The Giant Anthem Advanced SX 27.5 Complete Mountain Bike is forged from a new era in bike building where speed and agility are combined with enough 'umph' to handle a surprising amount of gnarly terrain.

Drive Train

SRAM X01 ShifterGet sharp, dependable shifting with the SRAM X01 X-ACTUATION™ trigger shifter. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the X01 trigger shifter brings championship technology to everyone.

SRAM X01 Rear DerailleurThanks to its “horizontal parallelogram” design, X-HORIZON™ can keep the chain gap the same across all 11 gears. By taking vertical movement out of the equation, this design doesn’t just make shifting faster—it reduces shift force and eliminates ghost shifting. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology reduces bounce and chain slap. CAGE LOCK™ technology makes wheel removal and installation easier than ever before. Paired with the X01 shifter, the X-HORIZON™ RD forms the backbone of X-ACTUATION™ technology: the key to totally smooth shifting action.

SRAM X01 32T CranksetCNC machined 7075, two-tone anodized chainring built for total chain control. Each tooth’s thickness is CNC machined to fit better into the chain’s inner and outer links. X-SYNC™ tall, square tooth design provides maximum chain control. Sharp, narrow tooth profile and rounded chamfer edges help manage a deflected chain. Mud-clearing recesses for the inner chain links and rollers. Carbon arms with forged aluminum spider.

SRAM XG-1180 CassetteThe XG-1180 MINI CLUSTER™ hybrid cassette is light, durable and equipped with a 10-42 gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. MINI CLUSTER™ construction combines three small cogs that are CNC machined out of a single block of billet steel with an additional eight cogs that are individually pinned together.


SRAM Guide RSFast isn’t about pure speed, it’s about perfect speed. It’s about knowing the right line and having the confidence to ride it. Flawlessly. The new SRAM Guide RS is precision at your fingertips, with a proven 4-piston caliper and innovative SwingLink™ lever technology that gives you more positive pad contact and increased braking authority. Light, crisp, clean and now compliments your SRAM drivetrain. Go faster. Now featuring the World Championship-winning S4 caliper with Bleeding Edge™ and Heat Shield technologies.
