For added control on aggressive XC terrain, this revamped composite bike floats up climbs and rails rugged descents.
Fly up steep climbs, bomb down technical trails. Updated for 2017, the Anthem Advanced SX features enhanced Maestro rear suspension with 110mm of rear travel and an all-new trunnion mount shock with an Advanced Forged composite rocker arm for added strength. A more aggressive fork with 130mm of travel makes it ideal for rougher trails, and the frame is engineered for the superior all-around performance of 27.5-inch wheels. This new model also features wider Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear), which results in stiffer wheels for added control, plus more tire clearance and improved drivetrain performance. For advanced XC and trail riders who like to mix things up on technical terrain, this is the bike that lets you do it all.
