eyes to new ways of looking at the trail.”  Find more information from the 2013 Anthem X Advanced 29er review on the Giant USA Website. Or read it all in Mountain Bike Action available on newsstands now.
