Climb quicker, descend with full confidence. This proven XC and trail machine handles challenging terrain at speed.
The Anthem is built on a lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame that’s specifically engineered for quick and agile 27.5-inch wheels. It features the latest Maestro rear suspension design with a Trunnion-mount shock for smoother trail performance and an Advanced Forged upper rocker arm for added stiffness. It features an updated 130mm suspension fork up front and Boost hub spacing (110 front/148 rear), which improves wheel stiffness for even more control. The OverDrive steerer tube gives it a stiff front end for razor-sharp steering, and the PowerCore bottom bracket maximizes pedaling stiffness and power transfer.

I bought this bike to get back in the game so to speak after several years away from the sport. The Anthem 2 is a great bike to really step into the game. It's not to expensive that you have to sell a kidney and still comes with some nice parts and featured. It's also easily upgradeable. I've been running this bike now for a year and a half and each time it performs very well and comes back asking for more.
it is affordable and awesome what else could you ask for
Two year NRS rider, loved it. Switched to the anthem this year after riding a couple here and there. Let me say I love it. Have been mtb. for 15 years so I have ridn a few bikes in my day.
